DECONSTRUCTION OF A WALL

September 25 - October 25 2010opening: September 25 2010

Alia Swastika

In this particular exhibition today, Tintin explores the issues of borders and mobility. She uses the object of the wall as her point of departure. The wall is used to represent icons of geopolitical borders. All works in this exhibition result from thorough conceptual investigations on wall elements—door, window, floor, ceiling. These elements are perceived as forming the basic foundation of a space, but they tend to be static and unquestioned. They also contain meanings of geopolitical borders as enforced by political regimes.

Tintin Wulia has been exploring many media for her artwork, particularly installation and video works. Spatial and kinetic elements become an integral part of her works. She further re-questions her creative approaches by presenting interactive performances, thus opening up the process. In such explorations, the ephemerality of borders is juxtaposed with the seemingly-static wall elements. Tintin also plays with notions of control and regulation that have become such significant narratives in the discussions of geopolitical borders.
