Frying Tahu

Frying Tahu;

– views of spirituality through illustration works from two poles –

Frying Tahu (“tahu” means “bean curd” in Indonesian, but can also means “to know”) is an exploration that aims to have a self confrontation by bringing with us our respective backgrounds, towards the diversity of some concepts of life. Through them, the way we perceive and conduct our lifestyle are based on; those are: Spirituality and Assumption/Supposition.

The Interpretation of spirituality in this project is not only through the concept of something transcendent, immanent or anything that connect into a religious idea, but also through views that rotate around materialism, atheism, and other common ideologies that perceive a universal spiritual system as being dogmatic. -Febrianto Pudi Utama –

On this project, we did a collaborative works between Indonesian and Italian artist. Febrianto as head project and curator – wrote; this collaborative effort is a simple step in order to open a gap in exposing the phenomena and refreshing the people who are involved, whether they are the artists who interact directly or appreciators who see the outcomes ready to be presented. Frying Tahu is also a small effort to avoid the tendency to have a one direction mindset and having partial point of views, which lead to move forward with strong but incorrect assumptions/suppositions about our own selves, another being, and also about what “we know”, and what “we do not know”.

Maradita Sutantio (b.1984) developes her interest towards fiber art since her bachelor education in Textile Art Departement of  the ITB (Bandung, Indonesia) and since then her works mostly based on her interest toward thread’s potential in contemporary arts.
This solo exhibition aims to showcase maradita’s intimate and intensive experimentation of materials where she stitchs her thread on the ‘un-imaginable’ surfaces such as wood, alumunium and walls. These experimentation is an attempt of the artist to convey her philosophical approach towards human’s existence that continuosly adapt with society, ‘converting’ identity, and negotiate to find harmony. In this journey, time is not seems as a linear dimension where individual is racing towards it’s acceleration. Maradita captures time as a non-linear phase where human and the circumtances foster a stage of balance.
