They showed me how to create images,
which divined us.
Wallflowers, soil and water.
of rain drops
please, enlighten me.
A heart of mine told me once
Time was just once a future,
After seconds, minutes, hours,
People eyes and their madness,
depression and self destruction
weird acts and well-planned dramas.
Life lies between present and past,
dreams of reality.
When I think about my self
lights and paths are just side to side.
I’m not here for crossing time,
that’s why I am here.
Note: This is my self experience through my feeling towards the artworks, these words are not linked to any of Artists’ point of view or messages.
BIENNALE JOGJA XIV
Biennale Jogja (BJ) is an international biennial run by Yogyakarta Regional Government and organized by Yayasan Biennale Yogyakarta (YBY). It was first organized in 1988, and this year reached its 14th edition. Starting with 2011, YBY launched the project of Biennale Jogja Equator series (Biennale Equator) with focus on the region of the equator belt. Biennale Jogja assumes the equator as a new perspective which simultaneously opens up to confront the ‘establishment’ as well the conventions towards the organization of such events. Equator represents the starting point to create a common platform to “re-read’” the world.
Curatorial Biennale Jogja
Biennale Jogja XIV Equator #4 will respond to the issue of live uncertainty which has made us less brave to hope as the reality has become increasingly hard to understand.
The main team raised in Biennale Jogja XIV Equator #4 is:
STAGE of HOPELESSNESS
This big narrative invites us to experience a transition from uncertainty towards hope. The narration will present a series of traumatic moments which can be interpreted as aesthetic moments of raising awareness. Nine repertoires will be shown, consisting of three main parts such as Organizing Chaos as the main theme for Festival Equator, Stage of Hopelessness as the main theme for Main Exhibition and Parallel Events, and Managing Hope as the theme for Biennale Forum.
Main exhibition held at Jogja Nasional Musium
2nd Nov – 10th Dec 2017
