CLUB "ZZTTT": "…Ojo Kepaten Obor…"

Pernahkah Anda bayangkan jika aktivitas yg konon Anda jalani—bahkan aktivitas itu Anda pilih sendiri untuk intens dipelajari—secara perlahan-lahan kini telah Anda tinggalkan? Apakah semua itu terjadi di luar kesadaran? Lantas pada suatu waktu, setelah hampir satu dekade atau bahkan lebih, Anda pun menyadarinya dan muncul hasrat untuk kembali merengkuhnya. Anda merasa rindu dengan aktivitas yang dulu pernah mewarnai kehidupan Anda selama masa studi, masa pencarian jati diri, & barangkali masa muda ditemani "brigidin" penuh hura-hura.

Terkait hal tersebut, izinkan dituliskan ikhwal aktivitas berkarya dan berkesenian bagi 5 perupa ini, yakni Bagas Arga Santosa, Baskoro Latu Anurogo, Erfianto Wardhana (Gurit), Erwan Hersi Susanto (Iwank) & Dioren Jalu Permana (Oren). Sebagian di antara mereka adalah personel grup band Kornchonk Chaos (salah satu kelompok musik ternama selain Soekar Majoe, Steak Daging Kacang Ijo, Blackboot, Sri Redjeki, ISPA/Irama Senada Panah Asmara, Gestapu, dsb).

Dan mereka yg kini berpameran memang sebagian di antaranya sudah lama (bahkan amat lama) tak berkarya seni rupa. Awalnya, saya tak memercayai begitu sahaja. Kendati tetap optimis dengan semangat mereka untuk bisa memulai berkarya seni rupa lagi, lantaran hasrat mencipta karya seni rupa itu pasti sudah lama mereka tahan-tahan, & barangkali orgasme mereka sudah beda pengalamannya. Kenapa saya katakan bahwa pengalaman mereka sudah berbeda?

Satu hal yang mungkin dapat menjadi pengingat bagi para perupa di sini adalah bahwa berkesenian tidaklah sesempit bidang kertas ataupun kanvas. Berkesenian adalah seluas kehidupan ini. Berkarya seni rupa dan berpameran memang bisa dianggap sebagai salah satu wujud berkesenian. Kendati demikian, aktivitas nyata dalam keseharian, baik itu momong anak, mengajar & berbagi ilmu secara nyata di tengah rakyat, jika itu dimaknai sebagai ungkapan bersyukur, maka kandungannya selaku karya seni sahih ada.

Have you ever wonder if the activities that you usually do – even when it is the activities that you chose to intensely learn of – is slowly being neglected? Did it all happen out of your conscience? And then one time, after almost a decade or more, you came to realize it and suddenly there is a desire to do any of it again. You long for the activities that used to fill your life during your study time, identity seeking time, and maybe even the times when you were young and having fun.

Related to that, let us write down the art making activities of these five artists; Bagas Arga Santosa, Baskoro Latu Anurogo, Erfianto Wardhana (Gurit), Erwan Hersi Susanto (Iwank) & Dioren Jalu Permana (Oren).Most of them are part of a band called Kornchonk Chaos (a famous music group beside Soekar Majoe, Steak Daging Kacang Ijo, Blackboot, Sri Redjeki, ISPA/Irama Senada Panah Asmara, Gestapu, etc). And most of these who are currently participating in this exhibition have long (even very long) never been in the field of visual arts. In the beginning, I didn’t believe it. I’m optimistic with their spirit to begin again in making artwork, especially when they have long been holding the desire to, and even their orgasm is now different. Why did I say different?

One thing that might be a reminder to artists in here is that making art is not as narrow as the size of paper or canvas. Making art is as wide as this life. Making artwork and exhibition can be called as a form of art. Moreover, real activities in daily life, be it taking cate of children, teaching and sharing knowledge to the society, if they are seen as an expression of gratefulness, then it can also be called as art.
