People are missing. Justice is missing.
However, history remains.
After their disappearance made by the country,
Munir, Poster, Marsinah, Widji Thukul and Udin reappear in the form of soap
sculptures. These missing persons soaps are available to the public. Those
figures history tried to eliminate will disappear once again with each hand
wash. Through The Soap Project (2015), Agung 'Leak' Kurniawan discusses
political issues under the government's power tendency to 'wash their
hands' than truth-seeking efforts. The Soap Project offers not only
multisensory experience, but also brings the public closer to the political
issues through everyday objects and activities.
In addition to The Soap Project, Agung will
once again feature his Kimchil Series (2015). Through this life size
installation, Agung displays the kimcil phenomenon, a slang term for female
teenagers identical to instability and delinquency that are often found on the
streets of Jakarta.
