During the residency at Cemeti Art House, Fitri Setyaningsih, Reiko Fukamachi and Katia Engel developed a series of works, inspired by the philosophical thoughts of Ki Ageng Suryomentaram about Mulur Mungkret. The three artists approached the idea of Mulur Mungkret from different viewpoints and angles in order to find their own interpretations.
