MEMULIH (TO HEAL)
In this Open P.O project, Monica will create a customized artwork about home and family. She creates the context of home and family as a form of therapy for the collectors itself and as a heart booster for the stability of personal mental development. “I will create the artwork which is customized with the data that I collect personally from the collector, it’s prioritized on memory, on what should let go off or what should their remember as a tribute to the historical stories of family members. A tribute and honor for our home and own family.”
