Artist Statements:

For this exhibition Stefanie Wuschitz was researching on Commons in the matrilinear culture of the Minangkabau in West Sumatra. She compared the "Adat" to practices of the Open Source Culture and explored issues evolving around collectivity and proximity through working with wood and free hardware.

Fiona Crestani's work in Jogja is a study of the subtle differences of everyday life between two cultures. Through careful observation and selective process she displays an array of found and purchased objects in an attempt to make an intercultural connection.
