Jagongan Wagen Edisi Februari 2018
 "D>S /D<S; Invisible Costs (Part 1)" 
 
 
Jagongan Wagen edisi Februari ini, Padepokan Seni Bagong Kussudiardja (PSBK) mempersembahkan karya baru oleh Forum Aktor Yogya yang disutradarai oleh B. Verry Handayani dengan judul "D>S/ D<S ; Invisible Costs". FAY  merupakan kelompok seni yang mendapat Hibah Seni PSBK sekaligus pembuka rangkaian Jagongan Wagen 2018.
 
Membangun konsensus dalam kehidupan kelompok kini diartikan dengan pilihan terbanyak. Sebagai bagian dari sebuah kelompok, orang sering membuat putusan berdasarkan pandangan mayoritas. Ada waktu dan ketenangan yang luput ketika proses menentukan kebijakan menyangkut nasib seseorang. Era digital menuntut orang bertindak cepat untuk mengurai benar dan baik. Kebersamaan dalam mencapai mufakat seolah tercecer oleh tujuan personal.
 
"D>S /D<S; Invisible Costs (Part 1)" oleh Forum Aktor Yogyakarta (FAY) menggambarkan suasana tersebut. Terinspirasi dari film Twelve Angry Men, FAY mengolah pergulatan watak antar tokoh. Para aktor mengajak kita masuk dalam sudut pandang yang mereka hadirkan. Memberikan ruang bagi kita untuk menemukan ulang ketenangan. Kemudian menyandingkannya dengan putusan yang sudah kita buat dan lakukan.
 
Seniman yang akan tampil dalam pertunjukan teater ini adalah sebagai berikut.
 
Tentang Forum Aktor Yogya

Berdiri sejak tahun 2011, FAY yang selanjutnya digerakkan oleh Verry Handayani, telah melahirkan karya pertunjukan, antara lain : "Biar Kutulis Untukmu Puisi Jelek yang Lain" (Naskah Andre Nur Latif, 2014), "Bertiga Bukan Dara, Menghias Kenyataan Hidup" (2015), "Bank Pasar Rakyat" (2016), "Sulamin Bibir Saya, dong!"

******************************************
 
Opening this year's Jagongan Wagen performance platform series through the February Edition, Padepokan Seni Bagong Kussudiardja (PSBK) is proud to premiere new work by Forum Aktor Yogyakarta (FAY) entitled "D>S /D<S; Invisible Costs", directed by B. Verry Handayani.
 
Today, building consensus in group life is often interpreted in voting-based decision making. As part of a group, people often tend to make decisions based on the views of the majority. Times of composure are often missed in the process of determining policies regarding someone's life and fate because the digital era requires people to make quick responses in considering what is good and right. The process of reaching mutual agreements seem to be scattered due to personal goals.
 
"D> S / D <S; Invisible Costs (Part 1) "by Forum Aktor Yogyakarta (FAY), describes that state of affairs. Inspired by the movie Twelve Angry Men, FAY cultivates the characters' personalities and struggles. The actors will offer their points of views and invite us into it, providing us space to rediscover composure, and to reflect on the decisions we have made.
 
About Forum Aktor Yogya

Established in 2011 and led by Verry Handayani, FAY has produced several performances, some of which are: Let Me Write Another Bad Poem for You" (Script by Andre Nur Latif, 2014), Three (Not) Virgins, Decorate the Realities of Life" (2015), "People's Market Bank" (2016), "Embroider My Lips!" (2017), "Identity Project" (2017). In 2016 and 2017, FAY became an organizing partner with Indonesia Dramatic Reading Festival (IDRF).

*ADEN’S ANCIENT CISTERNS* *Historic Preservation, Water Management & Disaster Avoidance*

*ADEN’S ANCIENT CISTERNS*
*Historic Preservation, Water Management & Disaster Avoidance*

The city of Aden, Yemen is a natural harbor on the Red Sea.  Securing a potable water supply has been an issue throughout the city’s long history.  While they have been modified many times over the centuries, the water tanks in Aden have existed for at least 1500 years.  This feature, known in Arabic as “al-saharaj” is an integral part of the city’s urban fabric and cultural heritage. Although the water from the tanks is not considered potable by modern standards, it is a potentially critical resource in a city with no natural supply of fresh water.  Unfortunately, underdevelopment and chronic water shortages render the tanks the only water source in times of crisis. The water has been used in emergencies despite its poor quality.  The pollution of the water is exacerbated by the deteriorated condition of the tanks and the mismanagement of the watershed area.  Planning issues that adversely affect the historic fabric of the water cisterns have also negatively impacted water collection, public health and safety.  Mismanagement of the water system has encouraged the spread of water borne disease and flooding.  These flood events have destroyed property and resulted in the loss of human life. A condition assessment of the water collection system for the purposes of historic preservation was performed in 2007.  The researcher discovered, however, that problems regarding al-saharaj’s historic integrity could not be separated from broader issues of water management.  The preservation of historic fabric had to be addressed in conjunction with water management issues.

