たけくらべ (Takekurabe) translates racial history between Indonesia and Japan by comparison of political narratives and influences from popular culture. 
This project is a reconstruction of 1990s mangaka Suzue Miuchi's adaptation of たけくらべ, an 1895 Japanese novella by Higuchi Ichiyō. The work in its entirity hints of popular elements from the blatant visual references of Yayoi Kusama to subtle easter eggs relevances to works of Wei-Te Sheng, Katy Perry, Angki Purbandono and Hatsune Miku as well as an infamous Indonesian urban legend of Kolor Ijo.  
Within social context, the installation and performance works enquire the evolution of racial trauma through generations of political shift and the development popular culture.
