In Our Room

In Our Room is a collaboration between Ruang Alternatif (Cirebon, Indonesia) and Sa Sa Art Projects (Phnom Penh, Cambodia). It builds on Ruang Alternatif’s In My Room project, which is a social and cultural space and happening where people can come together and immerse with different activities as a form of social bond while exercising agency and emancipation.

For the Jakarta Biennale, In Our Room proposes and produces a hybrid “island” room of cross-disciplines and cross-cultures from Cirebon and Phnom Penh. Presented as a domestic setting of someone’s living room, the audience can experience art and culture from both Indonesia and Cambodia, such as karaoke, music, dance, local legends, and food. The furniture is made from recycle plastic, a practice by Ruang Alternatif.
This collaboration introduces cross-cultures, creativity, and shared values on art and community between Ruang Alternatif and Sa Sa Art Projects. In Our Room is a welcoming “island” that is open to everyone and to every possibility.
