Exhibition & Workshop        : Kedai Kebun Forum



Cities are ideologically to signify the mobility of meaning comprehended by the residents of a distinctive area instead of the geographical significance.


Yogyakarta (Jogja is the nick name) embodies in a stereotyped predicate as the cultural and educational city. The identity of the city is on the move between two pulling sides of carrying out the tradition of palatial life and the modernity of delivering the mission as an educational city. Its modernity goes parallel with the other cities. The local government sets construction, relocation, and infrastructure of the city continuously. Unpredictably, it becomes more interesting and denser.


Bringing cities to mind truly evokes emotions; happy, loving, hateful, longing, pitiful, resentful, pleasant, and so on. Cities are endless topics to discuss with.


The activity is not about picturing Yogyakarta from “the sky” but getting close to it to an intimate corner, catching the city movement of a shorter distance that is 1 Km Radius from a spot taken by the participants in the media of photography, video or film. It is a short distance observation on the growth or stagnation of the city with all its paradoxes. It is such a tracing map of Yogyakarta performed by the city formers merely regarded as completing figures and numbers on the reading of it. The outcomes are out of trace; amazing stories hidden or invisible since they are not represented by those figures and numbers. The result is sharing knowledge and experience on situations, conditions, and moments happening in a particular area as educational and sportive recreation.


Firstly, KKF invites about 50 participants of different ages, professions, sexes, origins, and even sexual orientation to participate in the activity. They do not have to master technically on photography or film-making and there are no requirements to use particular camera or technique. Thus, anyone is freely permitted to join it. The only binding requirement is that a participant should be a resident of the city for at least 2 years. Public is welcome to respond to the exhibition. Anyone may take a part by sending photos or video in relation to the theme for the completion of the exhibition. One may pick up the taken photos, photo clippings in magazines or newspapers, or from photo albums at home.

This is a response to the momentum of birthdays as a continuous custom, to whoever experiences them, and which often provokes humor and is practically unique.


Along with the development of technology, mobile phones, internet, and other communication media serves as media to communicate greetings, but the responses are influenced by every individual background, as basis of behavior and action.


This video tries to represent a little bit about the behavior and response to a birthday, greeting after greeting, the attitudes shown, and activities practiced as an important moment, that makes a birthday very precious.

“A great nation is one that appreciates the services of its heroes,” said the late Ir. Soekarno. Now, it is the moment to reveal the heroic tales of our heroes through several media and ways.


One of the most magnificent monuments in Jogja is the Vredeburg Fort, standing strong, which houses dioramas about the processes of our local heroes in achieving the freedom of eternity.


As a visual media, we don’t want to seem pretentious to love the nation. The existing visualization is very explicit for everyone to accept, even for a young child. We tried not to show absurdity, which the audience would need to interpret.

B1 is one of the terms for dishes made from dog meat. Jogja itself has many similar terms, such as: tongseng jamu, sengsu, and kicik. There are many warung stalls and restaurants selling these dishes. But for some people who consume this food don’t yet know about the process of how the dogs were treated to being served on the table. And this documentary film is an illustration from a friend’s story of his/her experience and love of eating dog meat.

Are you comfortable with designed commodities for the collective comfort? Several conformities in social life had verbally been made, with the aim to create a harmonious life for the best interests of everyone. When we find that efforts in doing so were not satisfactory from one perspective, a new agreement, often one-sided, often provoked emotional actions.

The development of fashion continues to take place, including in Jogja, the imported clothing business is a part of that. As time goes by, more and more people talk about it, look for it, even when at the start, and even until now, there are sometimes still negative thoughts, about this business. However, we cannot deny that the imported clothes or ‘abul-abul’ has an important role in the development of fashion in Jogja the last couple of years.

0 Point          : myself


The 0 point in this video was myself, therefore when I am at a location, that is where my 0 point is. This video was a simple research result, on 20 respondents I met by asking the same question, “what do you think about Javanese sensuality?” It was easier for me to visualize their thoughts through referring to nouns. But many respondents also mentioned characteristics such as klemak-klemek or being sluggish, unggah-ungguh or having knowledge of stratified behaviour, and even the idea of stillness. This video clearly does not represent the meaning of Javanese sensuality itself. Therefore, this video also re-questions my respondents, the audience enjoying this video, about “what do you think of as Javanese sensuality?”

“…as a city with many visitors who come and go, the community actually has a thirst for entertainment…”

“…a good opportunity to return the people’s enthusiasm to go to the cinemas again…”

“…very enthusiastic for people to go to the cinema when Jogja does not have a representative cinema…”

“…to revitalize the cinema…”

“…to force investors to make cinemas…”

“…the location should be adjoined to the mall, hotel…”

“…can the cinema persevere…”

“…next time please play the film elsewhere, not at Permata, it was scary…”

One day in Jogja, a mass festival of massacre turned 180 degrees round when the despicable killers returned the souls they took away from the good vulnerable beings. A touching story of a high level magical technique, that changed cruelty to goodness. For the beloved goats and cows, I hope someday you won’t have to go through such a terrible life and death.

                                      Housing Complex, Kotagede)


A quiet housing complex…

Only concrete houses talking

Far from warmth besides

The warmth of the sun

And artificial objects

There’s nothing locally traditional

But this is in Jogjakarta


Knock on that house door

Who knows it will never

Ever open

Or perhaps we will never know

The contents of that house


Or we have once entered

and was reluctant to make A DOOR!

I edited Semrawut (chaotic) because I thought it was easy. Why? Because Jogja is very, very chaotic. What is semrawut? Semrawut is a crowded situation. If I were living inJakarta, I could have taken the picture anywhere. Yes…because JAKARTA is very chaotic. The chaos in JAKARTA is 5 times larger than in JOGJA. Mbak Nadia (my teacher) and I took the shot in…? You can see it for yourself later on he..he…he…mmmm…Okay, that’s all. Bye…bye…

The reason I chose this theme was because sometimes I feel stuck, also because the smoke disturbs me, people stuck in traffic jams, in several shoots you can see graffiti on the walls, of which many you can still see in Jogja. Although in Jogja the police has tried to prevent it from happening, but still there are many graffitis. The main point of this film is that there has already been so much destruction, similar to our custom. There were even some chaotic situations in our custom. I hope that people will realize for themselves that the chaos in Jogja is a custom we don’t need.
