Bipolarity to Multipolarity
, / 11 November 2015

Putting Bandung’s contemporary art on the sleeve, the Bipolarity to Multipolarity exhibition which is taking place at Langgeng Art Foundation curated several aspiring Bandung-based artists you’ve might seen before. Having Rifky Effendy as the man behind it, the development of contemporary art practice in Bandung within the last decade can be summed into one word: dynamic.

To redefine the diversely increased works, Effendy sees it from crucial aspects, namely themes of development and medium explorations for what artists have chose in making work of arts, will gradually affect the market they targeted. By using stand-out or sexy themes – pop culture of whatsoever contemporary society in ever-changing world – can help, but without the right choice of medium, it means nothing. In this exhibition, we can see most of major mediums in art, ranging from photography, paintings, drawings to videos to decode the exclusivity of Bandung’s scene of art.

In a decade, uncountable world’s tiny revolutions took huge impacts towards every aspects and by that, the idea development between generations marked gaps in elaborating for the latest generation seemed more ingrained yet still searching for themselves, more of a lost perfectionist.

We marked some artworks we loved the most, particularly we’ve seen their artworks before and the element of surprise in it. Tara Kasenda is back with soft-and-hard work using pastel hue, might look raw and got you mixed feelings but again her simplicity brought a lotta bias. Faisal Habibi also known for his outta-this-world form in making artworks this time using multicolor which shows the multipolarity on each part. Tromarama with its multi-medium displays something that everyone can enjoy.

The rest  of the squad took the other way around in expressing transition of polarism. It is now your call to see which is which can offer unique matter of subject and artistic behavior within social field of visual art nowadays.
