For this year’s Hamburger Community residency, Ratri Notosudirdjo presents a series of street performances, handwritten poetry and installations that encapsulate the world of collision, where unfamiliar landscapes are fabulated from the un-uniform collective body. The landscape explored pulls apart narrative identity, focusing on narratives in relation to diaspora and migration, and is inspired by the close realities of second and third generation immigrants in her family, friends and co-workers. These nonlinear performances and poetic storytelling come from the space of tension that emerges from code-switching and absorbing multifaceted cultural realities. The landscape created by the collection of works in along along, generates ways to imagine how this can uniquely shape the subconscious plain.

The material focus of along along is on embroidered masks, large fabric works, shadow puppetry, soundscapes and choreography. Surrealism and invented symbolism are poignant in each performance and take inspiration from her Indonesian heritage. Some of the direct themes explored within diaspora and migrative narrative are a) the collision of family hierarchy and roles between different cultural structures, b) the tension of integrating from the home life into the public sphere and c) the destruction that occurs when trying to negotiate between one’s cultural, poetic and spiritual identity.
