About the show

Introduction
NAFAS RESIDENSI SHOWCASE CYCLE TWO: HYDRO-DINAMIC
Rusnoto Susanto

Sebuah kerja budaya sesungguhnya menganut sistem kerja hydro-dynamic dalam berbagai keadaan, layaknya dinamika air yang terus menerus bergerak, menekan, dan menerobos semua ruang-ruang melalui potensi energi yang tak dapat diperkirakan. Pameran Nafas Residensi Showcase Cycle Two: HYDRO-DYNAMIC merupakan implikasi spirit atas penggalian budaya serta nilai kearifan lokal. Penggalian budaya melalui kesadaran nilai kearifan lokal pada masing-masing negeri tentu saja sebagai nilai pokok menggerakkan berbagai arus budaya asing sebagai komponen penyumbang dalam praktik akulturasi. Sebuah praktik dimana arus-arus budaya dari berbagai negeri yang masuk dan melebur ke dalam berbagai aktivitas masyarakat dalam semangat multikulturalisme. Melalui program cultural exchange yang sering dilakukan dengan program pertukaran seniman antara dua negara itu untuk memperkenalkan nilai-nilai jenius sebagai potensi budaya masing-masing dan mempromosikan potensi masyarakatnya. Dalam pameran ini kita bisa saksikan bagaimana mereka berinteraksi dengan budaya yang diserap selama mereka melakukan residensi. Berbagai kecenderungan yang sama ditemui baik perilaku masyarakat, budaya, gaya hidup, maupun spirit di tempat yang baru, mengingat di dua negara (Indonesia dan Malaysia) itu sesungguhnya memiliki kemiripan secara kultural maupun perubahan budaya dalam konteks budaya urban.

Nafas Residensi berdiri pada Januari 2012, dengan visi Asia tanpa batas yang didalamnya orang bebas merayakan keragaman budaya tak terbatas dan kekayaan kemanusiaan melalui ekspresi artistik. Program Nafas Residensi dalam tahun pertama berfokus pada relasi antara Indonesia dan Malaysia, dengan seniman dari berbagai media, usia dan genre yang dipilih untuk berkolaborasi dan menemukan suara yang sama.

Pada periode pertama 2012, Nafas Residensi memfasilitasi empat seniman Malaysia dan dua seniman Indonesia di Yogyakarta, dengan masa residensi yang bervariasi, masing-masing antara satu, tiga dan enam bulan. Sedangkan dalam periode ke dua 2012, enam seniman berikutnya turut berpartisipasi. Dua diantaranya, satu seniman dan satu kurator Indonesia, dikirim ke Malaysia untuk menjalani program residensi bekerja sama dengan Museum dan Galeri Tuanku Fauziah, Universiti Sains Malaysia. Di kedua periode, para peserta menjalani program pengenalan untuk menyesuaikan diri dengan medan seni dari negara tuan rumah sebelum mereka memulai penemuan mereka sendiri. Menjelang akhir residensi, semua seniman diminta untuk berbagi pengalaman mereka kepada apresiator.

Saat ini Nafas Residensi telah menuntaskan program tahun 2012. Apa yang telah kami alami adalah penegasan bahwa seni memiliki kemampuan untuk membawa budaya dan masyarakat secara bersama. Kami telah menyaksikan transformasi ide, percikan spontanitas, kebahagiaan dan yang paling penting, berbagi cerita dan inspirasi dari karya seni mereka serta persahabatan yang terbentuk setelahnya. Ini adalah benih masa depan. Ini adalah imbalan. Ini adalah perayaan.

The work of culture actually follows the principle of hydro-dynamic. It constantly moves, pushes and penetrates all space through its unpredictable force. The exhibition of Nafa’s Residensi Showcase Cycle Two 2012 manifests the spirit of cultural exchange and local wisdom exploration in empowering the concept of Hydro-Dynamic. Exploration of culture through the awareness of local wisdom stirs the wave of foreign culture entering one country and contributes to the practice of acculturation. It is a practice where the flow of culture from different parts of the world collides with the life of the people in the spirit of multiculturalism. Cultural conversation makes possible through exchange programs involving artists from different countries promotes values and local genius as cultural potential of the community in each country. In this exhibition we can find the artists residency often find similarities in terms of culture, behavior, lifestyle and spirit in both places as the two countries (Indonesia and Malaysia) are experiencing somewhat parallel changes in the context of urban culture.

Established in January 2012, Nafa’s Residensi was founded on a vision of a borderless Asia where people celebrate freely the boundless cultural diversity and richness of humanity through artistic expression. The program in the first year focuses between Indonesia and Malaysia, where a cross-section of artists of varying mediums, age and genre were selected to collaborate and discover a common voice.

In Cycle One 2012, the residency housed four Malaysian and two Indonesian artist in Yogyakarta, whom had spent varying period – each between one, three and six months in the residency program. In Cycle Two 2012, six new artists participated, with an Indonesian artist and an Indonesian curator being sent to Malaysia to undergo their residency program in collaboration with Museum and Galeri Tuanku Fauziah, Universiti Sains Malaysia. In both, the participants underwent a familiarization program to acclimatize themselves to the art-scene of the host country before they embark on their own discovery. Towards the end of their residency stints, all artists are required to share their experiences which normally take place before appreciators.

Nafa’s Residensi has now completed the 2012 cycle. What we have experienced, was the affirmation that, Art has the ability to bring cultures and societies together. We have witnessed the transformation of ideas, sparks of spontaneity, joys of discovery and most importantly, the sharing of stories and inspirations from their artwork and the friendship that was formed thereafter. This is the seed of the future. This is the reward. This is the celebration.
