"Myth | Mitos" by Kokok P Sancoko featuring Dedi D. Hermawan at Yogyakarta, Indonesia


A collaboration show by Kokok P Sancoko featuring Dedi D. Hermawan has opened on Wednesday, 7 April 2010 at 7:30 pm at Kedai Kebun Forum (KKF) in Yogyakarta Special life performance by Armada Racun and Koala band as well as DJ Soni and DJ Daniel.


This April 2010, Kedai Kebun Forum (KKF)'s gallery is managed by an artist, Kokok P. Sancoko, as his spatial experiment media. "I want to put some things, either the old things or new things that I just bought. KKF gallery is quite small, only 6 x 9 square meters.  This small space makes me a little bit different in treating it, compared to when I was offered to exhibit elsewhere. The difference, which is the most prominent when I think about this place, is like I was "forced" to make "only" one thing. Thinking simple is hard actually."


KKF is interested in Purwandhi Sancoko, thus the name listed on his identity card, because this artist nearly always leaves an empty space on each of his paintings and makes signals of "growing" on his 3 dimensions works. And then, KKF offers Kokok to do the experiment which combines both of them.


"I will explore grids," he said, besides putting things. "For me, the presence of flatness is a kind of solution of chaotic." Kokok P. Sancoko (b. 1974) usually manages canvas into to paint or manages things into to sculpt, but this time he manages an empty space. "I donít care, whether I am making installation or drawing, those predicates are not my business. The point is that the book about Bauhaus, which I found several times ago, helps me a lot to solve the deadlock in managing this small space".
