STEPHANIE MISA

BEHIND THE TERRAIN
Studio Kalahan, Jogjakarta Indonesia
22. November - 8. December 2016


Stephanie Misa’s obsession with the kronjot belies not only a fascination with an object of transport, but with the ingenuity behind the gained mobility— the ability to multiply limited real estate into a towering behemoth (on a motorcycle)—and the different facets of exchange and commerce mobilized by adapting shape and form to necessity. Her installation explores an appropriated re-appropriation of the saddle bag- kronjot and links it to the reconfiguration of products for the consumerist market—especially within Indonesia’s large furniture-making industry— stripped of purpose but pumped with style.

The sculpture is made of steel, aluminium pipes, and javanese teakwood.
