DOMESTICITY VI
November 12 – December 15, 2017



Kayu – Lucie Fontaine’s branch in Bali, Indonesia – is pleased to present its sixth project, “Domesticity VI”, a two-venue exhibition of international artists on view at Rumah Topeng Dan Wayang [The House of Mask and Puppet] in Bali and at Biasa Art Space in Jakarta, with the presentation of Arahamaiani’s performance as a parallel event of the Jakarta Biennale.


The participating artists are Arahmaiani, Fia Backström, Anthea Hamilton, Maria Hassabi, Michal Helfman, Esther Kläs, Agnieszka Kurant, I Gusti Ayu Kadek Murniasih, Miri Segal, Alice Tomaselli, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Marcella Vanzo and Alexandra Zuckerman and the show will be on view from November 12 to December 11 in Bali and from November 26 to December 15 in Jakarta.


Inspired by the work of Mierle Laderman Ukeles – with whom Kayu will do a solo exhibition in the future – this project is the sixth iteration of a series of exhibitions previously presented in Prague, Stockholm, Miami, New York and Bali.


“Domesticity VI” continues to investigate the relationship – or lack thereof – between contemporary art and domestic spaces. In particular, “Domesticity VI” wants to challenge the social and political implications behind the notion of domesticity, which is traditionally connected to women through the reflection of the relation between host (the space, male, power) and guest (female). This iteration of the project is also informed by the Asian context; in Balinese culture, the woman is not only in charge with the household but also responsible for making offering to the Gods; furthermore in Japanese culture and specifically in the Japanese tea ceremony, the woman has a leading role and the ritual has long been entwined with issues of power embodied through the host-and-guest relation. Through these connections and the notion of offering, the exhibition would like to bring a unique group of artists to exhibit artworks as offerings – often produced with local artisans – within a temporary structure designed by Japanese architect Fumihiko Sano and inspired by Japanese teahouses.

Kayu wants to make a special thank to Michela Magri, director of Italian Institute of Culture in Jakarta, for her generosity in supporting and believing in Kayu.
We also want to thank our entire sponsors and all local artisans involved in the production of the artworks; without them we couldn’t make this happen.

DOMESTICITY VI
12 November – 15 Desember 2017



Kayu – cabang Lucie Fontaine di Bali, Indonesia – dengan bahagia mempersembahkan proyek keenam, “Domesticity VI”, pameran perupa internasional yang berlangsung di dua tempat, Rumah Topeng dan Wayang di Bali dan Biasa Art Space di Jakarta, dengan pertunjukan seni oleh Arahmaiani sebagai acara paralel Biennale Jakarta.


Perupa yang berpameran adalah Arahmaiani, Fia Backström, Anthea Hamilton, Maria Hassabi, Michal Helfman, Esther Kläs, Agnieszka Kurant, I Gusti Ayu Kadek Murniasih, Miri Segal, Alice Tomaselli, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Marcella Vanzo dan Alexandra Zuckerman. Pameran akan berlangsung pada 12-19 November di Bali dan 26 November – 15 Desember di Jakarta.


Diilhami karya Mierle Laderman Ukeles – yang akan berpameran tunggal di Kayu pada masa mendatang – proyek ini merupakan pengulangan yang keenam dari rangkaian pameran yang sebelumnya ditampilkan di Praha, Stockholm, Miami, New York dan Bali.


“Domesticity VI” terus menyelidiki hubungan – atau ketiadaan hubungan – antara seni rupa kontemporer dan ruang domestik. Khususnya, “Domesticity VI” ingin menantang implikasi sosial dan politik di balik gagasan tentang kerumahtanggaan, yang secara tradisional dikaitkan dengan perempuan, melalui refleksi hubungan antara tuan rumah (ruang, laki-laki, kekuasaan) dan tamu (perempuan). Pengulangan proyek ini juga dijiwai konteks Asia. Dalam budaya Bali, perempuan tidak hanya bertugas mengurus rumah tangga, tapi juga bertanggung jawab membuat sesaji untuk para dewa. Selain itu, dalam budaya Jepang dan khususnya dalam upacara minum teh, perempuan memegang peran utama, dan ritual minum teh telah lama dikaitkan dengan masalah kekuasaan yang diwujudkan melalui hubungan antara tuan rumah dan tamu. Melalui kaitan dan gagasan tentang sesaji, pameran ini bermaksud menghadirkan sekelompok perupa yang unik untuk memamerkan karya seni sebagai sesaji – yang diproduksi bersama perajin lokal – dalam struktur sementara yang dirancang oleh arsitek Jepang, Fumihiko Sano, dan diilhami kedai teh Jepang.
