22 November - 22 December 2013, Project Room I
Equator Art Projects is proud to present a solo show by Wiyoga Muhardanto, a Bandung based artist known through his three-dimensional works which often include critiques and humours. In the recent years, Wiyoga's works play with signs in form of products or presence of objects which reflect consumerism culture of the urban society. Employing strategies of similarities of visual and surface characteristics of these objects, and separating function from form, Wiyoga's works play with perception/reception to deceive his audience.
Nothing Happens is the title of his latest installation. This time round, Wiyoga creates a fictional story that tells about certain domestic problems experienced by a husband-and-wife couple, with background of a kitchen. Instead of a kitchen's usual function as a place to cook, Wiyoga tries to build a drama (sad, happy, ironic, quarrels, etc) within this space by introducing several objects which he replicates, with details reduced, so that his story about the domestic problem is enveloped simply and unpretentiously.
