Tanpa Bayangan Mu (Shadowless)

2020. Moving image and book. Commissioned by the National Arts Council Singapore and Plural Art Mag for Our Heartlands.

Boedi revisits his long-running relationship with Bras Basah Complex, also known as 书城 or "City of Books". For the artist, the place is synonymous with familial reunions and separations; Boedi and his father frequented it when the latter made his once or twice-a-year trip to Singapore. A one-armed swordsman is sketched repeatedly across pages of a chinese classics-styled book, along with the sappy subtitles of a song of heartbreak. The work reads like a lament of separation from one's lover, or perhaps, a beloved place of poignant childhood memories.
