A outlander entering Indonesia is placed in a new and unknown environment that induces a variety of emotions, such as : fear, surprise, awe, joy, disgust and anxiety. On a way to finding harmony of space and adaptation, one must reshape his imagination, beliefs and convictions.
Through a series of explorations, practices with diverse local materials and creative acts I have tried to explain the surrounding environment to myself. By experimenting with textures, shapes and colours I was seeking conceptual values and reflections.
The things that caught my interest were local men's long nails. No one would explain theirs sincere symbolism. They were supposed to be: weapons, symbol of status, tools, long forgotten tradition or magic talismans. Finding the truth was a tipping point of my adaptation process and `Kuku `Bimas became a symbol of reconfiguration. Under every activity and decision lies hidden, subconscious mindset rooted in tribal rituals, culture and beliefs.
