The New East Indies: December Release


Started at the end of 2015, I did research relating to this collection, when I concluded that there was an ‘imaginative vortex’ in the development of our civilization. I tried to interpret the concept of ‘imaginative vortex’ into 6 points of view, 2 of them are Deviasi and Fuga.

lb_fw1617_1626bn_02_1200x802

Deviasi – Metrpole Bag

Deviasi: An attitude in problem solving which was conducted in many directions to reach a higher or a noble vision. I noticed that there was a spirit in our community for a change, where all experiential aspects were redefined. Truth and transparency became an absolute objective, and not a goal of a collective group. I visualized this attitude as a tentacular composition which portrayed an existence with no segments nor prejudice.

lb_fw1617_1627sn_01_1200x802

Fuga – Concerto Purse

Fuga: An attitude to forget perfection, which is hard to obtain, and to see what we have in the present to reach progress. I believed that wishful dreams were never an impossible matter. If it became difficult to accomplish the dream, we just had to repaint our dreams. I visualized this attitude with a composition of pen scratches, chaotically overlapping each other between dreams and realities.

My Sanctuary

Posted on Art | No Comments

lb_fw1617_home_02_02_1200x800My bedroom is my sanctuary. A place to rest, a place get away from all of the busyness of life, refresh, and rejuvenate.

It feels relaxing and I can do many things better and ease away any stress.

lb_fw1617_home_1625nv_05_1200x800

I like to have my breakfast in my bed when the light or the sunlight is shining from my window.

lb_fw1617_home_1625nv_02_1200x800

I sleep, I read, and I do my work in my bed. I have some books and a letter that I have not yet read, they are hanging on the wall in my sanctuary.

lb_fw1617_home_1625nv_09_800x1200

I brought a few things with me to give my room a taste of ‘home’. There are my tools to do my hobbies at the back door.

I’ve been busy getting my hands dirty with these tools and having super much fun in the process.

The New East Indies: November Release


Started at the end of 2015, I did research relating to this collection, when I concluded that there was an ‘imaginative vortex’ in the development of our civilization. I tried to interpret the concept of ‘imaginative vortex’ into 6 points of view, 2 of them are Deformasi and Transgresi.

lb_fw1617_1624rr_08_1200x802

Deformasi – Luna Tote

Deformasi: An attitude towards the interior of self which examined every imperfection and undressed every defect would definitely shock many faces. Through the transparency of this approach, vanity in individualism was deliberately sabotaged to be aware on the importance of taking down ego, destroying old masks, and forming a fresh character. I visualized this deconstructive attitude in several ink splashes.

lb_fw1617_1625nv_05_1200x802

Transgresi – Luna Tote

Transgresi: A defensive mechanism within my interiority which I exhibited with peace and discipline to overcome the old-world dogmatic attacks wishing to crush the new spirit. ‘Transgresi’ focused on the development of physical strength which worked side by side with humans’ spiritual maturity in protecting their privileges and territories. I visualized this attitude with a boundary line marked by an uncontrollable dripping ink.

The Art of Serigraphy

Posted on Art | No Comments

jou_20161011_btspro-244_1200x800

#1. Preparing The Film
– Every color is a separate film.
– An overlay of 2 or more colors might produce another extra color to the palette.

jou_20161011_btspro-168_1200x800

#2. Washing The Screens
– The screens are washed using an emulsion cleaner* and pressured washer hose.
* We can use distilled vinegar or magic eraser for stubborn stains.

jou_20161011_btspro-146_800x1200

#3. Preparing The Screen
– The screen is covered by photo-sensitive emulsion
– Sandwich the film with a glass over emulsion covered screen. Then expose the screen using natural sunlight or UV light source.

jou_20161011_btspro-124_800x1200

#4. Quality Control of Screens
– Hold the dry screen against the light to cheek if there are any holes. Use the screen fillers to patch these holes up.

jou_20161011_btspro-354_1200x800

#5. Preparing Color Draw-Downs
– We typically select 12 color patches for each collection. It’s necessary to make draw-downs of these colors on the actual canvas.
– We use Pantone colors for the home to set the formula standards for mixing.

