What is captured by our eyes in a blink, a glance, and a gaze? How do we perceive the world according to these three different ways of seeing? This exhibition presents new works by Angela Judiyanto and Yaya Sung as they explore these questions. Here, Yaya creates photography-based works that delve into the act of ‘kamisan’, while Angela works with mixed-media illustration to reflect upon the complexities of personal narratives. Both of the artists’ works show that perception – what we see – is always inseparable from one’s memories, dreams, and desires. Often, we also discover that we never simply ‘see’ what surrounds us, but that ‘seeing’ also implies ‘imagining’: how things could be otherwise. Together, Angela Judiyanto and Yaya Sung invite us to rethink the way we see the world around us – through the blink, the glance, and the gaze. - Mitha Budhyarto

This exhibition is a continuation from Dia.lo.gue Artspace’s annual Exi(s)t programme. Each year, we invite two artists who have participated at the previous year’s Exi(s)t programme to be involved in a larger project, where they will present their latest works in a joint exhibition at our gallery. By creating a specific platform for emerging artists, we hope to nurture local artistic talents and contribute to the development of art communities in Jakarta.
