2014 – ongoing

Series of collages made from pressed tulip petals, with motifs taken from the Tampan, small square-shaped woven cloths that were exchanged during important rites of passage. Tampan are found in the Lampung region of southern Sumatra, a crucial trade route since antiquity, which has long been a crossroads of cultures and artistic traditions. Tampan were owned and used by Lampung families for ritual occasions and to assist each individual to progress through the diverse ceremonies that marked the various stages of life.
