卓可·佩奇克《爪哇傳統舞》1989 年作 油彩 畫布

Literature:

Djoko Pekik is a renowned painter who rose to prominence during the
tumultuous period of rebellion in Indonesia. Trained at the Akademi Seni Rupa
Indonesia (ASRI) in Yogyakarta, the works of Djoko Pekik was considered
amongst five of the best paintings across the nation in an exhibition organised
by LEKRA in 1964. Turbulent period in the political arena of Indonesia and
accusations of LEKRA to be in support of the communist party led to Djoko’s
unjustly imprisonment from 1965-1972 by association. Executed in 1989, the
present lot was created during his period of vacuum after being detained before
re-emerging to the public in 1990. Djoko’s works produced in the late 1980s to
1990s are amongst his most highly sought-after paintings for the unique theme
of social realism ablaze with the artist’s raw emotions transmitted onto canvas.
Amongst some of the works from this period is Djoko’s most famous 1 billion
painting, ‘Berburu Celeng’, executed in 1998.


This painting depicts a traditional Javanese dance, Tayuban, in which men take
turn to dance on stage with professional female dancers known as ledhek.
Here, the stage is decorated with janur kuning (young coconut leaves) indicative
of a special occasion, as the crowd stand amass in the background watching
the spectacle, a motif found in many of Djoko’s paintings. In the present lot,
the artist paid close attention in depicting the movement and curvature of
the dancers to create a dynamic composition and synergy between them. It
reveals an early stage of Djoko’s signature caricature that incorporates masked
figures echoing traditional Javanese topeng dance. The exaggerated pose of
the male’s jawline, arms, and torso, while exemplifying the complexity of the
dance movement alludes to the jester character in traditional performances. To
a certain extent this painting reflects Djoko’s cynicism towards the social reality
of his surroundings.
