What is it about paper? Diverse in its property, mailable in its treatment paper have been a guiding principle in the artistic practice of artists. It’s the foundation in which many of the exploration found a beginning. Introduced early in their life as a form of childhood activities, many experience what they later recall as, freedom and fearlessness in self-expression.
Through the progression of time each artists develop a personal relationship to paper as a medium. Some of the artists delve into their artistic process to express similarly as they would in a diary, while others utilize it as a system of sort. Whereby they can discern and liberate ideas more practically and in a more private domain. Deliberating a diverse intent and subject matter to realize a realistic imitation of their imagination. Intuitively and subconsciously they engage in a pictorial landscape to present or challenge people’s view through a visceral experience.

RUCI Art Space presents PARIPURNA by DIVISI 62. Curated by Gesyada Siregar. Can we really define what is ‘Indonesian’? The exhibition poses this question by presenting the works of @divisi62, a Jakarta-based group of individuals with backgrounds in music studies, anthropology, film, graphic design and photography.
In an era of globalization and mass reproduced culture, the lines between global and local are blurred. What is the relationship between “traditional” versus “modern” Indonesia? What does it mean for the modern Indonesian who are regularly exposed to and have academically studied Western concepts and ideas? As an exhibition, PARIPURNA examine these questions through the lens of the “modern Indonesian,” of the “Westernized Indonesian” returned. This pendulum-like tension is presented as an artistic stance in the form of a collective exhibition, displaying objects of interventions.
In their debut exhibition as a collective, DIVISI 62 intends to establish a dialogue of seeing the paripurna -- whole -- view of our ‘Indonesian’ identity and how to assess the aesthetics and ideological concept of “Indonesia” without any preconception. By re-locating and weaving the scattered fragments of our heritage, we can move closer to reach and reclaim the pieces that we have been detached from.

Place of Belonging
The main question dealt with in the show: how are the large – the universe and the small – the human body – connected?
Matter doesn’t speak for itself, the artist does that: he offers his narrative. In the exhibition Matter’s Matter, the different works – paintings, installations and videos – are different components that constitute a larger constellation. And the exhibition as a whole forms the total constellation. And as such, the exhibition comes to symbolize symmetry: different parts contributing to or joined in as a whole. And symmetry, in turn, can offer us – observers – aesthetic pleasure.

Realization that everything that exists has its own duality, which is contradictory but also complements one another, where without one of them there will be no balance. Like a coin that has two opposite sides.” –Abenk Alter --- The exhibition runs until 27 January 2019 Open daily Mon – Sun | 11 am – 7 pm RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org Media partner @thedisplaynet @hellountrusted #RUCIartspace #ABENKALTERxRUCI #INTERPLAY #AbenkAlterInterplay #soloexhibition
