After opening a direct visit on September 7, 2020, ARTJOG: Resilience presents Expanded ARTJOG. Expanded ARTJOG is an audio-visual work to enjoy and experience this contemporary art festival online. During the Covid-19 pandemic, physical encounter is limited, crowded places are avoided, and personal hygiene is the key. As a space that always brings people, work, and ideas together, this is indeed a challenge.
Although ARTJOG still receives physical and direct meeting by complying health protocols and a limited number of visitors, we realize that there must be other strategy for us to make so that the melting pot built long ago can be accessed by a large audience.
Collaborating with documentary practitioners, ARTJOG strives to record a reality and present it to the public. With this approach, several important elements such as the exhibition room, the process of displaying works, the process of producing works, and the presentation of the artworks can be seen, heard and experienced.
“There are 3 main ideas that we want to convey through this film, namely: ARTJOG as an event, ARTJOG as space and work, and ARTJOG in a socio-cultural context.” Kurnia Yudha F. (director) explained.
Expanded ARTJOG is a way to get around limitations, turn them into a different form of presentation, both experientially and artistically. Through this work, hopefully public who have been faithfully supporting ARTJOG will gain a different experience in enjoying ARTJOG: Resilience.
