Facing the Others - Ragil Dwi Putra Solo Exhibition

RUBANAH Underground Hub, Jakarta, 2019, 9.February – 9. March 2019, Curated by Gesyada Siregar

Facing The Others is a photo-performance work series in a form of stop motion videos that Ragil Dwi Putra had done for almost a year. During that period, he borrowed 154 other people’s clothing that has different cultural, gender, social and functional characteristics. The various clothes were worn on his body in front of a mirror and then photographed using a camera. The idea of this work departs from his curiosity about what would happen if the clothes representing various identities are placed in a foreign body - his own body. Will it create a new identity or just the opposite?
