Yogyakarta Indonesia Week 2

Yogyakarta Indonesia
Week 2

Carolyn left a few days ago. Her final day we spent the morning/afternoon at an opening for the exhibition Enjoy: Sculpture #1
curated by Nano Warsono at ISI (the Art Institute of Jogja). All I can say is -- spectacular! In the evening/night we had a big reunion with our artist friends here that was a much needed and great experience. Since then I've been doing work for the non-profits that I work with, helping Arie with the final preparations for the Sama-sama catalogue before we go to print on Monday, went to a meeting organized by Samuel of a large group of artists from here (about 30) to start a new community project/space, and met up with a great group of young street/mural artists to begin discussing doing a project here next week. All good. Though there's a lot of talk that Mount Merapi (the volcano near here) is going to erupt within the next couple of weeks!

Who knew Nano was such an amazing performer!!!!

This was a performance where a group of artists smoked and burned the letters to spell out Enjoy Sculpture. Carolyn and I were definately having flashbacks to the Art Institute.
