Patterns of Everyday, Pavilion & Jatiwangi Art Factory (2019)
Two-week collaborative exchange residency in Indonesia through the West Yorkshire West Java Cooperative Movement (WJWYCM) project. The residency took place at Jatiwangi Art Factory (JAF) a former ceramic tile factory located in the post-industrial rural west Java village of Jatisura.
Building connections between communities in West Java and West Yorkshire by initiating a new international textiles project led by young people through a series of workshops at JAF with a mixed-sex group of young people, aged 13 to 17, from local schools.
Workshops focused on people, community and local culture–developing patterns and pictorial languages representing daily life. A visual census gathered together drawn objects of personal value (mobile phones, cups, clothes, homes, shoes). Journeys from home to school were mapped through walking and video and then developed into collective artworks. Movement, sound and experimental drawing exercises responded to place and resulted in large scale wall drawings.
