Strategic Presentation: Sculpture, Luz and Illusion

LUZ SERIES #3, clay, 400 x 400 x 300 cm, 2009

It's Eddi Prabandono's solo exhibit at SIGIarts, on display untill August 10, 2009.

The following blurb and image are taken with permission from SIGIarts' fans page on facebook.

About 10 tons of clay were brought in from Yogyakarta to SIGIarts, Jakarta, couple days ago. The tons of clay were wrapped in hundreds black plastic bags, 10 kilos each. The local material of Godean village, Yogyakarta, was made to build a giant sculpture within the exhibition space of SIGIarts, a sculpture of Luz Miyagi Prabandono's head. The clay sculpture is 4 by 4 by 3 meter, the first site-specific project in SIGIarts.
