About The Artwork "In Memory"
Collage for El Venadito – Art Against Animal Abuse Exhibition. An image deconstruction from a photograph by Carl E. Akeley, “A Burchell’s Zebra at Rest in the African Terrain“, March 1909.
With the title “In Memory“, this collage is trying to tell us about the regret of losing something worth that we did not appreciate or take care about before. Red flames that emitting through the zebra’s body represent blood and human error in dealing with them and their family (Equidae).
Reflecting on the extinction of Quagga, a subspecies of plain zebra, in the late of 19th century due to confusion caused by the indiscriminate use of the term “Quagga” for any zebra. The true Quagga was hunted to extinction without this being realized until many years later. When the Quagga mare at Amsterdam Zoo died on 12 August 1883, it was not realized that she was the very last of her kind (source: The Quagga Project).

World Collage Day is a day to celebrate collage. The first World Collage Day was launched by Kolaj Magazine on May 12, 2018. Then it’s celebrated every year on every second Saturday of May.
Last year, I had my first experience celebrating World Collage Day by participating some workshops organized by Societat Barcelonina de Collage. You can read my stories here in my personal blog.

“World Collage Day is about artists connecting across borders against a global context of entrenchment and separation. And the day is about an art medium that excels at bringing different things together to create new forms and new ways of thinking.We created World Collage Day because we wanted to honor this community of artists and to remind the world what a spirit of cooperation, mutual support, and creativity can look like..” -Kolaj Magazine
Organized by collage.id, the Indonesian Collage Collective, World Collage Day will be also celebrated in Indonesia with some events in 11 cities around Indonesia, participated by local and international collage artists; and for sure by public. My collages will be also exhibited here in 6 cities: Semarang, Sidoarjo, Cianjur, Sukabumi, Batu-Malang, and Makassar.
Here the event schedule and information for all 11 cities:
This year, I am participating in the World Collage Atlas project, initiated by Coupee, the Belgian collage collective. The project invited all collage artist around the world to make collage from an original antique World Atlas ‘Patria’, published just before WW2 in 1939 by ‘De Dag’ (dutch for ‘The Day’) in Antwerp, Belgium.
Then, 183 collage artists already confirmed to participate and 366 original pages was sent. I had opportunity to make collage from Java and Sumatra island map, page 250-251. All original collaged pages will be exhibited in May 11-19th at Verbeke Foundation in Kemzeke, Belgium. After that, they want to make the atlas travel to other exhibitions all over the world. It will be so great if I can see them in Barcelona!
I am participating in the Paste Up! The first International Collage Festival, based in Mexico City. The festival will be held until May 18th. Two of my collages will be exhibited at Casa Equis, one of 7 festival’s venues.
