Platform 3 dengan bangga mempersembahkan pameran Zico Albaiquni – Seke. Pameran ini merupakan bagian dari program perdana kami yang bernama Focus. Gagasan utama dari program focus ini adalah memfasilitasi seniman yang akan berpameran di ruang kami dengan proses diskusi, sehingga diharapkan menghasilkan perkembangan artistik dari pusat perhatian seorang seniman yang akan berpameran terhadap suatu topik atau tema.

Selama lebih dari tiga minggu, Zico melihat, mengamati dan meresapi lingkungan di sekitar ruang pamer kami. Ia menemukan berbagai aspek khas yang berada di sekitar ruang Platform3. seperti perkampungannya, kuburan, lapangan olahraga yang dijadikan tempat bermain juga tempat juga dijadikan tempat menjemur pakaian, sawah, hingga akhirnya ‘seke’*, tempat dimana warga berkumpul mengambil satu atau dua ember air jernih untuk keperluan rumah tangga, mandi, berwudhu, minum, atau hanya sekedar beristirahat sejenak.

Proses yang dijalani zico juga berbeda dari seniman yang pernah berpameran di Platform 3 sebelumnya. Zico membuat format ‘open studio’ selama masa pembuatan karyanya. ia menggunakan obyek temuan dari lingkungan sekitar Platform3 seperti potongan kayu bekas, kursi, pedestal, kipas angin, dan lainnya. Semua benda yang posisinya dan bentuknya selalu ia ubah setiap saat, hingga kunjungan teman-teman yang membuat kemungkinan baru karena terjadinya dialog yang cair antara seniman, karya dan juga pengamat.

Platform 3 proudly present an exhibition of Zico Albaiquni – Seke. This exhibition is part of our inaugural program called Focus. The main idea of the program is to facilitate the artist who will be exhibiting in our space with a process of discussion, and expected to produce the artistic development of the exhibiting artist, on a topic or theme .

For more than three weeks, Zico saw, observed and absorbed the environment around our space. He founded a variety of particular aspects around the space of Platform 3, it’s village, cemetery, sport field that use as a place to play also as a place where people dry their clothes, rice field, until finally ‘seke‘ * , a place where people gather to take one or two buckets of clear water for household use, for bathing, takingwudhu, drink, or just rest for a while.

Zico processed a different way from other artists who had exhibited at Platform 3 before. He made ​​an ‘open studio’ format during the making of his work. He used found objects from the neighborhood such as pieces of used wood, chair from our gallery space, pedestal, electric fan, and others stuff. All objects whose position and shape he always change at any time, and visits from a lot of friends that created new possibilities between the artist, the works and also the viewer.
