Bara: embers

[bah-rah] noun, Indonesian

2 March- 3 April 2020

An exhibition by Woven Kolektif celebrating International Women's Day.

Bara are the smouldering embers.

Bara can start a fire and are there at the finish of the fire.

Bara keep alive something which can easily be put out, or be lit again. 

What do our inner embers tell us? We question where our culture lies - in the heat of the bara, or in the water that puts them out? How do we use the heat of the bara for regeneration and growth?