jou_20161011_btspro-261_1200x800

#6. We Use Pantone Color Systems
– This Pantone Systems offer color mixing formulation calculator
– We use water based pigments and binders, which allow transparency between the layers of colors.

jou_20161011_btspro-503_1200x800

#7. Preparing The Canvas
– We use non-bleached raw cotton canvas, so the speckles seen throughout the surface of the materials are not dust particles. They are cotton seeds.
– Each canvas is trimmed and cleaned before serigraphy process is applied.

jou_20161011_btspro-334_1200x800

#8. Serigraphy Table
– It’s important that the work area and the serigraphy table are cleaned. Dust particles, small threads, or excess table glue can disrupt work method, as we aim to achieve maximum results.

jou_20161011_btspro-307_1200x800

#9. Water Based Pigments
– We use certified environmental-friendly inks and binders the best quality components available for this industry.

jou_20161011_btspro-282_1200x800

#10. Applying Serigraphy
– Serigraphy = silkscreen
– All process are drawn manually. It is normal to achieve unevenness of color throughout the whole collection.
– Each serigraphy pull produces a unique hand-made impression.

jou_20161011_btspro-170_800x1200

#11. Drying in Between Colors
– Every color application is a complete meticulous process. Every screened canvas requires a thorough drying process before the application of the next color.

jou_20161011_btspro-387_1200x800

#12. Protective Coating
– We use Poly Urethane protective coating on the overall final printed canvas. This coating gives water resistant property to the material, making it more durable.

jou_20161011_btspro-434_1200x800

#13. Heat Pressing
– We heat press each printed materials, for caring process.

jou_20161011_btspro-499_1200x800

#14. Final Printed Serigraphy
– After the caring process, all of the printed canvas sheets are trimmed along the fraying edges and prepared for the next process: cutting pattern.

Collective Support

Posted on Art | No Comments

jou_20160831_kt-26_1200x800

Melissa explained that her inspiration behind the story of the collection Fall/Winter 16/17 came from an astrophysicist, Jocelyn Bell Burnell, who discover ‘pulsar’ frequency in 1967.

jou_20160831_kt-121_1200x800

Art movie and art photography were made in the building was built in 1710 as the city hall of Batavia.

jou_20160831_kt-183_1200x800

Melissa collaborates with Davit Fitrik, a choreographer and a professional dancer to brought together ‘Tari Pulsar’ in this collection.

jou_20160831_kt-152_1200x800

Due to the fact that this field was new to Melissa, she started to learning contemporary dance regularly at the beginning of 2016.

jou_20160831_kt-134_1200x800

Once the artist has found inspiration, as a team, we continue to develop the concept to production. How will they look like? What is the story behind their character? How will she interact with other characters? What acts will she perform? We discuss it all during brainstorming sessions.

jou_20160831_kt-17_1200x800

A costume is a crucial part of the character’s visual look and makes a major difference on the impression she will give.

jou_20160831_kt-42_1200x800

Makeup complements one character’s and completes the visual look. Specific character traits can be expressed through makeup too.

jou_20160831_kt-186_1200x800

Our team understands what Melissa needs to make this process easy and runs smoothly. All things are well prepared, it is not from professionals but our team can make the necessary things become possible and be the perfect result.

A gasp from the crowd, energy use, making us not feel tired and proud of the results achieved.

The New East Indies: October Release


Started at the end of 2015, I did research relating to this collection, when I concluded that there was an ‘imaginative vortex’ in the development of our civilization. I tried to interpret the concept of ‘imaginative vortex’ into 6 points of view, 2 of them are Tessitura and Filogenesis.

Tessitura

Tessitura

Tessitura: A concept which explored chaos from a positive view point and examined the relationship between mankind and the universe. I took the word ‘Tessitura’ from music, defining a range of notes that offered the best sound texture and the most comfortably produced by a musical source (an instrument or a singer). I interpreted Tessitura using a heated orangutan’s face as my subject. I tried to picture their habitat’s condition enduring from forest fire as a result of human’s carelessness in overexploiting the natural resources.

