Ruangrupa | Toko Pura-pura


Asia Art Archive

Asia Art Archive
Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Responding to AAA's invitation, ruangrupa stages a "quasi-shop" with old and new archives: a transactional space where knowledge and ideas are exchanged through collaborations between Jakarta and Hong Kong-based artists, musicians, designers, and cultural initiatives. The name Toko Pura-Pura can be read as a pun on toko rupa-rupa or "assorted shop," where many Indonesian domestic workers in Hong Kong meet most of their daily needs. The shop also serves as an experimental space to imagine what happens when ruangrupa's sensibilities are applied to Hong Kong with AAA as an entry point.
