Izal Batubara

Born in Jakarta, 1995

Avoiding sole representation and interpretation is one of the primary visions in my artwork creation process.

Interpretation for me is a set of consensus about the values embedded in certain objects. Not infrequently, the process of interpreting is also affected by varied group or personal interests.



I routinely hunts for objects that once functioned and perhaps had a sentimental impression for their previous owners, to be then reassembled into a new narrative. I arrange the objects (such as computer motherboard, action figures, and animal toys) into a single unit that seemed to be structured hierarchically. Although I display such narration in my work, I then obscure it with a single color blockade on the entire surface of the work. My work can be seen from various perspectives, which invites people to interpret it freely.