Filogenesis

Filogenesis

Filogenesis: Phylogenesis is the evolutionary development and diversification of a species or group of organisms. In my essay, ’Filogenesis’ (Indonesian term) concluded a new change and defined a new identity. I had manifested the meaning of this word into a satirical phrase ‘Orang Gak Punya Utan’ in the same context of an orangutan as the subject. Along with the manifolds of disasters in forest fire, indirectly orangutans would be losing their rainforests and humans would also suffer the great loss due to the supply of oxygen. Note that this is only a small fraction of the loss.

Curatorial Statement

Melissa Sunjaya

Melissa Sunjaya

The New East Indies

The New East Indies presents an anthology of literature and artworks by Melissa Sunjaya, which examine the present state of Indonesian civilization and its potential future transformation. Traditionally, civilization has been interpreted through a distinct methodology based on human tendencies in viewing various problems and solutions through emotions, language, culture, art, and science.

The digital era has opened the door to a world without limits, where each individual is able to access a seemingly endless assortment of information rapidly from this secondary cyber-universe. Concurrently, advances in transportation technology have made it possible to travel thousands of miles in a single day. The two sectors have greatly accelerated the progress of our civilization. Yet one thing remains certain: there are discernible tradeoffs occurring alongside our technological advances. This acceleration has diminished our connection to the natural world and cultivated a civilization which produces pollution in abundance.

The opening collection from the New East Indies ponders the awareness needed to maintain harmony between humans and Mother Earth. This outlook is relayed through the artist’s reflections on modern environmental problems and their imaginable solutions. The collection reflects the artist’s frame of mind in regards to the ultimate potential of this era.

Fall-Winter 16/17: The New East Indies

Fall-Winter 16/17: The New East Indies

{Foreword}

Perhaps I am writing a utopian story in contrast to the hell most of us are facing. Yet I have personally experienced that, in times of chaos and insanity, imagining a paradise can accomplish more constructive wonders than criticizing our reality can. Allow me to share a story about a buoy that had saved me from drowning. At times when this soul was on the verge of drowning, I deliberately immersed myself in colorful emotions and surreal thinking, such that I could maintain the courage to envision what was broken within my world and could transform every one of my mistakes into my strength. Of course, I have no intention on dragging you into a rational discussion. Without any drugs or traditional medicine, I am inviting you to join me on a subliminal and explosive ride, because I believe that an intimate connection between us humans and our planet is critical at this point. My concern lies in how many of my thoughts you can digest, for I often conceal evidences within my stories through ambiguous symbols in order to protect my own fragility. Without criticizing present conditions and without forcing my perspectives onto anyone, I try wholeheartedly to share a practical and honest frame of mind. 

Tessitura

Tessitura

Finally, I found the courage to present my conceptual thoughts on ‘The New East Indies’, which I had been contemplating for a long time. These thoughts represent a way of seeing various aspects of social orders and cultural values, which I then compiled into a series of letters. In the beginning, the use of the word ‘East Indies’ was heavily challenged by several of my colleagues, since this word reminded them of the colonialist period which had been endured by my own people. Inherently, the term ‘East Indies’ originated from the geographical location of the Indonesian archipelago. Since the Middle Ages, this archipelago, situated east of the Indian Ocean, had been recognized by the Western World as a tropical haven, rich in various natural resources and decadent cultures. Today, this richness is still abundant in these islands. How far mankind has manifested free thinking towards making use of this richness is the core of several assessments which I will recount. The attribute of the word ‘New’ which I added here, illustrates a progressive viewpoint about the modern human capacity for cultivating his earth, celebrating his individuality, as well as appreciating his peers. A point of view which describes the obtainable potential if each individual within a certain generation anchors on empathy, intuition, and noble intention as he projects himself onto the vast world. A point of view which fortifies self-confidence.

Filogenesis

Filogenesis

All of these assessments are grouped into specific topics and are written in an intimate language, because in truth I wish to transform these papers into a series of time capsules for my future heirs. To me, freedom of and expression is a long journey, in spite of the fact that the imperialist era has long gone by. My objective is to share a few notes on a thought process which can still be developed toward reaching a better civilization, because it is through this winding process that I personally continue to gain inspirations on improving myself. Slices of these introspections were extracted from history and the lives of my ancestors, but I portray these through a raw and simple descriptions. This is a legacy that I inherited, and it is the time for me to pass on this gift to the next generation. 

Jakarta 2016,
Melissa Sunjaya
