Axis by Praxis

The Global Wave

11 - 24 January 2020

G13 Gallery is proud to present the third series of joined Southeast Asia exhibition Axis by Praxis: Global Wave’ to usher in the New Year 2020 and set the new exhibition calendar in motion.

This exhibition will bring to the limelight a number of exciting artworks and practices produced by five amazing contemporary emerging talents from the Southeast Asian region, Doktor Karayom (Philippines), Edroger Rosili (Malaysia), Jarasporn Chumsri (Thailand), Khairudin Zainudin (Malaysia), and Maharani Mancanagara (Indonesia), for visitors to experience and appreciate.

The idea of a homogenous society caused by the process of globalization seems plausible to some varying degrees due to the advancement of the communication system that propels intersections of ideas. Quite on the contrary, globalization has shaken up drop by drop the conundrum of cultural diversity and has gradually fostered and given rise to the eclecticism of culture and art. Therefore, the unshackling aspect of artworks and practices, which is observed as being embraced by most artists nowadays, is set to be the principal theme in this exhibition.

Given the title Axis by Praxis: The Global Wave’, this exhibition offers a range of progressive and passionate artistic productions, all of which magnify five amazing Southeast Asia’s emerging artists, who are observed as varying in practice. Besides providing access and broadening the artists’ visibility in the art world, this exhibition is indubitably an earnest attempt to not only render the manifolds of the artists’ practices but also manifest their diversified backgrounds and experiences that make up their worldviews and positions as globalized members of the universal society.

Axis by Praxis: The Global Wave’s opening reception will be on Saturday, 11th January 2020, 8 PM and runs until 24th January 2020 at G13 Gallery. The Gallery is open daily from 11 am to 5 pm and is closed on Sundays and Public Holidays.

Artist Statement

The foundation of my recent body of work is the revealing of the parts of the human anatomical mechanism that were involved in performing out acts that were schemed by the mind.

Normally veiled by the skin, I want to suggest the muscle at work to be visible. I want to acknowledge the innocence of our body, they were just vessels with an extraordinary arsenal capable of doing many things conceived by the mind.

Innocence in a sense like “guns don’t kill people but the one who pulled the trigger”. I extended the phrase, which the fingers that pulled the trigger was also under a command chain to the mind, where the decision was made.

This tells us how we hold on to something we believe, on how to ask forgiveness and how to pray as a person, how to be a person and their view on what they believe, there are times when a man wants to be God to fulfill their desire, and they change when they have a taste of power.

If you are a kid, you want to grow old to do all the things you want but once you become an adult, you would likely wish to be a kid again to uplift the burdens felt being old leaves.

Artist Statement

More than fifty years of anesthesia is not a short period for victims and their families to inhale and endure the suffering caused by the crimes against humanity and the 1965/66 genocide in Indonesia. Unfinished business does not mean it should be forgotten. The violations of human rights that happened in Indonesia during 1965 – 1979 have been taken to the court of the International People’s Tribunal (2015) in Den Haag. The findings regarding the victims, perpetrators and witnesses have also been presented, resulting in several appeals that should have been carried out by the government. However, several years have passed now, and one would wonder was it just only to get our hopes up?

(Amicus curiae is a term commonly used in trials which means ‘friends of the court’, referring to those who have an interest in a case and present their legal opinion on the court.)
