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 | 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 Riza
As a filmmaker, Riri Reza 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 | 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, "Lawangkala" 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 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.Participating Artist♦ Agan Harahap

YOUNG ARTIST AWARDS
YOUNG ARTIST AWARDS
Through Young Artist Award, ARTJOG provides access and opportunity for the best young artist under 35 y.o. This program is devised as a way to appreciate and honor their effort in producing the works. It is also an effort to do talent scouting and expand the insight of those young artists, and also expanding their networks and career trajectory in the art world.
Guest Juries | Fumio Nanjo

The presence of the one who was awarded Foreign Minister’s Commendation for Fiscal Year 2007 for his contribution to international cultural exchange over the years would provide some interesting contribution to ARTJOG’s Young Artist Award program this year.
Guest Juries | Natasha Sidharta
Growing up around a collection of modern art of Indonesia, Natasha Sidharta now strives to contribute to the ecosystem of art around her. Since 2013, she is involved in IndoArtNow, an archival website that promotes and support the art scene in Indonesia. This year the initiator of SAM Funds for the Arts and Ecology--a foundation that supports and gives grant to artistic research, archival work, experimentation, projects, translation works and publications--also becomes the jury of Young Artist Award. Her involvement in various projects (“Pollination: We’re in this together”, The Factory Contemporary Art Space, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2018-…) and “SUN SHOWER: Contemporary art from Southeast Asia, 1980s to now“, Mori Art Museum and National Art Centre Tokyo, Japan (2017) would provide a meaningful insight for the participants of Young Artist Award this year.
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 Ican Harem, 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, Ican Harem, and RAR Editions to enliven this program by interacting with public through the production process of artists.
