ARTJOG provides a space for a presentation of interdisciplinary art projects, a collaborative result of (an individual or a group of) artists with (an individual or a group of) practitioners of other fields, who would especially respond the theme of Arts in Common: common|space.
Special Project | HandiwirmanSpecial Project | Handiwirman
This artist, who was born in Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, graduated from Department of Crafts, Indonesian Institute of the Arts, Yogyakarta. As an artist, Handiwirman often presents objects that we consider unimportant most of the times—and even we think of them as garbage—as an object of art which has a different meaning.
Some of his works as if use particular approach that explores the realm of object. Found objects, like rubber band, hair, wire, and plastic that have been wasted and useless, find a new life in his works. Handiwirman, as if, knows a life in unimportant objects around us and let them (those objects) compose their own story when his works meet the public.
For ARTJOG, Handiwirman prepared a massive works in the façade area of Jogja National Museum. That works would be placed in 4 meters hole with a diameter around 6 meters, and it soars up to the ceiling of the building. This works would offer a different art experience to the public.Special Project | Riri RizaSpecial Project | Riri Riza
As a filmmaker, Riri Riza doesn’t want to stop exploring in his works. The film, as a medium of art, also has other elements that support it. The richness of art elements in the medium of film is what he offers in his works. He would present the film in an unusual way.
Some installations of sculpture of seated body from Marapu tradition would be presented and they who want to watch it must peek through a little hole. Inside of it some of his B-Roll and unused roll film from his latest filmmaking in Sumba would pe played. The visitors who want to enjoy his works must do it in an unusual way, by peeking inside the sculpture. This work is presented as an interdisciplinary and intermedium works that would give a unique experience for the public.Special Project | Piramida Gerilya
It started from a collaboration of interdisciplinary artists; Santi & Miko from Indieguerillas with Singgih Susilo Kartono (Spedagi Movement), who have a similar concern about the empowering of local people and how to be proud of local product, and Piramida Gerilya was formed. As their ideas, carried out by their movement, get matured, other collaborators like Agung Satriyo Wibowo from Ekoliterasi Jogja, Adamuda, Lulu Sindhu Prasastyo from Sapu Upcycle, and Lulu Lutfi joined the group.
By using the spirit of gotong-royong (mutual cooperation), a conception of sociality familiar to large parts of Indonesia since way back then, Piramida Gerilya strategizes. It is Murakabi, a Javanese word which means profitable and benefit for others, that would be presented as an installation of warung (a small shop). Warung has its own wisdom, compared to the ever increasing of modern retail shop around us. The interaction between producer and consumer in warung is different from the one in modern retail shop. In warung the interaction is more than just the transactional one.
Warung Murakabi is the embodiment of the re-emergence of gotong royong spirit in society. Inside of it, there would be local products (foods and clothes) made by people who are competent. Triangle is chosen as a symbol that can be interpreted as a relationship between three parties; producer-consumer-interaction space, and also as horizontal work practice with the Maker as its conical peak. This project is a start that hopefully would continue its guerilla spirit in the future.Special Project | SunaryoSpecial Project | Sunaryo
Through his works that would be displayed along the exit of exhibition, Sunaryo would pose some questions about the self of human. With an installation works that looks like a gigantic fish trap, public would experience a contemplation about time and space while walking down along the works.
By using a mixed medium of braid bamboo, mirror and sound of water, "Bubu Waktu" would usher the public to experience the contemplative artworks. If the aisle that looks like a tunnel is time, how can human repeat the past? If the end of it looks like a trap, are human trapped inside the space and the movement of time?Special Project | Teguh OstenrikSpecial Project | Teguh Ostenrik
Teguh Ostenrik based his works on his personal experience, while watching and being amazed by the richness and the beauty of underwater world in Indonesia back then, and how, now, they are badly destroyed by human action. With the spirit of recovering the life of coral reefs in underwater, Teguh reconstructs underwater installation that functions as a shelter for those coral reefs to live again.
It is "Daun Khatulistiwa", an advanced work that would be displayed in ARTJOG, that would provide narration about how important it is for us to preserve the beauty and the richness of underwater world. Taking inspiration from the form of teak leaf, this installation, with dimension 9 x 6 meters, would be presented inside a dome with element of audiovisual of underwater world. By presenting the works that exposes the beauty and the richness of underwater world, hopefully, the public awareness about the importance of preserving their surrounding, especially underwater world, would be awakened.
"Daun Khatulistiwa" is a haven, a shade from the sun, just like the function of some leaves in our lives. Moreover, this installation would not stop in the exhibition spaces. After the exhibition ended, it will be sent to the ocean, as a shelter for the recovery of coral reefs. "Daun Khatulistiwa" would demonstrate how artworks can also function as a solution for environmental problems.

YOUNG ARTIST AWARDS
YOUNG ARTIST AWARDS
Young Artist Award is a program that gives awards to the best young artists under 35 who participate in ARTJOG. This program is devised as an appreciation for their effort in creating works, and also to develop the potency and the insight of a young artist, and also to extend their network and career path in the art world, developed in partnership with the Culture Office of Yogyakarta Province.
This year, ARTJOG announces a collaboration with the Museum MACAN Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on Art and Education, to deliver the Museum MACAN Foundation Artist Residency Award. Presented alongside the Young Artist Award, the Residency Prize aims to support young artists to further their careers by providing a period of research and artistic exploration in Australia, Germany and Japan.
The 2019 Young Artist Award Judging panel consists of Fumio Nanjo (Director of Mori Art Museum), Aaron Seeto (Director of Museum MACAN), Natasha Sidharta (Director of IndoArtNow) and the curatorial team of ARTJOG MMXIX.
Three out of 13 young aspiring artists received the Young Artist Award are Andrita Yuniza (Bandung) with “Whirlwind of Time”, Enka Komariah (Yogyakarta) with “Juxtapose # 1”, and Natasha Tontey (Jakarta) with “Hama Memberkati/Pest to Power”.
Contemporary art doesn’t limit itself in one medium. In its practice, some artists have used interdisciplinary approach and medium in presenting their works. As a contemporary art festival, ARTJOG has always been trying to provide a space for various practices and the meaning of contemporary art. The presence of various performing arts, like in the previous ARTJOG events, is no exception.
In its presentation, ARTJOG would involve some curators who have unique practice and meaning in performing arts, like Ayu Permatasari, Rully Shabara, Rangga Dwi Apraiadinur, and they would bring their own unique colors in their works.
By reading the ever-developing practice and meaning of art, ARTJOG presents a program called Merchandise Project that uses a different approach from previous years. This program provides an interactive space for some artists with a wider public.
Some group/individual artists do not produce some objects only; they also produce knowledge through a workshop or social activation in contemporary art practice. By adjusting the meaning of practice and the big theme this year, ARTJOG teams up with individual/group artists like HONF Foundation, Afdruk 56, and RAR Editions to enliven this program by interacting with public through the production process of artists.
