“I love Indonesia but hate to see the behavior of the people running it” perhaps summarizes the theme of this vector art exhibition. Being born and living in Indonesia can inspire a love for the country, but at the same time feelings of hate and frustration can arise when seeing all the things that are not right that happen here. Conflicting feelings like these are not always easy to express. Most of us who do not play a role in decision making can only grumble to ourselves, then slowly try to adapt to the situation.
Vector art is a global product of urban culture. In Indonesia, vector art has quickly developed over the past decade. The emergence of the site VektorJunkie (VJ) through the electronic publication (e-zine), Vektorika, is one of the pioneering examples in popularizing vectors to the Indonesian public. Now, besides using conventional print media such as books or posters, vector applications have penetrated various kinds of media such as t-shirts, designer toys, accessories, skateboards, electronic gadget skins or enclosures, murals, wallpaper, interactive media, and so on. This exhibition invites several vector artists from Indonesia and abroad whose vector pieces have been appreciated by many groups. A discussion and meeting with the artists will be held on May 28, 2011 at Serambi Salihara.
