On March 13th 2020 opens in Singapore at the Objectifs Centre, exhibition by Rony Zakaria Pantura, showing his new long-term project commissioned on a grant from Objectifs. The show will be on display until April 19 2020.
Rony Zakaria journeys from Anyer to Panarukan, down De Grote Postweg (The Great Post Road) encountering, experiencing, collecting. What is today called Jalan Pantai Utara — Pantura for short — was constructed in the early 19th century across five provinces in Java under the direction of Dutch Governor General Herman Willem Daendels, and is a vital transportation artery. The road gives as quickly as it takes, shaping communities it runs through. Zakaria, with and through his photography, follows the people and dimensions of class, ethnicity and religion that inhabit it.
