Recette : Second Taste of Reality and Sunyata

Drawing Exhibition
by Sebastien Szczyrk (French) & Greg Sindana

Kedai Kebun Forum (KKF) collaborate within the scope of the 35th anniversary of LIP/CCF Yogyakarta

This exhibition is about sharing, mixing and challenging the two artists’ perceptions and interrogations on the reasons to use drawings and collages for their artworks.

Is drawing a funny transformation of daily life?…

A collage like a puppet show in wayang culture?…

Can drawing be seen as an understanding of existence, society and knowledge?…

Can we see collage as a way to fight loneliness?…

Can drawing be seen as a simple and reflective way to contemplate our environment?…

Can drawing be associated to the primitive message in the cave?…

Can drawing be considered as a fight for a desired existence?…

Can we consider drawing and collages as a way to investigate and build an understanding and essential relationship between two artists from different cultural backgrounds?

The exhibition will present personal works of the two artists and selected collaboration drawings. The event will also feature a sound and music collaboration performance.

 

Artists’ Profile:

Sébastien Szczyrk comes from the North Eastern part of France. After his studies at the School of Fine Arts in Mulhouse, he graduated from the Beaux-Arts in Paris in 2005.
His work is a multi-disciplinary one and goes from his visual researches (drawings, illustrations, performances…) to his sound experimentations (CD, concerts, installations…)
In his graphic work, Sébastien places a lot of importance to spontaneity and re-interpretation of daily events. His drawings have been exhibited in Paris, Kyoto and Berlin.
Sébastien Szczyrk is currently working on a project entitled ” Un Escargot Vide ?” (An empty snail?) and has for ambition to direct an animation movie mixing his visual and sound centers of interests.

 

Greg Sindana, a ‘guru’ candidate from Sanata Dharma, who has great fear on texts and its implications, is eager to find teaching learning communication methods on inseparable reality. He believes that arts, politics, science, philosophy, culture, spirituality and education are correlative and have an “unfragmented” dimension.
Born in Yogyakarta, Greg Sindana had already held several solo exhibitions in Yogyakarta, such as Ikonisasi Kardus: Supervisual Culture; Unpredictable Concept: Human, Spiritual, Science; Kepauk: Extreme Realism of the Illusive; and Totem dan Reliabilitas.
