we were having another chance to do a collaborating work again with Iwan Effendi.
On July 2012, Iwan Effendi feat, Papermoon Puppet Theatre were invited to join ARTJOG 2012.
The ARTJOG 2012 committee invited us to install an artwork in a special spot.
Then Iwan decided to make an installation, based on Papermoon's performance : "Secangkir Kopi dari Playa". (click in the tittle if you want to know about the play)
"Illuminate the story" is the tittle of the puppet installation.
This installation is based on a true story of a young man who were exiled for 40 years by the new orde government, from his own country, Indonesia, just because he was sent by the first President of Indonesia to learn Metalurgic in Uni Sovyet.
All things about him suddenly disappeared for 40 years.
No news for the families, friends, and fiancee.
He lost his citizenship, and don't know when he can comeback home.
Until now, he's still there.
Always keep his promise, to love his country, and to keep his promise to his long lost lover.
He is still there.
Starring at his lovely hometown from far, with his 75 years old eyes.
