What conversations are happening on the margins right now? What do marginalised voices say? It seemed like the right questions to ask for this six-month project: there is interest in the subject matter, it is relevant, and it felt like a project that could address something of significance within the stipulated time.
Still, three days away from the Merata Suara’s exhibition opening in Petaling Jaya on Feb 10, there remains much to be done. But curator Suzy Sulaiman is the epitome of calmness; this is not unprecedented and not unexpected. Especially in a case like Merata Suara where the conversation never quite ends.
