"My artwork depicts my own experiences and probably those of many people in the creative industry as well: the constant pursuit of deadlines for days on end without sleep. Despite the body's powerlessness, the brain continues to function while conscious – hallucinating, and having random thoughts all over."
Rakhmat Jaka is an illustrator and graphic designer living and working in South Borneo, Indonesia. His works are inspired by various Indonesian cultures, such as film, music, advertising, and visual elements that he often encounters in his everyday life.
Exhibition curatorial statement
Having sentience, consciousness, and the capacity to dream is what makes us unique beings.
Essentially, what we experience in our life determines how we perceive our future, create memories, and how we dream. Without our memories, genetics, and history, we cease to exist. It's a life cycle that gives us the ability to evolve as humans and as living creatures. Even the way we dream, or even daydream, is part of what makes us who we are.
This print exhibition features the interpretations of dreams by 14 (local and international) visual artists, elaborating on their own dreams to create dream manifestations that become reality. These dreams run deep and wild in the artists' subconscious minds, influencing their art and shaping them into unique artists with distinct visions and styles. The unseen and intangible things that they’ve experienced externally and in their minds become the visuals they create outside reality, giving birth to art once unimaginable.
