Title: Berburu Ego di Belantara Jiwa (Ego Hunting in the Wildlife of the Soul)
Medium: Watercolour on paper
Size (cm): 120 x 80
Berburu Ego di Belantara Jiwa is inspired by the Indonesian poet, Wiji Thukul. The artwork portrays the soul as foliage – leaves that grant life, and animals and hunters who fight against each other. The pigs, alligators and snake hidden within the foliage are the metaphors for one’s ego that must be exterminated by the hunter's mind and consciousness.
