Suara Akar Ilalang | May 25 – July 25
Five female painters from different generations of Kelompok Akar Ilalang are exhibiting their works at Griya Santrian Gallery. These female artists who grew up in the strict Javanese culture with its ideology of patriarchy had experienced many gender inequalities. Although brought up in that culture, these women don’t openly rebel against male dominance. They just express it symbolically with a witty parody. They say that they are still Javanese women who live with the norms and philosophies of patriarchal society. The fine art is just a space to “sound”. For them, painting is a career and also a medium to share their thoughts and to express their imaginations and fantasies, even as a therapy to heal the inner wounds.
