Julia B.'s insight:
UNE ACTION DE GROUPE INSIDE OUT POUR COMMÉMORER LA MARCHE 

 

Le 3 Décembre 1983 était célébré le succès de la marche pour l’égalité et contre le racisme à  son arrivée à Paris.

 

Pour commémorer les 30 ans de cet événement,  une action de groupe Inside Out, le projet d'art global participatif initié par l’artiste JR, est organisée : 

Le 3 Décembre prochain, une rue de Lyon (ville d’origine des premiers marcheurs), sera recouverte de nombreux portraits d’hommes et de femmes qui défendent les valeurs de cette marche. [...]

Julia B.'s curator insight, October 30, 2013 8:59 AM

Share the Word is an art project led by photographer Spag and graffiti artist Seb Toussaint, set in different slums and low income neighbourhoods around the world. The first episode takes place in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Share The Word is the Outsiders Krew's first worldwide art project, mixing graffiti, photography and film, and using art to create bridges between cultures. The Krew chooses to work inside each neighbourhood for 3 to 5 weeks, and asks each household to give them one word that they want to express. Each word will then become the main feature of a spontaneously-painted mural by artist Seb Toussaint. Spag, as the Krew's photographer, works to illustrate the chosen words by capturing scenes of daily life and portraits of locals, telling the story of the neighbourhood through his art. The project also aims to get the local community involved by encouraging the children to paint and learn graffiti by giving art classes on the streets.

This video was shot by the Outsiders Krew in Kampung Bayur, a neighbourhood of East Jakarta, in Indonesia. In a little more than 3 weeks, 15 murals were painted with words chosen by the inhabitants. All the murals were painted in freestyle.

The words are: Assalamu'alaikum (peace be upon you), Bismillah (in the name of god), Banjir (flood), Kali Malang (name of a river), Merdeka (freedom), Horas (congratulations), Nabila (name of a child), Alif (name of a child), Kali Sunter (name of a river), Peace, Kampung Bayur (name of the neighbourhood), Pendopo (meeting place), Pulang Basamo (to come together), Makasih (thank you), Harmony.

Maiko & Geiko | Photographer: Arif Iqball

Maiko & Geiko | Photographer: Arif Iqball | Scoop Photography | Scoop.it

Outside Japan there is often a misunderstanding about the role of the Geisha and that misunderstanding comes from different literary and movie interpretations/fictionalization by non-Japanese at different points in history. The difficulty also comes from the inability to recognize/accept that female entertainers can exist in cultures without engaging in any form of sexual entertainment.

 

The historical city of Kyoto, Japan is the true center of this floating world and home to five Kagai (literally flower towns, but specifically, performance districts) where you can see Geishas today. The oldest Kagai dates back to the fifteenth century and the tradition of the Geisha continues in Kyoto in the true manner and spirit as it has historically, where the women take pride in being “women of the mind” versus “women of the body”. By all local/Japanese definitions, these women are living art as well as the pinnacle of Japanese eloquence, good manners, style and elegance and are highly respected in Japanese society as artists. Some of their teachers have been labeled as “Living National Treasures” by the Japanese Government. The “Gei” of the Geisha itself means Art and “sha” means a person. Historically both men and women have been labeled Geisha although that word is seldom used and Geiko and Maiko (Apprentice Geiko) are the more appropriate forms of address.

 

There has been very little work done to photograph the artistic side of the Geiko and Maiko and my work is an effort to see them as living art and to be able to portray them in both formal and informal settings. Behind the painted face is really a teenager/young woman working very hard through song, dance, music, and witty conversation to make the customers of the tea houses escape from their world of stress to a world of art/humour/relaxation and laughter.

Most of this work was done in Medium Format to enable the viewer to eventually see and feel the larger photograph itself as art and I hope that this broader work can shed a new light to the understanding of the Maiko and Geiko and bring respect to them as artists from the non-Japanese viewer.

Ludruk | Photographer: Diego Verges

Ludruk | Photographer: Diego Verges | Scoop Photography | Scoop.it

Ludruk is a theatrical genres of East Java in Indonesia. It's a form of traditional performance presented by a troupe of actors on a stage, re-telling the life stories of everyday people and their struggles.

 

Most of the characters were performed by male actors who take the roles of women, but more recently, the sketches and farces feature mostly contemporary domestic stories, and have become commercial entertainment popular with urban and rural working-class audiences. 

 

Diego Verges has produced a comprehensive photo essay on the Ludruk and as well as environmental portraits and scenes of these performers. Ludruk is a must-see for my readers as it merges portraiture, documentary and travel-ethnography photography, and also visually documents an art for that could well vanish in the years to come.  udiences

"Unsafe Journey. A woman is riding between the railway carriages of a local train heading north from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Her luggage is tucked under the carriage in front of her. It is the month of Ramadan, a fast which culminates in Eid-ul-Fitr, a three-day celebration. Tens of thousands of people leave the city to go to their home village and celebrate with their families. Trains are packed and many who fail to get tickets before they sell out or can't afford buying them at the black market ride on the roof of the train or, like this woman, finds a quiet spot between the carriages."
