The Spirit 45 Indonesian movement, founded in 2017 by three young Javanese and Balinese architects, invites Sinar for an exhibition on March 11 at 5pm. “Contextual Making Form” explores the relativism between the influence of the context on the form of the project and the impact of this form on its environment. “We tend to put art in the background of our architectural research to take the path of a contextual approach especially when it is linked to the history of a place going pragmatically to the reuse of building materials “. Eka Swadiansa The conference and exhibition presents a series of projects that explore how form is contextualized. The reuse of building materials creating visual contradictions between the old and the new, a geometric survey on the evolution of archetypes that reveals the historical roots of contemporary forms and finally the influence of the tropical context through vernacular forms. rendez-vous on March 11 to meet these architects from the end of the world

Le mouvement Indonésien Spirit 45 fondé en 2017 par 3 jeunes architectes Javanais et balinais, s’invite chez Sinar pour une expo-conférence le 11 mars à 17h. « Contextual Making Form » explore le relativisme entre l’influence du contexte sur la forme du projet et l’impact de cette forme sur son environnement.

« nous avons tendance à mettre l’art au second plan de notre recherche architecturale pour emprunter le chemin d’une approche contextuelle notamment lorsqu’elle est liée à l’histoire d’un lieu en allant pragmatiquement jusqu’au réemploi de matériaux de construction ». Eka Swadiansa

La conférence et l’exposition présente une série de projets qui explore comment la forme se contextualise. Le réemploi de matériaux de construction créant des contradictions visuelles entre l’ancien et le nouveau, une enquête géométrique sur l’évolution des archétypes qui révèle l’enracinement historique des formes contemporaines et enfin l’influence du contexte tropical  au travers de formes vernaculaires.

rendez-vous le 11 mars pour rencontrer ces architectes du bout du monde

99 Percent The Guild

99% The Guild : Open House
We Glady invited you to come to 99 PercentThe Guild : Open house, new home of RAW, Omah Library, and Residence of realrich and family .

There will be a lecture by Anas Hidayat titled 1 percent yang dinanti, about the death of the architect after the work is born and sharing of the craftsmanship process with the team involved to attract discussion and further response. We need you to RSVP because space is limited, there will be food for people who are fasting at 6 pm after the lecture.
The term 99 % is a process of almost finished which every work is always faced where 1% is left to the future, where work is occupied, changed, redefined by further need. The work of architect processed based on its expedients, alchemy, and experiments during the process of the making. Expedients are about the resources available in the process, alchemy is about the relationship along the persons inside the making, and experiments is more into the product driven by expedients and alchemy. The discussion about this work is based on this 3 category to uncover the relationship in the process of making of the guild which we are all hoping to hear, see, and learn from its 99% product and process. The process of living inside the cluster is always evolving, in this open house, but the process will be opened and shared, for critics and restless spirits just for evaluating the process and product.
invitation card will be given after RSVP because the space is limited. Thank you, see you all

Palapa Project London

[vc_column_text width=”1/1″ el_position=”first last”]

Realrich is selected as currator for Palapa Project together with Andre Klauser, Alexander Taylor, Ben Wilson, Bridget Fleming, Chandra Johan, Francis Surjaseputra, Freyja Serwell, Martin Postler, Nancy Margried, Sou Fujimoto, Suzanne Lussier, Stelios Geros, Tex Saverio, dan Yoshiko Ikoma.

Here is one of the publication by media :

Bertempat di Auditorium William Soeryadjaya, Prasetiya Mulya Business School BSD City, Rabu (5/9), dipamerkan 30 produk kreatif hasil karya mahasiswa Indonesia. Semua produk kreatif ini merupakan hasil dari Kompetisi Palapa Project yang telah berlangsung sepanjang Maret hingga Juli 2013. Kompetisi ini terbuka bagi para mahasiswa seluruh Indonesia. Hasil karya yang masuk selanjutnya dikurasi sehingga terpilih 30 produk kreatif yang akan dibawa ke London untuk dipamerkan di sana. Kurator yang terlibat dalam project ini pun tidak sembarangan. Ada 15 kurator internasional yang ikut berpartisipasi, lima orang di antaranya berasal dari Indonesia. Ke-15 kurator tersebut adalah: Andre Klauser, Alexander Taylor, Ben Wilson, Bridget Fleming, Chandra Johan, Francis Surjaseputra, Freyja Serwell, Martin Postler, Nancy Margried, Realrich Sjarief, Sou Fujimoto, Suzanne Lussier, Stelios Geros, Tex Saverio, dan Yoshiko Ikoma.

