Dwi Asrul Fajar
A Stream Under The Table

In 2016, Human Rights Watch (HRW) published a 74-page report Living in Hell: Abuses against People with Psychosocial Disabilities in Indonesia, on how people with mental illnesses in Indonesia are treated. The report found that people with mental health conditions often end up chained or locked up without their consent because of stigma and the absence of adequate community-based support services or mental health care.

This project is to try to remove the stigma of mental illness and to move away from how it is commonly portrayed in the media. A Stream Under The Table is about a sense of coming back to oneself, and to understand the complicated mental state of people who have been diagnosed as schizophrenic, bipolar, depressed or suffering from borderline personality disorder.