Tentang pameran

(IN)MATERIAL TRUTH

“Seni yang dapat menjadi pintu masuk kedalam kehidupan spiritualitas adalah seni yang berhasil menurut saya. Pengalaman estetis dalam seni (karya seni) dan ritual (proses berkarya) menciptakan pengalaman spiritual yang merupakan pengalaman bertemu, bersatu atau melebur dengan Tuhan. Seni berkapasitas untuk membuka jalan pada transendensi. “ Restu Taufik Akbar , Jurnal pengantar Tugas Akhir , 2014.


Karya-karya Restu Taufik Akbar (lahir di Bandung , tahun 1990) merupakan bentuk dari gabungan antara pengalaman berinteraksi dengan alam terutama dengan lansekap hutan,  pemahaman batiniah serta penjelajahan dengan material artistik; cat, kuas dan permukaan materi selain kanvas. Menghasilkan gubahan hutan / alam menjadi bentuk berwatak abstrak dengan penerapan warna-warni yang atraktif, cenderung cerah sekaligus mengundang persepsi kepada banyak hal. Bentuk atau format yang beragam yang dihasilkan dari perilaku terhadap watak logam menjadikan “lukisan” karya Restu lebih ekstensif mengarah kepada bentuk patung (sculptural) dan kemudian instalatif. Restu menjelajah citra abstrak yang referensial melalui pengalaman organic dan pencerapan bathin yang berkelindan melalui pengolahan materi : pelat logam dan campuran cat enamel industrial dan minyak, melalui watak material seperti persoalan kadar kecairan atau lelehan dan aspek pantulan permukaan. 

Lebih jauh karya-karya Restu menjadi suatu wahana pencarian hal yang lebih spiritual yang tak terlihat atau tak terjelaskan . Ia pernah mengungkapkan dalam pengantar tulisan tugas akhirnya (2014) , bahwa bentuk abstrak yang merespon hutan yang dibentuk realis menjadi bahasa untuk mengungkapkan tentang apa yang ia pahami, yaitu ada realitas yang tidak terlihat diantara realitas yang terlihat dan juga sebagai pembangun suasana yang ingin dibangun.

Karya –karya Restu seperti meningatkan kepada pemikiran yang pernah ditulis (Alm) Sanento Yuliman menyangkut fase seni lukis (dan patung) abstrak dalam perkembangan seni rupa modern di Indonesia , bahwa seni rupa abstrak dan abstraksi sempat menjadi corak arus utama, terutama di Bandung, Yogyakarta dan Jakarta pada periode waktu 1970-80an. Khususnya terkait dengan pemikiran dalam risalah Sanento Yuliman tentang pengantar Seni Lukis Abstrak, dimana  potensi menggali estetik abstrak yang bersumber dari kehidupan sekitar, seperti alam atau buatan manusia itu sendiri yang tak pernah surut.  Memang -menurut Sanento- untuk memahaminya kita harus melibatkan aspek fisiologis dan psikologis, dalam menggali makna dari karya-karya abstrak seperti ini.

Merujuk pada tesis Sanento Yuliman bahwa kecenderung kemunculan seni rupa Abstrak di Indonesia, menjadi kecenderungan praktek seni rupa modern di tahun 1970-an atau pada masa disebutnya perkembangan fase ketiga, dimana perkembangan seni abstrak menunjukan keberagaman ciri. Mulai abstrak lirisisme yang didasari emosi atau ungkapan pada perasaan tertentu, hingga karya – karya abstrak dengan corak yang lebih matematis dan rasional (atau geometris, maupun yang bersifat formalis. Sesuai dengan premisnya bahwa ada kemungkinan bahwa estetika abstrak berhubungan dengan apa yang ada disekitar kita. “ Bumi dilihat dari kapal udara, benda dilihat dari dekat (permukaan tanah, batu, dsb) atau perhatian pada objek, benda yang dilihat secara mikroskopik. Menyodorkan kepada kita kekayaan rupa yang aneka ragam.”

