In Retrospect: Kedamaian: An Interconnection of Piece, Love and Compassion

By Muhammad Bundhowi

“Kedamaian”; refers in Sanskrit to the state of the soul. (Harmony with the self, nature and the environment) It is realized in this reference both intrinsically and extrinsically.

“Kedamaian” is a project involving three contemporary artist from three different countries; Sandra Phillips (Canadian) artist/performer/educator, Mohammed Bundhowi (Indonesian) artist/CCU trainer/lecturer and Anna Niblic Heggie ( Australia ) – artists / educator.

 

 

The project involves a mutual symbiosis of the three artists whose artistic lives and work interconnect through technology and the transcendental. Via consistent communication the three artists set up a mutual dialogue and exchange in which they discuss philosophical ideas, world news and art practices. The exhibition at Museum Rudana in Ubud, Bali , was an exciting culmination of exchanges, dialogues, ideas and references, for the three artists. Working alone, separately, in their own countries, far from each other geographically yet utilizing a vibrant exchange of ideas transmitted online and through other forms of communication, they achieved a powerful and stimulating work which was seen as an interconnected outreach to touch the soul; ‘Kedamaian”. The work was well received in Canada and Phillips and Heggie were invite to give a lecture at Guelph University and do a workshop at Cambridge Library Gallery , Ontario . They were filmed in an interview for Guelph Television and also gave a radio interview with Canada CBC Radio Francaise.

 

 

 Australian artist, Anna Niblic Heggie first met Indonesian Mohammed Bundhowi several years ago when he did an artist in residence and teaching exchange in Australian. He has since been invited back to Australia on several occasions to lecture in University in Western Australia and Canberra .

Mohammed Bundhowi uses his photography to bring awareness to our sense of being. Photography ancient Cambodian, Indonesian and other important sites as appoint of reference, he creates images of beauty and strength with a profound and urgent vision. Bundhowi who is Javanese lives with his Vietnamese/Canadian wife and the Bali bombings occurred close to their home in Bali . He brings to the threesome an insight of heart felt compassion and the very real desire for peace.

 Anna met Sandra Phillips also in Indonesia in 2002. They met during the week before the Bali bombing when Anna had an exhibition and cultural exchange with the Pengosekan Community of Artists in Ubud. For many years Sandra Phillips has traveled back and forth to Java for intensive study and inspiration now returning as an accomplished Javanese Gamelan sindhen; (gamelan singer) a rare talent. She is deeply inspired by “filsafat jawa” (Javanese philosophy, and its profound understanding of meditation, balancing and harmonizing of earth and body energies ).

 

 

Sandra was a principle events co-ordinator for 2000 Bilateral Canadian / Indonesian Celebration in Toronto and continues to run and participate in many intercultural activities. She brings to the group a strong theater presence and a mutual desire for the interconnection of love. Sandra utilizes the power of her storey telling and the “screen” which is Wayang Kulit Shadow Puppet Theatre, to create a bridge between the ancient and contemporary. The “screen” becomes a playful paradox on the world “television” as tell a vision

 

 

 By Sandra Phillips ( Canada )

 Anna Niblic Heggie is an Australian artist of Polish immigration parentage. Her background has made her appreciative of being an Australian. At the same time her ideology has been formed and heightened through stories of her parent’s adaptation to a new country and the effects of war on the old one. An insight into the devastation of war and a strong desire for world peace has led to a stronger sense of commitment to the arts where she sees the potential through creative interconnection to reach an audience on many levels. Her recent work involves digitally manipulated media in which she cross references ideas, words and images to create new works of meaning and symbolism

 

 

 

The connection between the three artists has established an ongoing and strong dialogue in which many contemporary global topics are discussed. The artists hope that the positive and dynamic energies of the group will be transmitted through the exhibition and workshops to harmonies and facilitate others in recognizing the state of their souls, “Kedamaian”.
