Nusantara Series: Lurking

Description

What if Hang Tuah stumbled upon a crashed Alien ship when he was away to live as an ascetic? With his beloved Taming Sari, will he able to kill the demon before it reaches nearby village? He may not recognized it, yet this alien may look quite familiar to our 21st century culture audience. How do you feel, if our Malay civilization history is as fiction as our films?
The artist wants to explore the value and meaning, and the role of art as truth. This was done by converging pop culture into the Malay folklore. We are taught to believe that the tales are part of history as we were growing up. It was written in our school books. The artist wants to use this series to have dialogues with the public view of Malaya historical tales if elements from modern culture are added into it historical settings. Is the story still as mythical as what you’re seeing?
