His works often connect diverse conceptual references through his own lived experience of migration, culture and aesthetics. The artistic outcomes are processual and conceptually-charged, and embraces multiple mediums ranging from drawings to installations, sound and live art.

His work for State of Motion 2018 is the ninth in the Path. series, and incorporates a drawing—musical graphic notation—from Stone telling.

About Artwork

Path. 9, ))) ) ) ))

The ninth work of the artist’s Path. series, Path. 9, ))) ) ) )) continues Widjaja’s enquiry into the performative potential of place, movement, origin and identity; channelling some of their effects—separation, (re)connections, anxieties, melancholy—through live art strategies. In this instance, participants stand beneath a flyover at Sungei Serangoon, encountering a spatial gulf as represented by the river and which speaks of both separation and connection. The artist worked with Tong Wei Jie as sound collaborator for Path. 9, ))) ) ) )). The symbols in the title suggest the longitudinal waves that are formed by sound, referencing a recurring sound motif from the film Sri Menanti—the flute that is played by the male lead.
