Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce Hopes & Dialogues in Rumah Kijang Mizuma, a group exhibition curated by Hermanto Soerjanto featuring selected artists who have undertaken residency at Rumah Kijang Mizuma in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Rumah Kijang Mizuma is a co-working studio and artist residency space founded by Executive Director of Mizuma Galleries, Sueo Mizuma, curator Hermanto Soerjanto, and artist Angki Purbandono in 2014. With the vision of having a space endorsing a cultural exchange that helps broaden the artists’ views and inspirations, the space was set in the southern part of the city of Yogyakarta, a bustling focal point amidst the regional art scene. The word kijang in Indonesian means ‘deer’, but here, as spontaneously conceived by artist Agan Harahap, it stands for Kerja sama Indonesia Jepang(Cooperation between Indonesia and Japan). As a co-working space, Rumah Kijang Mizuma hosts the studio of Angki Purbandono, office of PAPs (Prison Art Programs), and the artist residency studios. To date, Rumah Kijang Mizuma has hosted 22 artists, including 7 Indonesian artists and 15 Japanese artists, with residency duration ranging from 2 weeks to 9 months. Since its early days, Rumah Kijang Mizuma is also supported by Dian Ariyani, Ridwan ‘Kriyip’ Fatkurodhin, Mutia Bunga, Agan Harahap, and Andy ‘Memet’ Zulfan (Metzdub) among others who help to run the space on daily basis.
Hopes & Dialogues in Rumah Kijang Mizuma will feature new works by Indonesian artists Agan Harahap, Angki Purbandono, Fatoni Makturodi, Gilang Fradika, PAPs (Prison Art Programs), and Yoga Mahendra; alongside Japanese artists Aiko Yamamoto, Eguchi Ayane, Kumazawa Mikiko, Okada Hiroko, Okamoto Ellie, Ryuki Yamamoto, Tsutsui Shinsuke, and Yuna Ogino; with a curatorial focus on how their experiences with the art scenes, cultures, and social lives of Yogyakarta and Rumah Kijang Mizuma had influenced their views on art, art-making, and life.
