Literature:

Ivan Sagita was born in Malang and studied art in Yogyakarta at a fine arts school, Sekolah Menengah Seni Rupa and Sekolah Tinggi Seni Rupa Indonesia. An artist blessed with an immense imagination and the latitude of creation, Sagita has developed his own distinctive Surrealist expression in art. His incisive works explore the contradictions and absurdities of life, in particular that of Javanese social-culture values.

Cows are often featured in his sculptures because of their importance in the Javanese culture. The animal is referenced in well-known Indonesian proverbs like ‘sapi perahan’ (literal translation: milking cows) to allude to victims of manipulation. The illusionary quality of 2 Sapi precisely addresses this form of deception, where visual clarity becomes obscured. The cows are depicted with long folds of skin that resemble curtains, another important motif in Sagita’s oevure –a device which separates the dimension of emptiness from the world of the living.

伊凡·萨吉塔出生在马朗,曾就读于日惹市的一所美术学校、在印度尼西亚的塞科拉·梅农加·塞尼鲁帕和塞科拉·廷吉·塞尼鲁帕学习艺术。作为一个有着无限想象力和创作自由的艺术家,萨吉塔在艺术上逐渐形成了自己独特的超现实主义表现风格。他作品敏锐的探索到了生活的矛盾和荒诞,尤其是爪哇社会文化价值观。

牛在爪哇文化中的标志性,牛的元素经常出现在他的雕塑中。这种动物在印尼著名的谚语“sapi perahan”(字面意思:挤牛奶的奶牛)中被提及,暗指被操纵的受害者。《两头牛》的视错觉正好呈现了这种欺骗形式,即视觉清晰度变得模糊。牛被描绘成长褶皱的皮肤,像是窗帘,装置是另一个重要的元素出现在萨吉塔的作品里,它将空虚的维度与生活世界分隔开来。
