Prihatmoko Moki

Prihatmoko Moki

Prihatmoko Moki is a print & silk-screen artist and one of the founders of the Krack! Studio (2012), a studio and gallery focusing on printmaking in Yogyakarta. Other founders are Rudi Hermawan, Sukma Smitha and Australian artist Malcolm Smith. In the same year he was also one of the organisers of LELAGU, an annual art event combining acoustic music and responses with live drawing in Kedai Kebun Gallery, Yogyakarta.

Although he does make solitary prints, drawings, theatre performance and murals, most of his works are series of comic strip silk-screen prints of certain situations. A satirical story telling not always necessarily as criticism but to shine light to the complexity of the matters.

In his works, Moki refers to historical events and myths to approach the issues. He depicts distinctive figures identified from footmen, soldiers to courtiers of the Jogja Kraton (the sultan’s palace) and people wearing everyday’s clothes looking like peasants, placed in a contemporary scene mixed with traditional or symbolic attributes from the glorious past. The whole scene is a metaphor of the hierarchical and sometimes strained relationship between the ruler(s) or people in power and the regular people.

Moki has participated in numerous group national and international exhibitions. He has also been an long and active member of multidisciplinary PUNKASILA art project, initiated by Danius Kesminas, which has performed in Indonesia, Australia, Lithuania and Cuba.

Olexandr Pinchuk

Olexandr Pinchuk

Since 2013, Olexandr Pinchuk has been engaged in object art and is a teacher and speaker for students in the field of interior and object design. Participant of contemporary art exhibitions in Moscow, Russia and Kharkov, Ukraine. Collaborates with contemporary collection art galleries in New York, Brussels, Amsterdam and Kyiv.

Pinchuk creates art objects and multimedia installations. All works are aimed at the search and identification of mental and cultural characteristics, the search for answers to questions of human existence and society. For him, the creation of an object is a special story, a story without words. A conversation through an object is an attempt to reach the viewer through emotions, feelings, images.

Pinchuk directs the creation of the short animated film “The Big Vault” based on the poem by Taras Shevchenko. The poem is a philosophical and mystical story about life and death, past, present and future.

Annemarieke van Peppen

Annemarieke van Peppen

Annemarieke van Peppen’s art is characterised by her continous evaluation of the impact of social media on our lives, that shape and challenge our perception of the world in real. She is particularly interested to reveal the beauty of imperfect human beings. Through photography and repetition, she creates images assembled as a collage. Every piece of the image or the photograph printed on pieces of paper in different size, textures and colours. Those pieces of paper have been in turn made for different purpose than photo paper, like newspaper or joss paper (coloured paper used as offerings, common in Chinese culture).

For her recent project THE HERO IN YOU, exhibited at the Bruijs shipyard, Bergen op Zoom, Van Peppen photographed Ukrainian women refugees to help them cope with their traumatic experiences. The women are seen wearing their self-made amulets and clothes as reminder for the mother country they have been forced to leave. It was also an art collaboration project of Van Peppen with 4 other Ukrainian artists.

The exhibition In Infinity – The End, Annemarieke van Peppen will show her newest works, greatly inspired by the Trimurti philosophy of Balinese Hindu. The Trimurti (from Sanskrit) are the trinity of supreme divinity in Hinduism, in which the cosmic functions of creation, maintenance, and destruction are personified as a triad of deities. Typically, the designations are that of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer. The effect of this holy trinity is the philosophy embracing the concept that everything happens in one’s life is necessary to strike the balance and to complete the infinite circle of lives.

Van Peppen is a socially engaged artist, involved in several charitable projects in The Netherlands and Indonesia.

Agung Kurniawan

Agung Kurniawan

Agung Kurniawan is one of the most important contemporary artists of Indonesia. He is an artist who works with a variety of media. Agung Kurniawan has developed his artistic work within the field of concrete socio-cultural activism; he believes an artist has more and larger social responsibilities than simply producing artistic work. His traditional medium is drawing, but lately he works actively with performance art and videography. Although he works with performance art, he refuses to be called as a performer, and preferred to call himself as the director of the crowds in stead. Both as a studio artist and an art activist, he takes up clear positions and his approach often leads him either down to street level or to intervening in bureaucratic structures.

Agung Kurniawan’s work is reputed to be fairly “coarse” due to themes of violence, controversial politics and taboo subjects. The artist started out with book illustrations, drawings and comics, which offered a harsh, often satirical critique of Indonesian society at that time. With his drawing Happy Victim (1996), depicting people hanging upside down while laughing cheerfully, he won a 1996 Philip Morris Art Award and gained international recognition.

His famous trellis works series started in 2006. The series was inspired by an old family photo album from 1974, consisting of a photo diary of the artist’s mother during the last days of her dying father. Agung tried to recreate the personal as well collective memories by working the panels as a kind of comic book where the trellises are the contours of the figures and the shadows cast the blurred memory.

Agung Kurniawan co-founded “Indonesian Visual Art Archive” (IVAA) and co-owner of Kedai Kebun Forum (KKF) in Yogyakarta. His works are to be found worldwide mostly in museums e.g. Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven, The Netherlands), Singapore Art Museum, as well as in private collection. His recent works include his performance in The Netherlands “Remember Day Parade and after”, during the so-called transHISTORY (Arnhem June 2016) and his video art during the Europalia Festival 2017 (Paleis voor Schone Kunsten / BOZAR / Centre for Fine Art Brussels, Belgium).

Artist’s Statement 2015 (in Bahasa Indonesia, freely translated)

– Tidak ada yang lebih berharga dari seni, kalau ada itupun pasti palsu (Nothing is more truthful than art, if there is any, then it is false)
– Cinta itu sementara, kesepian itu abadi (Love is temporary, Loneliness is forever)
– Kemiskinan adalah ibu tiri seni kontemporer (Poverty is the stepmother of contemporary art)
