Chonteng (which translates as doodle in English) is a drawing installation that explores the idea of line – and mark – making based loosely on the method of automatic drawing. It documents the stream of iconography and creatures from the consciousness of the artist.
The concept was first explored in previous exhibitions entitled Labyrinth of Things I and II which were presented at Coda Culture and Cake Theatre’s Running with Strippers, respectively. The alternative drawing projects explored the transformation of gesture and forms of various stimuli, materialising as abstracted forms, and investigating anthropomorphic figures.
For the third and final presentation of the trilogy, Teater Ekamatra’s Greymatter is currently being transformed into a drawing installation bringing audiences into another dimension. A meditative experience like how one would encounter a cave with drawings of a Neanderthal.
