installing panel nomor 01 dan 03 DCDNC/DCDNT

Pada pameran indonesia disjuction yang telah saya post sebelumnya, saya memamerkan 2 panel. keduanya kemudian menjadi koleksi Ibu. Susi Johnston dan Ibu. valentina. Kedua beliau tinggal di bali. Ibu Valentina membeli karya #01, Ibu Susi membeli karya #03 . karya tersebut pada saat pameran saya presentasikan dengan membuat instalasi mural di tembok tempat menggantung karya, yang kemudian akan saya buat di rumah kedua beliau. bulan maret 2011, akhirnya saya berkesempatan menginstal dua karya ini di rumah beliau-beliau di bali, sekaligus melakukan pameran tunggal saya, URGNT SLNC URGNT SNDS di deus ex machina dan tour kecil jenny yang akan saya ceritakan di postingan berikutnya.

In the exhibition Indonesian Disjunction discussed in a previous post, I showcased two panels from the DCDNC/DCDNT series. Both later went into the collections of women; Susi Johnston and Valentina Audrito, both of them living in Bali. Valentina bought No. 1 and Susi bought No. 3. When these paintings were in the Indonesian Disjunction show, I was invited to extend my work beyond the canvas and onto the walls. I painted a kind of mural around each piece, then Susi and Valentina asked me to come and do the same for the paintings in their new homes. In March 2011, I finally had the opportunity to do this, as well as playing a mini-tour with my band Jenny (will tell about that in next post), and a solo exhibition at the same time. The exhibition, URGNT SLNC | URGENT SNDS is still up at Deus Ex Machina, (Canggu, Bali).
saya dan dieto (asisten) mulai mengerjakan instalasi di tembok ruang tidur tamu rumah Ibu susi. ruang tamunya kemudian berisi kata bunuh bunuh bunuh kill kill bunuh..haha. Ibu susi bilang, ini sengaja, biar tamunya ga betah-betah bgt nginap di rumah :))
Dieto (assistant) and I begin work on my installation on the wall of a guest bedroom at Susi's house. A sleeping room with the words KILL KILL KILL . . . ha ha. Susi joked that this will have an extra benefit, by keeping houseguests from overstaying their welcome! :)
ibu susi menunggui kami dari siang sampai malam. sambil minum bir, merokok mild seven, nonton DVD factory girl, easy ride, maen-maen sama 3 kucing kecilnya, bercerita apa saja.
Susi hung out with us from mid-day through the night, drinking beer, smoking Mild Sevens, putting on DVDs (Factory Girl, Easy Rider), playing with her three little cats, and we talked for hours about anything and everything.
instalasi selesai, foto-foto dulu :). terimakasih rekam gambarnya moks (moks timofeevic)
The installation is complete, now it's time for snapshots! Haha. Thanks, Moks, for photo-documentation (Moks Timofeevic).
3 hari setelah pembukaan pameran URGNTSLNC URGNTSNDS, saya menginstal panel #01 di rumah Ibu valentina, di daerah canggu, bali. rumah yang sangat artistik, dan bagus sekali arsitekturnya. tidak terlalu kaget kemudian, karena Ibu Valentina dan Pak Abi (suami Ibu Valentina) adalah Arsitek dan desainer, beliau menjalankan bisnis arsitek di bali, dan berkantor di satu ruangan terpisah depan rumah beliau. halaman berpohon besar dan hijau, ruangan terbuka bermandi cahaya, pernik-pernik interior yang unik (ada satu seri karya interior dengan tema visual: telur, yang sangat unik, bahkan saya di beri lampu meja dari fiberglass berbentuk separuh telur), karya rupa tergantung di setiap tembok ruangan (yang saya ingat, ada karya dari farhansiki dan keith harring, dan kemudian karya saya :). Ibu susi bilang, rumah ini pernah masuk di majalah arsitek. banyak yang bisa saya ceritakan dari rumah ini dan perjumpaan saya dengan Ibu valentina dan Pak Abi yang mungkin akan saya ceritakan di postingan lain. sayang sekali juga saya tidak membawa kamera pocket saya untuk merekam proses installing, tapi Pak abi merekam dengan kamera beliau, mungkin saya bisa dapatkan hasilnya juga nanti.

