Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - What’s On Baj -

Be­ing one of the big­gest art events in In­done­sia, Bazaar Art Jakarta (BAJ) has a vi­sion to make Jakarta the cen­ter of con­tem­po­rary arts in Asia. Along with this vi­sion in mind, sev­eral pro­grams are de­signed to bring peo­ple and art closer to­gether, among them is Edu Art, col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Bazaar Art Jakarta and Ga­nara Art Space a con­cept on art ed­u­ca­tion for chil­dren, teenagers and adults to pro­mote.

Held from Au­gust 26th - 28th, 2016 at The Ritz-carl­ton Jakarta, Pa­cific Place, Edu Art will in­volve stu­dents, teach­ers, artists and vis­i­tors of BAJ 2016 and Pa­cific Place Mall as par­tic­i­pants. One of their pro­grams namely School Art Tour and Ac­tiv­ity is de­signed for el­e­men­tary to ju­nior high stu­dents to ob­serve the in­sti­tu­tion that con­sis­tently teaches art to its stu­dents. Art teach­ers can also join the Work­shop for Teach­ers ti­tled Mari Men­ga­jar Kre­atif. The pur­pose of the work­shop is to ed­u­cate teach­ers about creative meth­ods in arts so that later on they can im­ple­ment these meth­ods in class.

On the last two days, all pro­grams will be es­pe­cially ad­dressed to pub­lic. Ev­ery day there will be four ses­sions, start­ing from art tour to art classes for chil­dren, teens and adults. Eeach of which will be men­tored by fa­mous world­wide names in con­tem­po­rary art. For ex­am­ple, the mu­ral work­shop for chil­dren and teens is as­sisted by Sanchia T. Hamid­jaja, while cre­at­ing wayang pup­pets for chil­dren is men­tored by Ke­mal Eze­dine and a 3-D Art train­ing by graf­fiti artist, Dar­botz.

ike a hot is­sue, art’s pres­ence is now ubiq­ui­tous. on the mon­i­tor of smart­phones, be­ing the part of daily con­ver­sa­tion, dis­cussed in con­ven­tional me­dia, and also pre­sented on your din­ing ta­ble, served in the plate, a del­i­cacy ready to be en­joyed. it’s what you will dis­cover later in the big­gest premium art fair ever held in in­done­sia, Bazaar art jakarta (Baj) 2016. for four days in Baj, Chef yann Bernard le­jard from the ritz-carl­ton Bahrain will be back to present his de­light­ful and artsy cre­ation dur­ing the pop-up restau­rant event at the ball­room of the ritz-carl­ton jakarta, Pa­cific Place.

Dur­ing the pre­vi­ous Baj 2015, Chef yann Bernard le­jard stole vis­i­tor’s hearts for the first time with his en­chant­ing edi­ble art. like a painter mae­stro, chef yann will again change the empty plate to be his art medium filled with color play, form and com­po­si­tion, also com­bi­na­tion of har­mo­nious and com­ple­mented fla­vor. a flaw­less mar­riage of art and culi­nary, it is also par­al­lel with the artis­tic at­mos­phere that will sur­round the vibe of Baj 2016 soon. in­cis­ing var­i­ous col­ors onto his empty plate, with full pre­ci­sion the chef sprin­kles sauce and put on riga­toni or ribs onto the plate, re­sult­ing in not only an ap­pe­tiz­ing dish to spoil our taste buds but also a beau­ti­ful mas­ter­piece for the eyes. truly an en­joy­ment for your senses.

his achieve­ment last year makes the pres­ence of this 41-year-old chef is re­ally an­tic­i­pated in Baj 2016 by both lo­cal art and culi­nary con­nois­seurs, es­pe­cially by imag­in­ing the next sur­prise that will be pre­pared by the chef who used to work for alain Du­casse and who has un­count­able ex­pe­ri­ence in var­i­ous Miche­lin-starred restau­rants.

to com­ple­ment the ex­hi­bi­tion of won­der­ful culi­nary cre­ation by Chef yann, a riv­et­ing venue has also been pre­pared. With Won­ders of Weav­ing (WOW) as the theme, this pop-up restau­rant will be dec­o­rated with weaved ap­pli­ca­tion through­out its in­te­rior and fur­ni­ture. WOW kitchen it­self is a cre­ation of lim Ma­sulin to­gether with some cel­e­brated in­done­sian ar­chi­tects and de­sign­ers such as Budi Pradono, heru M. Prase­tyo and more.

Won­ders of Weav­ing started from Byo liv­ing cam­paign to re-pro­mote weav­ing art, which in fact has been an in­sep­a­ra­ble life el­e­ment of in­done­sian so­ci­ety. the trace of weav­ing method can be seen from the cloth sling which is com­monly used to carry baby to wo­ven rat­tan that is usu­ally ap­plied on fur­ni­ture or bags. in­spired by this phe­nom­e­non, it is lead­ing to the devel­op­ment of weav­ing art idea that went fur­ther and later re­al­ized in the Won­ders of Weav­ing.

as a re­minder for the wealth of in­done­sian crafts­man­ship, Won­ders of Weav­ing has gone through quite a long jour­ney since its first in­cep­tion in 2008. WOW have par­tic­i­pated in the World expo Mi­lan and Who’s next Paris, and now is ready for a come­back to in­done­sia to ex­hibit ex­traor­di­nar­ily new art­work in in­done­sia.
