Afrizal Malna

Afrizal is concerned with a questioning of language and a bodily engagement with public and private space, things and their connotations and associations. It is through the appearance of everyday objects that Afrizal’s poems emerge as a repository of the cultural meanings of space and things in Indonesia’s everyday modernity.

Afrizal’s poems, through drawing on practices of montage, precise diction and curious grammar, maintain a fine balance between consistency of style and variation in theme and subject which asserts his distinctive poetic voice. These are poems that trace the quickly changing urban trajectory of present day Indonesia.
