On Camera – An Exhibition by MES 56

MES 56 – Yogyakarta's Historic Group of Photographers in an Exhibition at BIASA ArtSpace Seminyak, Bali - December 16, 2010 through February 11, 2011.


(11/23/2010)

Established in Yogyakarta, Central Java, in 2002, MES 56 is committed to an exploratory and experimental approach to photography. Over the intervening years MES 56 has conducted a series of exhibitions, creative exchanges, workshops and the archival preservations of important Indonesian photography.

The current MES 56 exhibition in Bali - "On Camera" signifies an important phase in the collective's passage and forms part of a continuing discourse on contemporary art in Indonesia. The goal: introduce new approaches in the field of photography by positioning it in within the filed of arts and, at the same time, question the role of photography in presenting reality.

The Bali exhibition runs from 6 pm on December 16, 2010 until February 11, 2011 at the BIASA ArtSpace at Jalan Raya Seminyak No. 34, Kuta, Bali presenting works from the group that fundamentally criticizes our daily lives.

The images present photography as a medium to present ideas and imaginings; to play with reality through visual images that are humorous and never dramatized. At the same time, they question photography's role as a medium in the contemporary art world against the rapid development of technologies for producing visual images.

The group observes that photography has become a most democratic medium, available to the general public as imaging technology become less costly and easier to access.

The exhibition at BIASA ArtSpace explores ideas about the camera itself, often seen as only a tool in the hand of a technical craftsman. The works on exhibit focus on how a camera becomes a representation of how to perceive the world; a representation on "how to see." Each artist questions their own relationship with the camera, how they define photography and how they present basic questions while introducing new ideologies in photography.

As regards the development of technology, the camera artists demonstrate how easy it is to play with reality: re-create, manipulate, control and freeze moments. What is identified as "reality representation" itself, has transformed.
