Java Independence hosts Invisible Conversations, installation and images by Kong Vollak. “As an artist and a teacher, Vollaks artistic impulse often coincides with an educational tendency. […] Through a collaborative project Jorng Jam (2014 – 2015) Vollak took the opportunity to interview his own family, collect their stories and to develop a deeper understanding of their experiences through his artistic work. This led to two ongoing bodies of work, one with salvaged photographs and another with clay figures, that explore memory, loss and resilience.”
