Red Note – Part II is a sequel of my previous series – “Red Note”. Still referencing the Malaysian government demolition of houses around Pengerang commencing in September 2014, this series yearns to provide insights leading to the final phase of demolition.
A strange occurrence whereby doors, windows, and rooftops were eradicated and sold by the villagers amidst relocation. The abandoned ruins are empty houses without shelters and covers. I am deeply intrigued by the hollowness of the buildings; void that were once occupied across generations. I embarked on a documentation of this phenomenon, documenting the living room of such houses, in hopes of confronting the physical and more essentially, the cultural impacts of this demolition.
