Membingkai Ingatan, Lipatan Waktu, dan Praktik yang Menubuh sebagai Arsip

Dari sudut pandang internal tim Cemeti, sebARSIP yang diinisiasi oleh Manshur Zikri ( Kurator-Manajer Artistik Cemeti) bekerja sebagai provokasi bagi tiap-tiap individu tim Cemeti untuk membentuk kebiasaan kritis dalam mempelajari sejarah ruang yang kami kelola beserta konteks sosial politiknya melalui arsip. Hal ini sejalan dengan semangat kami untuk menjadikan Cemeti bukan sekedar tempat kerja tetapi ruang tumbuh bersama. Di dalam dinamika kerja Cemeti yang tak tampak dari luar, tantangan utama adalah bagaimana individu-individu yang menjadi organ tubuh organisasi ini tidak sekedar berfungsi mekanik layaknya mesin manajerial kesenian. Namun, masing-masing dari kami harus sepenuhnya menyadari apa yang tengah kami kerjakan baik ditingkat praksis maupun konseptual, memahami di wilayah wacana macam apa kerja perngorganisasian ini beroperasi, dan tujuan apa yang tengah kita perjuangkan bersama. Dengan membongkar dan membaca kembali arsip kegiatan Cemeti, kami dapat menapaki pemahaman atas pergulatan masa lampau; belajar dari kesuksesan, tantangan, kegagalan; serta mengelaborasi pengetahuan dari arsip tersebut untuk memperkuat strategi praktik kerja kuratorial dan tata kelola saat ini dan di masa depan.

Gazing into Gapura Buwana: An Artistic Reflection on Gegerboyo’s Formal Experiment

The “non-systemic” drawing workflow that has been implemented by Gegerboyo is, in fact, an attempt to go beyond the boundaries of the consecutive system. As we can see in this exhibition, titled Gapura Buwana, the visual tsunami on Gegerboyo’s walls is fragmental instead of sequential—the fragments of the images interrupt one another, resulting in a visual solidity.

Gapura Buwana

Gapura Buwana exhibits Gegerboyo’s visual artworks, most of which are drawn on the walls of the gallery. The rest of them are printed and drawn on transparent fabrics that are hung in different positions at a certain distance from the wall. In order to encourage new interpretations of Gegerboyo’s artistic practice, this exhibition highlights their method, which, according to them, is carried out in a “non-systemic” way. This refers to organically drawing, unrestrained by any rigid criterion in terms of visual composition or narrative systems.

Mediated Resource Migration; Constructed Cultural Biotope

The issue that forms the basis of the artistic practices of Elia Nurvista and Youngho Lee, through which they attempt to draw connecting threads in this exhibition, is an enthusiasm for representing the phenomena of global migration of resources. They have investigated a number of these sources as historical issues, while others have been collected from contemporary encounters.

Reconstructed Biotope

Elia Nurvista and Youngho Lee’s artistic practices are marked by an enthusiasm for representing the global migration of resources. Their practices show a striking combination of “expository tendencies” and “poetic aspirations” in composing political statements about cross-geographical events and phenomena. They utilise the diverse content that is dispersed across the information wilderness, which is increasingly formed from arbitrary sources in today’s era of technology.
