Enjoying Tjihampelas Zwembad

 

Performance art

I visualize the loss of heritage building “Tjihampelas Bath Center ” as performance art. I make a replication of the building with rainbow cakes at the sloping table. At that time, two anonymous people make a deal `under the table’ in a set of a dining table, as a representative of ‘bribing’ between the decision-maker. However, the cake also slices and circulating through audiences to eat. The act of audiences eating the heritage cake also contribute to a symbol of public ignorance and acceptance about demolishing this heritage, to be replaced by superblock. 

This artwork has become my critics toward the preservation of heritage building which becomes an n phenomenon to a real public. Heritages only see as sweet targets of capitalism.
