Indonesia – “Voyage—Trokomod” is a site-specific installation by Heri Dono
curated by Carla Bianpoen and Restu Imansari Kusumaningrum. The pavilion prompts
a rethinking of the relationship between globalisation and local culture from
historical, social and political points of view. By intertwining history, myth and
legend, Dono provides “an entry point to understand Indonesia’s current position”.
The installation comprises Trokomod, a Trojan horse – a recurrent figure in his work –
in the shape of a Komodo dragon, and a number of flying anthropomorphic traditional
vessels hanging from the ceiling.

Georgia – Nia Mgaloblishvili (also Project Curator), Ia Liparteliani and Sophio
Shevardnadze of Studio Designbureau, have created “Crawling Border” , an immersive
installation exploring the geopolitical landscape of Georgia and Europe. The narrative
makes an analogy to a DNA chain, which exists in its usual environment and remains
unnoticed before it is impacted by external factors. The artists draw attention
to the stealthy process of drawing borders, which affects many people whose personal
tragedy often goes unnoticed.
