Melati Suryodarmo The Promise (2002) 3 hours performance
This 3-hour performance work draws on the Indonesian saying “makan hati” (to swallow your own pain) and communicates a sense of pain and loss the artist associates with her mother’s long-term battle with cancer, while alluding to a greater, universal female experience.
