According to Patra, this international exhibition which was held virtually aims to show the ways that artists take in processing silent images to voice their thoughts on an issue.
“In this exhibition, we can see that still images present not only what is visible at the visually level, but also show various dynamics, complexities, and ‘inequalities’ that occur in the human body at its deepest layers.”
Dean of FIK Dr. Roro Retno Wulan explained that current technological advances have given access to the production of moving, simulated, or even virtual images. Nevertheless, still, images remain distributed in prevalence, interestingly, still, images in the form of images or photos remain prevalent even though they are present in various formats.
“Through this exhibition, we want to provide a platform for world artists, that in the current pandemic conditions we want gymnasts to continue to be creative and provide their artworks so that it can be a learning method for students,” said Dr. Roro during the opening ceremony of the 2nd Immediacy of Image Exhibition: The Unmoving 2021, virtually Friday (27/8).