Maka saat ini mungkinkah corak-corak abstrak(si) bisa kembali menjadi praktek yang dominan di Indonesia. Mungkin menarik bila diamati bahwa sebagian perupa kontemporer dalam kekaryaannya juga bersinggungan menuju citra yang bersifat abstrak. Karya –karya Restu menjadi suatu telaah dan permenungan tentang suatu gagasan-gagasan seni rupa abstrak pasca perkembangan fase ketiga sejarah seni rupa di Indonesia atau dalam praktik seni rupa kontemporer sekarang. Sekalipun dalam suatu konsep yang labil, tetapi menawarkan kemungkinan-kemungkinan pada suatu estetika abstrak yang tak terduga.

"C", Marco Cassani's solo exhibition at Honold Fine Art, Bali, Indonesia.

"C", Marco Cassani's solo exhibition at Honold Fine Art, Bali, Indonesia.


PRESS RELEASE
www.honoldfineart.com

Honold Fine Art is pleased to present C, the fourth pop up show of HFA in
Ubud, Bali and the first solo exhibition with the gallery of Italian born
Bali based artist Marco Cassani on view from 8–22 February 2018 at the
beautiful back wing of Tonyraka Art Gallery in Bali.

The title of the exhibition ‘C’ refers to the third letter in the Latin
alphabet and introduces abbecedario, (Alphabet Book), a projected
monograph, which will analyze Cassani’s artistic practice.

Besides Cassani, ‘C’ stands for column, currency, coin and credibility,
four words tightly connected by the concept of the creation of value, a
red thread in the practice of Cassani, as demonstrate the projects
Indisciplinato (Undisciplined) and The Alphabet of Money (Huruf Uang).

The exhibition presents an installation comprised of more than six
thousand foreign and Indonesian coins, stacked on top of each other to
form five individual columns. Each column differs from the others in
physical aspects like height, weight and texture as well as the symbolic
and economic value they represent.

Two individual columns forming the work Inseparable Two (Londo Blonyo)
2015–2016, refer to the wages of workers, whom the artist encountered in
Yogyakarta. They consist of 1000 Indonesian Rp. 100 coins, with an
economic value of Rp. 100.000 and of 1450 Indonesian Rp. 1.000 coins, with
an economic value of Rp. 1.450.000 representing the daily and monthly wage
for a Javanese married couple of workers in Java, Indonesia respectively.

Fountain ‘Gunung Kawi’ (2017), Fountain ‘Monkey Forest’ (2017) and
Fountain ‘Negari’ (2018) all have a different origin. For two years the
artist explored three fountains located in Balinese temples and in a
Balinese coffee plantation, collecting the coins that tourists and locals
had thrown into the water, while making a wish. Their economic values are
unknown because many of the coins have corroded over time rendering the
getting to know their provenance and actual value impossible.

In the course of creating a visual epitome for the accumulation of money,
the artist is actually destroying the coins’ initial monetary value. As an
artwork, however, the object will be valued according to a new system of
reference; that of contemporary art. Marco Cassani’s work reflects on our
economic system; in particular on the precarious state of inter human
agreement and the subtle distinction between trading and economy (the
creation of value), which is the very base of cultural production.

The exhibition is hosted by Tonyraka Art Gallery, one of the most
established commercial art galleries in Bali and will be open everyday
from 9 AM to 5 PM.

    For over a year Vanessa Van Houten has been working on a new body of work in her second book called
    Here*Now, a photography portrait series about inner beauty of Indonesians. In a time where many talk about
    diversity and difference, she was keen to examine what binds us together. Inside her simple studio in Jakarta,
    she photographed over 50 Indonesians – women, men, warias (cross-dressers, transsexuals and transgenders) 
    aged between 20 and 80 years old, which are passionate chefs and baristas, young entrepreneurs, accomplished
    athletes, mothers, fathers, loved social influencers, dancers, beautiful yogis, makeup artists, sex workers, famous
    musicians, popular artists and talented fashion designers. Each person she photographed twice; once in their
    favourite clothes and once almost bare in a white cloth which was made especially for this project, by Chitra Subyakto,
    the creative soul of Indonesian fashion and textile house Sejauh Mata Memandang. These sessions and the
    photographs, 
    that resulted provide a glimpse into the lives of the people we are surrounded by. In the book Here*Now 39 people are
    chosen: featuring Ananda Sukarlan, Kaka Slank, Ridho Slank, Ivanka Slank, Jay Subiyakto, Tri Handoko,  Reti Ragil,
    Poppy
    Sovia, Rama Dauhan, Alexander Siregar, Sari Kusumaningrum, Triyaningsih and Ayla Dimitri.


    Curated by Oscar Motuloh and Jay Subiyakto, the exhibition FREE FALL is a series of photographs from the previous show RAW, the new series Here*Now, a video installation and a series of workshop.
