.Transient Museum of a Thousand Conversation.
[ISCP - New York, 2020]
The project at ISCP, Transient Museum of a Thousand Conversations is an adaptation of 900mdpl. LIR invites artists every two years to undertake fieldwork in Kaliurang, resulting in solo projects at various sites throughout the village. Their projects are later reinstalled together in a temporary museum of oral history as a prototype for the future MUKKA (Community Museum of Kaliurang) envisioned by LIR. Selected artworks from this ongoing project will be presented at ISCP alongside additional new work by local artists from Kaliurang. At ISCP, LIR’s intervention will create an expansive portrait of the landscape, people and society of Kaliurang, by focusing on subjects such as botanical specimens, alternative histories of Dutch colonization, traumatic memory, national identity, culinary heritage, social space and storytelling.
Artists included in the exhibition are Edita Atmaja, Ibnu Banu Harli, Ahmad Barokah, Lala Bohang, Arief Budiman, Fyerool Darma, Paoletta Holst & Brigita Murti, Mella Jaarsma, Kelompok Fotografi Kaliurang, Agung Kurniawan, Jompet Kuswidananto, Maryanto, Dimaz Maulana, Anggun Priambodo, Mark Salvatus, Yudha Sandy and Rara Sekar.
