A project initiated from a conversation between Belgian curator Philippe Pirotte and Jakarta-based artist Ade Darmawan, along with Zac Langdon-Pole, Shubigi Rao, Lucy Raven, and Melati Suryodarmo, this exhibition reflects on Indonesian author Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s book Arus Balik. Translates as “turning of the tide”, the exhibition takes the novel as a starting point and expands on perspectival shifts in geopolitical, cultural, social, religious, and natural spheres. This exhibition acts as NTU CCA Singapore’s response and contribution to this year’s nation-wide bicentennial commemoration that reflects on Singapore’s history.
