Watch Delfina Foundation associate artist Khairani Barokka present her residency project Regna, exploring decolonisation, disability, and visual cultures.

Regna, the Latin word for ‘kingdom’, is a series of digital collages and an interlinked creative nonfiction book that Khairani developed during her time as a UK associate artist at Delfina Foundation.

Exploring decolonisation, disability, and visual cultures, the project is a response to artefacts from the Indonesian archipelago that can be found in the UK, including art stolen during the 1811-1816 British interregnum rule of Indonesia. Leading out from this Khairani will share her research into how the UK and Indonesia ‘collect’ today, through the exploitation inherent in colonial capitalism.

The presentation is followed by a Q&A moderated by Delfina Foundation Associate Curator Rose Lejeune.

This event took place online on 9 December 2021 formed part of the public programme of Delfina Foundation’s Collecting as Practice autumn season 2021.
