"Breaking Words"


Arahmaiani asks audience that imagine what is most important idea for you.


Arahmaiani herself wirtes down her most important idea in the word on a dish.
"Allah" in Arabic, She says for her it means Love.



She asks audience to write down their important idea in the word on a dish.




Suddenly she throws the dishes against wall.