sehari sebelumnya, saya menginstal panel #03 di rumah Ibu Susi. beliaulah juga yang menginisiasi pameran tunggal saya di deus. Ibu susi, sosok yang pasti akan saya tulis dalam postingan lain. sebagai gambaran awal, ibu ini adalah wanita yang sudah berumur lebih dari separo abad, sudah tinggal di bali selama 15 tahun lebih, Phd art history, penulis, menjalankan perusahaan tekstil dan gallery benda seni dan antik asia bernama macan tidur, dan punya masa muda dengan cerita-cerita yang sangat mencengangkan saya. saya akan ceritakan nanti. yang pasti, pertemuan saya dengan ibu susi adalah salah satu momen penting dalam hidup saya. ya..ya.. saya pasti akan ceritakan nanti, dalam cerita yang panjang :). yak, rumah Ibu susi adalah rumah bagus, bagus sekali, modern minimalis, putih, letaknya di pinggiran canggu yang masih sepi dan tenang, saat sore hari di depan rumah di pakai untuk jalur jogging dan bersepeda, melintas sawah-sawah di jalan menuju pantai. setelah masuk pintu utama, adalah ruang luas terbuka dengan beberapa benda seni dan antik dari berbagai kebudayaan di indonesia. ada kayu peti mati raja, tangga bambu, alat tenun tradisional, ujung atap masjid kuno, bejana tembaga dan masih banyak lagi yang di tata apik di ruangan yang berjejer dengan dapur dan ruang kerja pak Bruno (suami ibu susi). saya menginstal panel #03 di kamar tamu yang letaknya di lantai 2.

Three days after the opening of the exhibition, URGNT SLNC | URGNT SNDS, I installed Panel No. 1 at Valentina's house, in the Canggu area. The house is really artistic, with great architecture. Not surprising, because Valentina is an architect and Abhi (her husband) is a designer, and they run an architecture practice in Bali with offices in a separate pavilion in front of the house, which itself is filled with light, mostly open spaces, scattered with their unusual artworks and objects with visual themes. There's even a series of egg-themed furniture and lighting, really out-there stuff (designed by Valentina - - Abhi actually gave me an egg table lamp to take home), and hanging on all the walls are works of art (I recall a Farhan Siki, a Keith Haring - - and now my work!). Susi told me the house has been featured in design magazines. There's so much I could say about the house and my encounter with Abhi and Valentina, maybe in another post. I forgot to bring my pocket camera to record the process of installation, but Abhi recorded it all with his camera, maybe I can get the results later and share them.


The day before, I installed Panel No. 3 at Susi's. She was the one who actually initiated my solo exhibition at Deus. Susi is a real character, who I will surely write more about in another post. For starters, she's been around for more than half a century, lived in Bali for over 15 years, has a graduate degree in art history, writes, runs a textiles business and a gallery of art and antiques called Macan Tidur (the sleeping tiger), and has thousands of interesting stories from her "wasted youth" that are really amazing to me. More about that later. Meeting Susi has definitely been one of those important moments in my life. Yeah yeah, I'll definitely tell you later, it's a long story. :) Bit of background here, Susi's house is actually pretty cool, modern, minimalist, white, located on the outskirts of Canggu where it's still quiet and peaceful. In the afternoon people pass on bicycles, others jogging, down the lane in front, which runs through rice paddies, then heads down toward the beach. When you enter the main door of the house, you're in a vast open space with a selection of objects of art and antiques from various cultures of Indoneisa; there's a wood panel from a raja's coffin, a primitive bamboo ladder, old weaving tools, the roof finial from an ancient wood mosque, bronze vessels, and many other objects, carefully and sparsely arranged. Adjacent to this space are the kitchen and the home office of Bruno (Susi's husband). I installed Panel No. 3 in a guest room on the second floor.
