Brief on Artwork

The Exhibition entitled “The Food Diplomacy: Makan Ngga Makan Asal Kumpul” uses the terms to the cultural gathering in Indonesia as an ephemeral plaftorm to extend the ideas from every artist that participates in food practices which are critically related to health, culture, socio-politcs and any other arts through exhibitions, shows and workshops. 

Supported by various artistic methods, the presented works were imaginatively designed to negotiate and deliver the issues that were discussed by each artist. The subjects of discourse are food production and distribution modes, minor narratives of Indonesia's socio-political history related to food sovereignty, contemporary trade politics in the snack industry, spices and herbs as alternative medicine, and the future relation between arts and technological creativity which may offer alternative solutions in minimizing the negative effects of companies within food industry in local-global context.

For example, in some two dimensional works created by Adi Sundoro, he tried to inform on how the food distribution process has been carried out internationally by companies throughout the history using their transportation tools.

Moreover, Bakudapan’s work observes the connection between politics and food through a minor narrative, based on women’s experiences as former political prisoners. This is related to one of the darkest socio-political era in Indonesia history (1960s), which not only evoked genocide but also changed entire policies from agriculture & food to agrarian law, export interest and trade policies.

Moving on to the domestic space, work installation created by Fajar Abadi discusses the snacks product that we usually eat during our leisure time such as watching movies or when we are out with our friends. His work relates to political trade on a regional and global scale in the cases of home industries and manufacturers.

Meanwhile, created by Natasha “Tontey” Gabriella is an imaginative work about the sustainable future that is led by pests with a cockroach figure since it is the only species that has the ability to survive despite many extinctions and transformative events.

In Fransisca Retno’s work, she will conduct a participatory performance by persuading people to be involved in the process of making herbal concoctions with a mixture of spices. After that she will let the people to taste the result of the concoctions that have been made. In the designed room, House of Natural Fiber creates new-media art works that informs people of the negative effects that several types of popular foods have on our health.

Then finally, there are the installation and video works created by XXLab over past few years about the process of industrial waste that produces tofu into ready-made fabrics.

Some Asian countries that have similar cultural backgrounds are also similar in terms of food relations, bio-political practices and its changing practices on the way people consume without considering where the food comes from.  In that context, how do we, as a society, practically and theoretically separate the causal relations inherent in capitalism by considering things like; material-discourse, scientific-affective, human-non-human, and cultural-natural elements. Through this project, hopefully, people will be more aware on how the chain of food production and distribution have their exclusive scale in influencing ethical, economic, and artistic values.

Moreover, this project is consciously open to all possibilities about the importance of practice based on research, is value oriented, and prioritizes critical thinking rather than just the normative problems.
