Je Ne Sais Quoi “Kotakukotakita” Exhibition at House of Sampoerna part 1

Je Ne Sais Quoi is an expression to describe something that someone really attached to it and become so hopelessly fascinated that he/she ‘s not able to explain what’s ‘the thing’ that makes something so special..A depression in a good way, it also means that when something is so wrong it’s right.

The Jargon above  is probably familiar in the context of Fashion. it almost a coincidence I read this savy pocket book-I forget the title was- and all of sudden this France phrase got me attention..Je Ne Sais Quoi then became the name of my artwork this year, in an venture of Visual Communication Design department and House of Sampoerna celebrated 274th Surabaya anniversary on May 2017. Kotakukotakita is the big theme that’s going to bring this exhibition to the next level.

Some of the art pieces are interactive and in advance of technology. There will be an optical illusion playing with shadows and lights projected onto 3D model city scape of Surabaya, another art work is a mini sculpt molded through Blender (3D animation engine) and run into a 3D printing. Mine is mindblowingly goes side by side with the other two ‘back to the future’ works, a-virtual reality-scape showing Tunjungan Plaza Surabaya  in 360 panoramic view,  along side these there exotic-skinned fashion figures posing fiercely through the lens of Google cardboard. One can experience being inside the environment and seeing the 3D model of Tunjungan Plasa city scape but in a fashionable way.

Exhibition haul

Yeay Finally I can post my latest artwork from Munipicium Ars International Art Exhibition held on Petra Christian University and ModCon. The first one was basically for the lecturers and students around the world responding on how they saw people and the city where they live and what was going on in there through arts. People from Netherlands, England, Japan and China had been joining in this event, so it was super cool, as a matter of fact I can get credit points by participating to this international exhibition. The next one  I was participating to was Modcon (Modern Conference). It was a competition under the collaboration of Jakarta 32 c and The Australian embassy. The goal is to engaging the newcomer artists, professionals and students to create their masterpiece and a platform to showing it off. So here are my process that I had been done all through in order to create the work.

These are my work for Munipicium Ars at 15th-18th August 2016. I superimposed two objects, the city building and the profile picture of Esa. The old Surabaya remake pictures as shown bellow were my college work in the final year at 2008.

..and here is my work for ModCon with the concept shown bellow..

‘The Digital Makeover displays ‘pretty’ bluntly what technology is capable of. The man bestie constructs almost everything in our life and it seems so helpful that we become addicted to it like the apps on our gadgets and cellphones. The beauty apps for instance, constructs the way of women see beauty especially in Indonesia. Young girls rapidly apply effects and filters within the beauty apps because having a fair skin, heart-shaped face, wide eyes are considered as beauty. Just tap, tap, tap on the screen, the face will instantly look beautiful without any cost. The girls love it, so every time they take selfies, they edit their photo. Its easy, and totally fun to do. More so it become a ‘ritual’ in today’s society.

The mundane activity celebrates beauty as just some cover, forgetting the essence, abandoning what’s really real. It doesn’t matter if it’s fake or not, true or false as long as it’s fun, it’s cool. Indonesian women are losing their real beauty: tanned skin, with narrow eyes and broader jaw-Malayness kinda look, substituted with the new construction of beauty that is more Korean and Caucasian.

I love French for IFI (Institut Francais Indonesia)

These are my artwork for 6th March 2012, What we love about French..

The concept is to portray the idea when people falling in love, they just can’t stop thinking about the one they love, and adore..they starting to see the image of their beloved one every where, every time..like in the very first morning you have your breakfast, or you with cup of tea and cake enjoying the scenery of orange dusk hugging the sky or even when you walking trough your closet and finally find your long time missing funky chunky shoes just right there…and all of a sudden you feel like you’re in French, you feel soooo fashionable and romantic!…waiit, waiitt, that was hell of a concept, wasn’t it?
