OFCA International is pleased to announce our collaboration with PartNER for the presentation of Desrat Fianda’s Solo Exhibition The Meeting, opening October 3rd, 2017, 4 pm – 9 pm in Sarang building, Yogyakarta. The Meeting, a solo exhibition of Desrat Fianda presents works which are part of one series related to the artist’s working process since 2014, where he began to create a painting titled Malin Kundang’s Story – The Meeting. The painting was based on a historical photography related to the preparation of the proclamation of Indonesian independence. Fianda has painted this photograph for many times in an effort to understand how time affects our view on past facts, how history gets distorted, the fragility of documentation, the awareness in making history and how to address it.
In 2017 Desrat Fianda continues his exploration, creating art works in various media such as photography, video and sculpture. This exhibition allows the viewer to enter the artist’s creative process in understanding one historical event from many perspectives. It is built around the awareness that each object holds a wealth of additional meaning and that there is always a multi-layered story behind it.
Opening: 3 October 2017, 4 pm – 9 pm
exhibition run: 3 – 23 Oct. 2017
opening hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm
