A solo exhibition by Nurrachmat "Mas Ito" Widyasena
Exhibition foreword Asmudjo J Irianto.
Nurrachmat Widyasena (@mas_ito) is a Bandung-based artist who explores the theme of retro-futurism, working in the mediums of printmaking, installations, video and drawing as well. His main idea is about Space Age, the zeitgeist of all mankind of the world during the 1940s - 1980s, when people dream, predict and try to realize how humans will live in outer space and how space travel was a thing that commonly found. In the Space Age era, there are a lot of justifications and promises of modernism that states the Space Age as a destiny of humanity for a better life.
The exhibition shows Ito's interest in sci-fi & pop cultures related to time machines and futuristic technology, which leads to a strong interrelation of how the human imagination of the future has not changed much until today. In this case, the title -in a satirical manner- showing a planned movement in an "emergency" situation of this issue.
