HERE AND THERE, NOW AND THEN
This is an exhibition of prints, half made this last year, the other half over a century ago. Half were made in Indonesia, the other half in Europe. Those made in Jogja have been printed and editioned by Grafis Minggiran at Langgeng Art Foundation.
I was interested in seeing how artists responded to the collection of old master prints I own, and interested in seeing how they looked placed next to each other at the end of the project. Do we speak the same language? Can we talk to art from the past and from another continent? Do the works from the past talk to us? Artists were invited to choose works from my collection for display in this exhibition. Some chose, and if they didn’t I chose works that seemed to relate to theirs. The selection of old prints also acts as a brief introduction to printmaking in Europe before 1900.
I know there is not a big market for prints in Indonesia —or Southeast Asia generally. This is an attempt to make collectors in the region more aware of the medium —and the skill and inventiveness of the artists who make prints in Jogja. It is hopefully also a way of showing people outside Indonesia the range of work being made here.
This portfolio of twenty-five prints is a fund raiser for artist’s projects and artist’s residencies at Langgeng Art Foundation. All money from sale of the prints will be used only for those purposes.
