In partnership with creative web portal GrafisMasaKini, Serbia-based art production company 80|10 present Atmosphere, a joint exhibition of six Indonesian visual artists, graphic designers, photographers and illustrators to represent “new” and young Indonesian creative scene. The six artists have been closely selected to represent narratives that are contextualized within Indonesian cultural frame, but at the same time can easily be understood by the Serbian audience.
The aim of the exhibition is to break down prejudice and ignorance about Indonesia and the desire to show this area from a different perspective than usual. Distant, “exotic” countries like Indonesia are often shown as “banana republics”, as rural areas and/or jungle, often associated with economic and social underdevelopment. The exhibition examines the dialogue of Indonesian artists through their works with their own culture and how they adapt their ideas to the cultural heritage while maintaining its creative character and features.
