Pilgrimage

Negotiating Archaeologies of the Future

In 2018, four artists; Tita Salina, Irwan Ahmett, Hannah Ekin and Jorgen Doyle along with Rujak Centre initiated Ziarah Utara (Pilgrimage to the North) an ongoing project which conducted for 11 days along the coastline of North Jakarta started on February 14 to 24, measuring every inch of ground along the 42-kilometre stretch that is slowly sinking due to rising sea levels. They made documentations and story collecting from marginalised communities, such as traditional fishermen and villages that have since been evicted, as a way to reconcile broken relationships driven by political agendas and honour the value of culture and shared community.