Dari 30 produk kreatif yang berhasil menarik perhatian para kurator, dipilih tiga peringkat teratas yang akan ikut ke London guna menjelaskan karya mereka di depan publik. Peringkat pertama adalah Astrajingga dari Bandung. Produknya adalah sunglasses dengan bingkai kayu. Desain tersebut terinspirasi dari bentuk blangkon, sehingga motif warna kayunya juga meruncing di bagian tengah layaknya blangkon. Masih dari Bandung, di peringkat kedua ada Mandaka dengan produk berupa lampu gantung yang bagian luarnya berlapis kain lurik. Sedangkan tas tangan wanita Webe duduk di peringkat ketiga. Webe merupakan satu dari enam produk hasil karya mahasiswa Prasetiya Mulya yang masuk dalam 30 produk terpilih.

Menurut Albert Arron Pramono dari PPI UK (Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia – United Kingdom) selaku penyelenggara, Palapa Project ingin menghubungkan Indonesia dan Inggris lewat ekonomi kreatifnya. Ketika krisis ekonomi melanda Eropa, Inggris bisa dibilang satu-satunya negara yang berhasil selamat. Hal itu dikarenakan ekonomi kreatifnya yang telah maju dan kuat. Belajar dari situ, PPI UK ingin mengembangkan ekonomi kreatif di Indonesia dengan membangun networking antara pelaku ekonomi di Indonesia dengan pelaku ekonomi sekaligus pasar di Inggris.

Yang ingin ditunjukkan dengan adanya Palapa Project ini adalah Indonesia bisa menghasilkan produk kreatif, dan bukan hanya sekadar batik. Produk-produk yang masuk ke Palapa Project harus memiliki filosofi yang berakar dari kultur bangsa Indonesia. Sedangkan penilaiannya dilihat dari enam elemen, yaitu: design, content, feature functionality, usability, marketability, dan standard compliance. Untuk memasukkan karyanya, mahasiswa tersebut harus membentuk tim bersama seorang pengrajin. Mengapa?

“Mahasiswa biasanya penuh dengan ide tapi belum punya skill dan pengalaman. Nah, kekurangan itulah yang dilengkapi oleh pengrajin,” jelas Albert.

Di London, 30 produk kreatif terpilih tersebut akan dipamerkan di Bargehouse pada 4-6 Oktober 2013. Selain artist talk dengan para peringkat 1-3 dan kurator, agenda pameran tersebut adalah workshop serta networking night.

Silent Cry To The Saviour Angels, by : Kalanglarik

Realrich is in collaboration for Bayu Prasetyo’s Silent Cry To The Saviour Angels Installation at Tembi Rumah Budaya Together with other 2  artists, Susan Mayasella (visual arts), Anggitasari Mumpuni (fashion designer).

Here is the description by Media :

After winning a local poetry, storytelling and music competition in Surakarta (1993), his passion ignites from an early age. Since then on Bayu Prasetyo committing himself to arts as a medium of his contribution to the society. This chosen path unravels to be not without struggles, Bayu identifies himself as “Kalanglarik” in his dedication. In the same passion and struggles Bayu managed to complete his M.A. in Film Making from London International Film School (2006).

Silent Cry To The Saviour Angels is a selection of Kalanglarik’s notes. Without giving too much,kalang means horizons/limitations and larik from the word lyrics/words. In respect of every colors in one’s life journey, this installation celebrates the shades of grey in parallel to time. Moments where sincere offerings have no place, underrated despair, feelings of abandonment that forced us to questions our faith in The Saviour Angel’s existence -all that is hidden from our day to day survival functionalities.

An explorative piece, Bayu dedicates a space to deliver his poems through various separate installations that correlates with each other. Done by orchestrating all elements within that space, may it be props, sound, light and many others, Silent Cry To The Saviour Angels is transforming a room designed to trigger our sensory receptions and memories. An opportunity for other people to interact and engaged in the process of creating their own personal stories.

Although different, yet its creative approach is similar to film-making, which is to integrate, support and enhance the process of story-telling. Worked in close collaboration with three other artists, Susan Mayasella (visual arts), Anggitasari Mumpuni (fashion designer), Realrich Syarief (architect), along side the support of British Council Indonesia and many others, Silent Cry To The Saviour Angels is visitable at TeMBI Rumah Budaya: Jalan Gandaria I/47B, Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta Selatan.
