Foreword and The Artists




Goto first page

Fullscreen
Nomads are constantly on the move. They are seekers, movers, wanderers. Identity Nomads do the same, redefining themselveson their journey.
Our identity is the result of constant negotiations with the world around us, the beliefs we adopt or leave behind and the challenges we encounter along the way. The sense of belonging to a group, a religion, a tradition is no longer a safe-haven, but becomesfrayed by the introduction of global ideas and concepts. Globalization, urbanization, internationalization - life as we knew it has come apart and, at best, is reconstructed in segments, some from right where we are, others from across the globe. Migration,religion, ideology and tradition arbitrarily mingle and give birth to new beliefs.Indonesian artists Daniel Kho, Teguh Ostenrik and Ito Joyoatmojo, German artists Lili Voigt and Odo Rumpf and Singaporeanpainter Irene S.M. Lee have embarked on a quest to explore and investigate this multitude of influences on their own identit.As much as their artworks differ in material and style, they singularly reflect what constructs or undermines the artists sense of whothey are as individuals, in a society or as part of a nation. By inquiring into the nature of stereotypes and examining symbols of race, religion or gender, they question their own set of beliefs and their place in a world of shifting paradigms. Rapid transformations in societies the world over have become catalysts for the need to constantly re-examine ourselves. These Identity Nomads navigate cultures, belief systems and traditions, they find themselves striving for mutual understanding and acceptanceOnce the customary boundaries loosen their grip, the self becomes a construct, changing constantly as a response to anever-changing world. The once complete and coherent identity rooted in tradition and customs is replaced by fragments taken from ideas across the globe.The artists unmask this global identity crisis by examining their own lives and their relationship with the very things that used to strengthen them: religion, race, ideology, tradition, philosophy. For example: Living in a foreign country might not only present new insights into another lifestyle but also make us reflect on our own beliefs. e can accept or discard that which is different.It is a perilous yet enticing journey. It is a journey that requires courage to face what we find along the way and what we find withius.The exhibition confronts us with the artists struggles as each explores his or her own take on identity. With uncompromisingcandidness these artists tell their stories. Some might contradict, some might please, some might puzzle. But all of them areauthentic. And all of them will keep moving. For some, this search is a chance to add value to their identity and self.In a world of multiple cultures and beliefs, the artists navigate through the unknown, dealing with their own complexity of being through painting, sculpture, or video installation. The language of self-expression does not know restrictions unless we form them. It is a language which grows stronger with conviction, knowledge and truth. Identity Nomads are on their way. Seeking. Learning. Sharing. Laughing.The visitors of the exhibition are invited to examine what is presented to them and what this means for their own life’s journey.

When Daniel Kho asked me if I could imagine organizing an international exhibition with Teguh Ostenrik, Lili Voigt, Odo Rumpf and Ito Joyoatmojo in Asia and Europe under the motto "Identity Nomads", I did not have to think about it for long. With Daniel Kho and Teguh Ostenrik, I have already organized several exhibitions in my gallery; I very much appreciate their artistic work both insculpture and in painting, as well as Teguh's commitment to nature. I was familiar with the often disturbing art of photography and the photorealistic drawings of Ito Joyoatmojo, the innovative digital photo and video works of Lili Voigt, and the extraordinary andimaginative scrap metal sculptures of Odo Rumpf from the media and as a visitor to various exhibitions. In Jakarta Singaporeancalligraphy artist and global citizen Irene S.M. Lee joined the exhibition. I immediately found the idea of a joint intercultural project with these six artists, each with a distinctive strong own language, to be very exciting! On the other hand, the question of identity as the daughter of an Indonesian and a German also plays an important role in my own life.The development of identity in recent years, both nationally and internationally, has been expanding continuously.Growing globalization is shaping our identity and how we define ourselves, not just though our gende, the influence of our familyof origin, our religious world view and our social environment. The rapid development of international networking in almost all areas has made the worldwide availability of influences and characteristics of all cultures possible.Through the use and offerings of digital media and social networks, we are constantly confronted with different mentalities, value systems and traditions. As a result,conscious and unconscious perception, evaluation and acceptance are a continuous process. The question of who we are, the question of our identity, therefore arises for each of us almost every day anew.For some time now, we have been experiencing worldwide how, in the digital media world, personal and geographical borders seem to dissolve easily, while, in contrast, new or already dissolved borders are being erected again in the real world. Examples of this are the refugee movement, Brexit, or the shift toward a nationally oriented policy in various countries. Such situations challenge and overtax our own understanding of identity and this uncertainty often leads to rejection, exclusion and intolerance.A universal definition of identity is therefore difficult to put into words today due to the variety of dferent influencing factors andforms of a definition of the self. In times of social upheaval, howeve, the visual arts play an important role in questioning socialdevelopments, offering new perspectives, providing a mirror and stimulating discussions. Identity Nomads therefore want to show, as artists, how the influences of diferent cultures have enriched their lives and creative work.In this interactive project, this group of artists, consisting of two German, three Indonesian and one Singaporean artist, looks not only at the question of their personal identity, but also at the different forms that identity can have today. Each artist offers his or her own identity journey as a basis for thinking, sharing and reflecting for everyone who is ready for it.A journey that is long from coming to an end.

When Indonesian artist Daniel Kho decided to return to his native Bali after studying art in Germany and building a reputation there and in Spain, he started contemplating about the essence of his own identity. In the process he became friends with Teguh Ostenrik and Ito Joyoatmojo - two Indonesian artists who spent half of their careers abroad. They too, reflected on their identity and being.It was only consequential that this situation influenced their artistic practices and thinking In the pre-internet era mobility was an artistic strategy to keep discovering, seeking, inventing.As these artists worked and grew, their art became more urgent and deliberate. This is how the exhibition Identity Nomads was eventually born. Daniel Kho, Teguh Ostenrik, Ito Joyoatmojo, Odo Rumpf, Lili Voigt and Irene S.M. Lee – all artists who spend most of their time traveling between countries, even continents, joined hands to find new discourse and patterns in the unknown andunfamiliar.The exhibition itself is a nod to its title and intentions: It opens in Malang, Bali and later travels to other places in Indonesia, then on to Singapore and Germany. While presenting a visualization of the nomadic mindset, it also abounds in artistic languages withpainting, photography, sculpture, mix-media installation and video art.Identity Nomads is the multifaceted and complicated expression of the artists personal experiences of national and cultural identities and of themselves. Daniel Kho searches for the common factors in human nature. Odo Rumpf uses juxtaposition of twotechnological products to express his bewilderment with conventions and cultural frontiers. Lili Voigt can see the inseparableprocess of re-construction of a nation or a nation state in man created objects. Teguh Ostenrik presents elephant sculptures as a nomadic group thriving on mutual support and trust. Ito Joyoatmojo seeks recognition in the mundane and Irene S.M. Lee examines her relationship with her Chinese heritage.In their artwork the artists corroborate that by being aware of the latest global political and economic dynamic like migration, Brexit or climate change, we observe how people everywhere in the world become more intolerant towards foreigners and minorities.Yet some people seem to not be afraid of what is different from or strange to them. The personal nature of the art works ofIdentity Nomads invite the observer to examine and reflect on their own attitudes Yet art deliberately denies answers and aims to encourage the removal of boundaries instead.Congratulations to the artists who have given their experiences shape and body, so that others can share them with them.
