Every Artwork is A Perfect Photo Background

Do you agree with the title? Nowadays, people are so usual with photographs. The existence of Instagram and other visual-based social media makes everybody a photographer, a journalist. People are starving on good pictures.

And well, me too. Hahaha. I have warned you to be ready seeing my face on many photos, right? Hahaha. Yes, you're right. This is still about Biennale Jatim 6 I visited last week. Every single photo where my face is shown was taken by my friend, Cahya (well, who else?).


This is Cahya
Remember the space with pop art atmosphere? We tried to imitate the expressions.



And imitated the fashion installations too...


"Gula Itu Merah, Jendral!" probably was the favourite of most people who came here. Because there were some wings for us to take some pictures. I did too to look like angels. But, I was also interested in a big writing "Manisnya Gula". Felt like "I'm sweet, so I want a picture with me under it" hahaha.

Unfortunately blurred :(


 As I promised in the post part 2, you'll see the wall which was full of bran.


Cahya saw the next room and she was sooo excited. Since she was a kind-hearted girl who's active in campus teaching program called ITS Mengajar and she loves children so much.


And the time came. The spaces below made me oh-so-happy and resulted in oh-so-happy pictures.


We're so tired walking and were very happy to find a sofa

How? Get bored with my face? It's your lucky day because we finally come to the last photo, "vespa commercial poster".


So, do you agree that artworks are perfect for photo background or set?
I'm hoping to see you soon, Pals. Oh, and please pray for my final projects. Thank you for your time that was spent to visit this blog!

xoxo,

*Ok, I lied. This is really the last picture. We tried to take pictures with the timer, but we got caught!

An Artsy Saturday Night at Biennale Jatim 6 (part 2)

Assalamualaikum, Pals. It was already last week, but I want to continue to our next steps in Biennale Jatim 6. Next step was in front of the fashion installations. It was a dark room and I found some pieces like this:

It's made of used scanner and it's turned on!
Next room was really red. It's a historical artwork with the wall written with an old timeline about sugar industry in Indonesia in the colonial era. Still in the same room, a decoration was created like a dreamland on the red sky, completed with flying houses, clouds, and wings (for photo freak). This artwork was titled "Gula Itu Merah, Jendral" or "The Sugar is Red, General!".


Many people came as couples :"
Stepped to the next room, our noses were touched by the contaminated air. It's a room with the wall filled of bran, the waste of rice milling. You'll see the wall on my next post, Pals.

I think they're art students. Came to write down the artworks and the artists.

Seems like a crime scene, huh?

They're drawn with pencils, Pals 0.0


I love this room below. It has an installation made of used bicycle. I thought of spinning it, but I was doubt because we're forbidden to touch the artworks in the first time we enter the exhibition. But I saw someone spinning it on Instagram -.-

The dolls were made of reused bottle

A decor inspiration for those who loves pop and vintage in the same time
 And finally, we're so close to the exit door! We found some 'vehicles', hahaha.



You probably wonder why there's no pictures of me in 2 posts about this event. Don't get it wrong, Pals! I'm still the face of this blog. So, prepare yourself. You should be ready to be bored seeing my face on the next post.

See ya,

An Artsy Saturday Night at Biennale Jatim 6 (part 1)

"Arts Ecosystem: Now!"

That tagline succeeded to make my curiosity coming out. I imagined amazing paintings, fantastic installations, a cool event to be reviewed on the blog! Because there will be many good photographs I guessed. And yes, it's not many but soooo many. I'm very confused to pick the photos I want to post. Because they're all so cool and I want you to see all of the artworks. That's why this post will be in more than a part. I even didn't take the pictures of all the artworks and I'm still confused. When I edited the photos, I've just realized why I was so tired while walking around the exhibition.

This year's Biennale Jatim is the 6th and this event, according to the website, is held once in 2 years. Biennale Jatim 6 is held in Balai Pemuda Surabaya in 11th-24th of November. So, there are 2 days more for you to come!

The painting welcomed us
I came with my friend, Cahya right after maghrib and it was quiet there. We filled the guest book and decided to really enjoy the artworks without touching the camera (especially me) in the first round and would take another round for just taking pictures. But apparently it's not a good decision because the situation became crowded in our second round.

Coming to the exhibition, we're welcomed with a very big painting. Well, most of the paintings there were in the big sizes or in small sizes but were put in a certain way so people could enjoy from a few meters (well I learned architecture here). There were also some stories of this event and history of art in Surabaya.



Stepping to the next door, we still saw paintings...

The fish looks clearer in the photo
My friend, Cahya, with the painting that tells about traffic jam and Jakarta's busway
It looks 3D from a certain angle
Actually, there were more paintings but I didn't take all of them in photographs. We stepped up through a small stair. Here, we see three-dimensional artworks. This space was full of people and it's so difficult to take a photo.

Made of used bicycles and pipes
The 'mushrooms' are made of ceramics

The insects were made of recycled glass
A part of a wood doll land
Next, some designed rooms. Each room was decorated in a certain theme...




Next space gave a little pop atmosphere...





And finally, I saw fashion!


Next step was...
Wanna know more?
See ya in the next post!

New Face!

Howdy, Pals. Assalamualaikum...

Do you guys have ever thought that getting bored is a part of humanity? If yes, so I'm really into humanity. Cause I'm bored with my last theme of this blog. And, yes now you can see it. I have my new blog face!

Actually, I planned to change the theme of this blog on the first day of November for welcoming November. But, what can I do? I'm an architecture student who doesn't even sleep for her messy final project (a little bit too much hahaha). Actually, the change is just simple. Not an overall change, but only some changes header, icons, some layouts. Well, quite many, huh?


So, welcome to the new World of Wardah!

*Actually when I wrote this post, some changes I planned haven't been applied.
