Deskripsi

Karya- karya Nadya Savitri berangkat dari wacana poskolonial yang berhubungan dengan gagasan tentang “tubuh ideal”. Dalam konteks masyarakat Indonesia, gagasan tentang keidealan tubuh juga telah terkonstruksi oleh sejarah kolonial: Kita cenderung melihat kulit putih, hidung mancung dan proporsi tubuh yang tinggi dan langsing, misalnya, sebagai ‘acuan’ kecantikan. Nadya bermaksud mempertanyakan kembali konstruksi itu dengan menghadirkan objekobjek berbahan keramik porselen. Berbagai karakter visual yang ada pada karya-karya ini, termasuk kualitas permukaan, bentuk objek, karakter dekorasi dan warna glasir, dimaksudkan untuk memancing identifikasi kecantikan yang terkonstruksi oleh kolonialisasi dan globalisasi.

About the Project

Works of Nadya Savitri departed from post-colonial discourse associated with the notion of “ideal body”. In the context of the Indonesian people, ideas about body ideals have also been constructed by colonial history: We tend to see white skin, long nose and the proportion of high and slender body, for example, as a ‘reference’ beauty. Nadya intend to question the construction that by presenting the objects made of ceramic porcelain. Various existing visual character of these works, including surface quality, shape objects, character and color glaze decoration, intended to lure the identification of beauty constructed by colonization and globalization.
