Y : Collect presents the collection of young contemporary art collectors in an attempt to provide a prologue to the discussion of, why people collect art.
It will exhibit not only the artefacts, which are the collected artworks, but also will show a behind the scene “the insights of collecting”. Although this exhibition is just a prologue of our journey, but we hope the audience will catch the meaningful experience and obtain its inspiration behind. Collecting art is not just about hunting and buying valuable, moreover luxurious goods, but it is more likely our journey to appraise and preserve our recent culture through artworks and live with it.
We are exposing a range of artworks from the collections of Adhia Absar Arryman, Junior Tirtadji, Kinez Riza, Marissa Soeryadjaya, Natasha Sidharta, Nicholas Tan, Resida Irmine, Aryadi Jaya and Tom Tandio. Visitors can expect full room installations, sculptures, paintings and photography’s from domestic artists such as the works of Eko Nugroho, Heri Dono, Eddie Hara, Pintor Sirait and many more. International artists are also in collection such as the works of Xavier Barrel, Leiiela Pazooki and Asako.
“The aim of the exhibition is to invite the public to view different types of art that are being collected in Jakarta by young Indonesian collectors. To share the different points of view on what, how and why they collect. Opening this personal dialogue to the public hopefully can trigger in the minds of the visitor the question, why collect anything? Why collect art?” says Melin Turisno, Ruci Art Space Director.
Ruci Art Space participation in the art community is dedicated to exposing local and new emerging Indonesian artists locally domestically and internationally. Our hope is to bring alternative leisure liveliness through art.
