Indonesian women in general haven’t realize the ownership of their body and thought. Most of them make the biggest decision in life such as marriage and pregnancy by the tradition and stigma that live in society. In the other hand, feminist movement in Indonesia are mostly extremely stubborn and superior. They often underestimate other women who don’t share similar principle as them. In my opinion feminism is women’s and men’s issue, it supposed to be a dialogue, tolerance, and flexibility.

Gendis and her addiction

“Beneran, dikelilingi sepi itu candu! Coba!”
for Gendis exhibition, 2013
Mixed media on paper

At first when I was working on Gendis exhibition back on July – August 2013 this artwork is one of my non-favourite. I didn’t like the vibe but decided to exhibit it anyway (because I like that she’s doing the knitting thing in this drawing, ah, woman).

Yesterday when I go through Gendis exhibition folder for a press request, I suddenly stopped longer on this one and my heart scream “OMG, I love it!” I love it even more than my first favourite from Gendis series.

Life and the constant change. According to the changing love and favourite, I believe something has changed inside me between July 2013 – January 2014. The drawing’s vibe which I used to “not-really-like-it-but-whatever” surprisingly become my favourite. It touches me in a unexplainable way. Maybe, maybe I become the solitude junkie as her (according to the artwork title) or maybe I just admire her comfortable-happy face surrounded only by silence and yarn? I don’t really know.

But as I always said to myself, “never fight the change inside yourself, because it’s always for the better. Embrace it.”

Why coffee?
Coffee is one of our greatest treasure

Coffee has been a part of Indonesian culture for ages. Written records show that the first coffee to set foot in Indonesia (Batavia) was back in the year 1696 by the Dutch colonial known as VOC.
