"The Echo Of My Echo" (回声回响)
"The Echo Of My Echo" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
The echo of my echo of my echo is my echo. The children of my children of my children are my children. This simple notion keeps together people who have nothing much in common. Benedict Anderson described nations as imagined communities of people who would never know most of their fellow-members, yet they are convinced they are one. On the contrary, there can be communities that share the same memories, experiences and heritage, yet, they are not considered nations. The word Peranakan is derived from the Malay and Indonesian “anak” (child) that means “descendant” regardless of the ethnicity. Peranakans are children of Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Portuguese or Dutch – a sort of mixture of distant cultures, not really belonging specifically to any of them. It’s a sui generis culture that defies the idea of nationalism being spread out across the Malay Archipelago’s nation states, colorfully like butterflies that know no borders. They are what they are. Because no description is needed when you know that a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.
