Extrinsic Border

Artists in collaboration: 

Áine Belton
Moch Hasrul

Documentation in UCA, Catenbury, UK The second informal greeting will take form of an X-ray projection of both artists’ personal items into two different suitcases, with an audio of both artists’ narrating their personal items in English and Indonesian languages. This attempt has also revealed their individual secrecy into the eyes of the spectators. It also has triggered the question on how and through which vision would it be perceived by the spectators? As it will be revealed to public, will then be perceived as Bryson (2011:134) stated: “Vision is socialized, and visual reality can be measured and named, as hallucination misrecognition, or ‘visual disturbance’”?

“…there is a third type of line, stranger still, as though something were carrying us away, through our segments but also across our thresholds, towards an unknown destination, neither pre-existent nor foreseeable.” (Deleuze 2002:67)

Extrinsic Border is the first project of Stella & The yellowSUITCASE, representing Áine Belton (Margate-UK) and Mochammad Hasrul Indrabakti (Jakarta-Indonesia).

Departing from the idea of informal greetings, both artists were exploring two forms of experimental collaborative project: “UnDiscover Margate: performative walk Margate/Jakarta street collage installation” and “Koper Identitas”.
