Garden Fresh series investigates the shifting boundaries between humans and animals in today’s environment and the complex relationship between art and nature. It is like a fable about a journey undertaken by the animals when they venture into our daily lives. The animals are confronted by a new reality that is in conﬂict with their natural habits and habitats.
At the same time, when we see these ‘zoo-trapped’ animals in supermarkets, their most outstanding characteristics are isolated as their ‘only’ characteristics. The animals are stripped of their own identities and are used as empty vessels to be ﬁlled with the human drama of parody, satire and allegory. We cannot help but see animals from a human vantage point, and therefore in some sense all the works in the present exhibition are actually about us.
With picture of his Führer beside his clenched fist, a dead general of the Volkssturm lies on the floor of city hall, Leipzig, Germany. He committed suicide rather than face U.S. Army troops who captured the city on April 19. 1945.
semua itu tentang keduniawian, jika jiwa manusia yang diciptakan tidak mampu melihat cahaya sebagian diantaranya mencoba hidup dibawah terang sedangkan sisanya suka pisang yang digoreng agak keriting-keriting jika kau dibukakan mata hatimu lebar-lebar kau akan merasa bumi ini agak serong sedikit keatas. sesungguhnya secerah apapun cuaca dunia mencari tuhan tidak bisa kau lakukan dengan mata terbuka [link]
This image was created for the cover artwork of the second album of SORE; "Ports of Lima". I wanted the band members were shown as if they were the actors of a movie called 'orts of Lima' as we know this is not a movie title but a music album title. The concept of the whole artwork is basically, we tried to create a mock of noir films, as many of the songs in this album were inspired from movies by francois truffaut, akira kurosawa, david lynch, and so on.
Buy the CD (not the pirated one) and you'll get to see lots of images and a supposed-to-be-movie-screenplay inside the booklet we had fun making it.
