CERITA adalah proses kolaborasi kreatif untuk menghidupkan kembali tradisi Indonesia menjadi nafas kontemporer. Mengambil inspirasi dari alam Indonesia dan keragaman tradisinya, CERITA memposisikan dirinya sebagai “bumbu kehidupan” yang menghubungkan kisah masa lalu, masa kini dan masa depan.

Cerita KAMASAN merupakan hasil kolaborasi I Ketut Suendra, seniman Kamasan, desainer multidisiplin Venty Vergianti dan Puri Ardini (Studio Alun Biru)  melalui program pendampingan Gerakan Kreabilitas pada tahun 2019.

Pak Iskandar

Profile Pak Iskandar 

Pak Iskandar who is a visual artist created different artworks from paintings to installations. His house, which looks more like a gallery, displayed a lot of installations in every wall made of different waste materials; from damaged sandals, shoes to twigs, stone, plastic bottle caps, etc.

His artist career stopped a few years back when he fell sick, and a stigma that grows in the local community that claims his painting style doesn’t bring joy, looks weird and dark. Though, he still dreamed that one day he could have his solo exhibition again, like what he did in the 1990’s.
