The exhibition pays homage to the amorphous anting-anting as shaped and constructed by different artists and contexts. It is inevitable for art that speaks about anting-anting to become these amulets themselves. The bringing together of these works are an ouroboric reminder of where we place our intentions, concentrate power, and how we react in the face of strong forces. These works do not only speak, appropriate, and reference the anting-anting, but embody them as brought in as objects rife with history, ready and inviting towards energies.
