UHD Aznjunglizt featuring Taufiq Rahman, Nurhayd Naufal and cinotiUHD
flex banner, 400 x 900 cm, 2022 - 2024

Comissioned by the Lagos Biennale 2024, UHD Aznjunglizt featuring Taufiq Rahman, Nurhayd Naufal and cinotiUHD 2023 engages with the proposed but failed ‘Maphilindo Confederation' (Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia) of 1963 and was first developed as part of ‘To A Faraway Friend: Afro Southeast Asia Project' at Asean Culture House, Busan, in 2022. Inspiration for the work includes Kitsch-men as Tourist by Ludwig Geisz (1960) and ASEAN 2030: Towards A Borderless Economic Community (2014) by the Asian Development Bank Institute. An inquiry into the extraction of technofossils among other things, the artist calls the work a ‘disadvertisement’; the title breaks down to Ultra High Definition (UHD), Azn (a vernacular spelling for Asian), and Junglizt, which is a play on the word jungle and can also refer to inhabitants of the ‘bush’ in inland areas of Southeast Asia.
