Adek Dimas is a student from Java, Indonesia. His project involved taking paper casts of heads, hands and other parts of the body that are necessary to make an installation. His idea is to collaborate with local residents of Bangalore of varying religious backgrounds, professions and age. The concept behind the project is an attempt to show the attitude of the social phenomenon that is increasingly heating up these days. Religion becomes one of the things that is used as a divisive weapon for unity and harmony between individuals and society, and so does the difference in age, profession and position. Bearing that in mind, Adek took this project in hand. He intends to optimize his artwork to realize the mission of his work- which is to provide benefits for others. He tries to unite all these differences into one symbolic artwork. In his words: “With a work of art, I try to offer the harmonization of peace, goodness, beauty and equality among individuals with one another”

“I am also here in 1.Shanthiroad studio as an artist in residence, as part of the Interviewing the Equator-the Biennale Jogja XI, which takes place in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, will work its way around the equator, a zone designated as the area between the Tropic of Cancer (latitude 23°27′ north) and the Tropic of Capricorn (latitude 23°27′ south).  Biennale Jogja will look further towards the future, open up new perspectives and develop confrontations that engage convention and the establishment by examining similar situations all over the world. The discourse of contemporary art has become very dynamic, but we still notice that the dichotomy of centre and periphery remains very strong. There is the need to identify new opportunities and seek out more valuable meaning in a biennale event.
