Terrorism to some people considered as a holy act. Wrapped in religious dogmas, this act of terrorism is becoming complicated as it sometimes interwoven with political agendas.

The socio-political dynamic in this era of globalization sharpens the conflict of any interest based on different ideological view, the gaps between rich and poor, conservative economic versus so called neo-liberalism, and also what is stated by scholars as clash of civilizations.

Armored by the possibilities of advance technology on communications, information, and weaponry, all the idea even on single living individual is ready to be operated in combative action. All radical actions find its way to act. In this turmoil and delicate atmosphere we now live in.

To die for religion consider holy and can purify ones and or collective sins and for believers in this action they declare war against impurities or any bad influences outside of their religion dogmas. History has its darkest ages that religion became too dogmatic and then corrupted as it was twisted by some of the leaders. Religion is hijacked by the idea to homogenize the world, the universe, into one single belief that claims itself the righteous one.

Program ini merupakan salah satu program khusus yang diselenggarakan dalam setiap penyelenggaraan Nu-Substance Festival. Dalam pameran tahun ini, Agung Hujatnikajenong (Kurator Selasar Sunaryo Artspace) secara khusus mengetengahkan tema kuratorial "The Loss of the Real", yang diharapkan dapat menjadi wahana untuk melakukan kajian dan refleksi terkait dengan perkembangan teknologi informasi dan media baru.

Secara umum pameran ini akan mencerminkan situasi di abad informasi yang membuat dunia semakin terkoneksi dan menjadi kian transparan. Realitas abad 21 telah mengalami pergeseran ketika kenyataan yang selama ini kita kenal semakin meluruh dan digantikan oleh kenyataan baru yang diwakili oleh keberadaan teknologi informasi dan media.

Karya-karya yang akhirnya dipilih buat pameran ini menunjukkan persepsi pembuat foto tentang tubuh, sebagian besar mengenai tubuh perempuan. Rekaman para pembuat foto ini adalah salah satu cara menghargai, merefleksikan relasi yang sifatnya personal/sosial serta cara pandang terhadap tubuh yang mempengaruhi pikiran, sikap dan perilaku manusia di tengah masyarakat.
Karya-karya foto ini menunjukkan bahwa dari sudut pandang pembuat foto, tubuh bukan hanya objek material melainkan juga medan konflik antara berbagai tuntutan dan imajinasi yang ada di sekelilingnya. Melaui karya-karya ini kita akan melihat bagaimana pembuat foto secara pribadi menampilkan apa yang dirasakan oleh pembuat foto tentang tubuh – khususnya tubuh perempuan – dan keragaman pendapat mengenai tubuh.

CUT2010: New Photography from Southeast Asia: PARALLEL UNIVERSE

03 Mar – 27 Mar 2010

VALENTINE WILLIE FINE ART
1st Floor, 17 Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur.

tel: (+603) 2284 2348
fax: (+603) 2282 5190

opening hours:
Monday to Friday 12 - 8 pm and Saturday 12- 6pm | Closed on Sundays and Public Holidays. Admission is free.

Artists produce alternate visions and (sur)realities that entertain and challenge audience perception. CUT2010 explores these parallel universes through the fictions and tilted perspectives of the photographic lens. The authenticity of photography as a conveyor of truth has been distorted and empowered throughout its evolution from daguerreotype to film and digital. Experimentation within the medium continues to enable artists the opportunities needed to create ambitious technical illusions as well as compose staged tableau and capture uncanny moments from the everyday. Exploring dichotomies such as fairy tale and nightmare, dystopia and utopia, the exhibition reveals grandiose fantasies and skewed realities that entertain our perceptions of what is real and what is imagined.

The exhibition takes as its starting point the notion that photography is a mechanism for imagination, adventure and escape through its technique and subjects. Like theatre and film, it has the potential to immediately animate and provoke our senses, encouraging powerful and complex emotional responses. These new worlds of possibility explore the hopes, dreams, insights and observations of their creators to become amplified spectacles of shock, desire, delight, sadness, humour and enlightenment. With seemingly limitless visual inspiration and ongoing technical advances photography as a medium, constantly pushes the boundaries of visual sensation and understanding.

CUT2010: PARALLEL UNIVERSE, provides numerous entry and exit points into the ideas presented by each artist. In its entirety, these imaginary worlds within worlds, presents personal and public consideration of ongoing questions surrounding the evolution of cultural and gender identity, sub cultures, religion, landscape and the urban environment. Combining elements of nobility and farce, pathos and critique super heroes laugh at body builders, online gamers jeer at religious utopias, architecture becomes a ghostly stage and mysterious scientific expeditions shy away from erotic dolls and unforgettable human characters. These existential obsessions, hallucinations and ambiguities of both photographer and the people and objects on display are revealed for audiences to recognise and question. What seems familiar can at once become alien and disturbing, playful and fantastical. The unfamiliar suddenly resonates with universal truth.

Now in its third instalment, CUT: New Photography from Southeast Asia continues to establish itself as a dedicated platform for photography in Southeast Asia. It aims to contribute fresh thoughts on the status of the medium in the region as well as the aesthetic and academic impetus of the diverse subjects being explored by individual practitioners in photography today.

Kehidupan budaya urban dengan imajinasi global menjadi salah satu arus utama dalam tiap kajian budaya saat ini. Walaupun tak semua pengamat budaya berpendapat bahwa globalisasi menciptakan wajah budaya yang seragam. Namun globalisasi menyisakan pertanyaan-pertanyaan pada nilai-nilai lokal kehidupan sebuah bangsa. Interaksi budaya dalam suatu wilayah sudah pasti bersinggungan dengan nilai-nilai yang telah ada sebelumnya dalam suatu masyarakat, terutama di perkotaan atau lebih tepat dengan sebutan metropolitan. Maka pameran Urbantopia juga diharapkan memberikan gambaran besar bagaimana wajah masyarakat perkotaan di era global, mencakup realita, imajinasi, bahkan impian-impian atau utopia-nya.

Lewat karya-karya fotografi (dan foto-media), oleh dua-belas fotografer, kita disuguhkan bagaimana cara pandang mereka melihat masyarakat dan budaya urban saat ini, dengan pengamatan cermat terhadap fakta sekaligus dengan penuh imajinatif dan juga olahan artistik yang lanjut. Para praktisi fotografi ini menghadirkan beragam subyek dan bentuk yang beragam dan beberapa lebih cenderung melampaui berbagai aliran yang konvensional. Apakah itu foto-jurnalistik, salon, fashion, periklanan dan lain sebagainya. Tapi hal ini juga sekaligus menunjukan gambaran bagaimana fotografi kontemporer ingin menembus batas antara yang bukan seni dan yang seni, menghampiri suatu pendekatan terhadap konsepsi – konsepsi estetika yang mutakhir.

SUATU ketika Njoto pernah berkata: "Barangsiapa masih berkata juga bahwa seni itu non politik, sesungguhnya dia itu reaksioner.

Pemimpin Redaksi Harian Rakjat, petinggi Partai Komunis Indonesia (PKI), pendiri Lembaga Kebudajaan Rakjat (LEKRA), sekaligus politikus yang juga berkhidmat sebagai seniman dan musisi itu sangat meyakini bahwa budaya, termasuk ranah sastra dan seni, adalah elemen pendukung yang vital untuk membangun kehidupan bernegara.
