A reference library arranged by a museum Janitor...



“A reference library arranged by a museum janitor…” was about a man who secretly researched about traces of secret society. His focus was to explore such an agent active over the Netherlands, Indonesia and Japan. He was a Janitor and collected reference materials to reveal a presence of such an agent.

He realized that in such an agent there was always a man who can access to two different countries by his native and second languages. This kind of man always knows both truth and lie and the following effects of information and knowledge in order to form particular results.

In this installation, there is a photographic work showing several cameras and video cameras surrounding something. This something was Indonesian widows who were left by Indonesian husbands killed in a small village called “Rawagede” where massacre occurred by the Dutch soldiers in 1947.
