Sound and UV Text Installation
Indonesia, 2013-2015

Begins from the findings of a sound recording of H.B. Jassin court in 1970 which stored in Jakarta Arts Council archive. The sound recording contains the proceedings of Indonesia literary leading figure for a case of a short story Langit Makin Mendung by Kipandjikusmin published in Sastra Magazine August edition 1968. There were many people assumed that story has marginalized an Indonesia class of society. The court raised many questions, bumps, perspective, fantasy, illusion, up to opinion on how the arts position in the society with new regime, New Order was. The controversy between perspective of religion, law and arts had been attracted intellectual and artists’ attention at that time.

Sidang Imajinasi art project tries to deconstruct that event and makes bridge to present. In recent years, the perspective diversity had been creating horizontal conflicts. This situation exactly the same with the early period of Orde Baru regime.

This art project is one part of a grant program, called Hibah Karya! stands for Kembangkan Arsip Budaya (Develop the Cultural Archive) launched by Jaringan Arsip Budaya Nusantara (JABN) which founded in 2013. Two years ago, this project has been presented in Galeri Cemara 6.
