After three years, finally Jendela Art Group (KSRJ) will be doing another exhibition. KSRJ members are Yunizar (b. 1971) and Jumaldi Alfi (b. 1973) who studied in the painting department, Rudi Mantofani (b.1973) dan Yusra Martunus (b. 1973) who studied in the sculpture departmen, and Handiwirman Saputra (b. 1975) who studied in the wood craft department. The group who will soon turn 17 will be exhibiting at OHD Museum, Magelang. The opening ceremony will be held on Saturday, 8December 2012, starting from 05:00 PM.
KSRJ was formed in 1996, in Yogyakarta. They held their first group show in Purna Budaya, Yogyakarta, the next year (1997). At the time, they were all still studying at Indonesia Arts Institute (ISI) Yogyakarta. Until now, the group has exhibited together eight times in Yogyakarta, Jakarta, Bali, Bandung, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), and the latest was at NUS Museum, Singapore, last 2009. This exhibition is initiated by dr. Oei Hong Djien and KSRJ.
KSRJ agrees to show their recent works along with their works in dr. Oei’s collection. “We agreed to do this Jendela show in OHD Museum. We wanted this to be different than their previous shows. They decided not to work with a curator so that they can be as free as they wish. They also didn’t work surrounding any particular theme. KSRJ and I have a long history, though small, but I believe that our relationship is a
part of Indonesian art history. I am proud to be one of the earliest who knew them. In the beginning, nobody was interested on their works,” said dr. Oei about this exhibition.
The title “The Window of JENDELA” was decided together during the discussions leading the this exhibition. On behalf of KSRJ, Jumaldi Alfi said, “It has been a while since KSRJ’s last exhibition. Lately, it is even difficult for us to meet as everybody is busy on their own. Since this is a museum show, everybody seems to be excited. We want this exhibition to not only be another chance to ‘read’ our works, but to also educate people.”
Show ends on 30 April 2013
OHD Museum open daily (10:00 AM-05:00 PM) Closed on Tuesday
