PETAMU Project

In the "PETAMU" project, we use the Malay language, which is commonly used in Malaysia and the Indonesian archipelago, as a guide to open an alternative path of viewing maps. In this different map viewing, we will combine the practice of OCAC and NML in Indonesia and Malaysia Peninsula from 2016 to 2017, or through the artists’ residency, interview and artwork, as well as the researchers/curators’ cooperative translation, interview and research, etc. As the different travellers’ viewpoint found on the same map, the diverse result of works and documents were accumulated and recomposed to specific spaces on the map. By revisiting the "window" of different spaces as a reference to the "border" on the map, the viewer can enter and exit different imaginary contexts through the spatial interface. As a result, the original imagination of artists will be re-aggregated under a specific spatial context, and will initiates the agency of map regarding "locality."

    As we face an ever urgent and uncertain future, we temporarily suspend the current administrative, bureaucratic, and relocation tasks at hand to do what we do best: that of making the best artwork that we can; for this is the true binding force and DNA makeup of Open-Contemporary Art Center (OCAC).

    Two Outstanding Tilapia Fish

    Today, we have almost given up the words “genius” or “natural talent” to describe artists. Artists also don’t use splendid techniques or unique literacy or theology to mark their characters. In examples of avant-garde, where “everyone is artists”, or “art is life, life is art”, not only expand the boundary of the arts, but also speaks of the dying of “geniuses”.

CURRENT EVENT

We invite six essential art spaces from Indonesia, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia, which includes artist residency organizations, galleries and artist-based spaces. The common issue is that how the conditions of different...
