INTERVIEW WITH ANDI PRABANDARU


-Could you tell us a story about how Klastic is formed?
+Klastic was formed four years ago, at 7 December 2008. It began from a forum in the internet world; Kaskus that is. Firstly, the severity is only in forum but finally it was agreed to meet live in 7 December in Bandung. Jogja itself sent some representatives in that meeting, and then there was born Klastic.

-Why did you choose photos as your art media?
+Klastic choose photos as media because we are interested in photography’s world especially in which still use the film and the limited settings, such as camera Io-fi compared with digital camera.

-What about the creativity of Klastic itself?
+The creativity process can be said sourced from its personals and members inside. Here, the creativity process is done with sharing.

-So, how does your first time know Lir? And what is your reason for exhibiting at Lir?
+Sandi Kalifadani firstly introduced Lir to me. It was around fasting month 2011, at that time he offered me Ngabubulir. The reason why I take Lir is that the place is like home. Besides that, Lir itself has become the right place for artists in Jogja.

-What about the process of cultivating the Toycam Loves Jogja exhibition? Is there any reason for carrying theme “Toycam Loves Jogja” itself?
+The cultivation Toycam Loves Jogja exhibition can be said in a short time. It was aimed to celebrate the world toycam day. Despite it was short, Klastic itself was really helped with the advises from Dito Yuwono. The reason why the theme is Toycam Loves Jogja is because we also celebrate Jogja’s birthday at the same time.

-What Lir brings for Klastic’s creativity?
+From the exhibition itself, Klastic got learning process, particularly from Dito Yuwono, such as how to concept the exhibition installation.

-What will you do after having exhibition in Lir? Could you tell about Klastic’s next project?
+After this, Klastic has agendas to exhibit again and more focus to develop the photography’s concepts to my friends in Klastic. So we are not haphazardly in taking photos, but we can tell stories through photos.

WAWANCARA DENGAN ANDI PRABANDARU

-Bisa berbagi cerita tentang proses terbentuknya Klastic?
+ Klastic terbentuk 4 tahun yg lalu, tepatnya tanggal 7 Desember 2008, awal mula terbentuknya klastic dimulai dr sebuah forum di dunia maya yaitu kaskus. Semula intensitas hanya di forum dan akhirnya bersepakat untuk Kopdar pada tanggal 7 Desember tersebut di Bandung. Jogja sendiri mewakilkan beberapa orang dalam kopdar di bandung tersebut, dan sekaligus lahirlah Klastic.

-Mengapa memilih fotosebagai medium berkesenian?
+ Klastic memilih foto sebagai medium karena memang kami tertarik dengan dunia fotografi terutama fotografi yang masih menggunakan film, dan pengaturan yang masih terbatas, misalnya kamera lo-fi dibandingkan dengan menggunakan kamera digital.

- Proses kreatif di Klastic sendiri seperti apa?
+. Proses kreatif sendiri bisa dibilang dari para personilnya dan anggota di dalamnya. Di sini proses kreatif dilakukan dengan sharing.

-Bagaimana awal mula berkenalan denga nLir? Dan apa alasan berpameran di Lir?
+ Mas Sandi Kalifadani yg pertama memperkanalkan dengan Lir. Pertama kali kalo gak salah ketika pada bulan puasa tahun 2011, ketika itu ditawari Ngabubulir. Alasan berpameran di Lir, karena tempatnya yang homy. Di samping itu Lir sendiri sudah menjadi tempat yg strategis bagi seniman seniman di jogja.

-Bagaimana proses penggarapan pameran Toycam Loves Jogja? Dan apa alasan di balik mengusung tema "Toycam Loves Jogja" itu sendiri?
+Penggarapan pameran Toycam Loves Jogja, bisa dibilang sangat singkat. Karena pameran ini bertujuan untuk meperingati hari toycam sedunia, world toycam day. Walaupun singkat, tetapi Klastik sendiri sangat terbantu dengan adanya saran-saran dari mas Dito Yuwono. Alasan kenapa temanya Toycam Loves Jogja, adalah sebab selain memperinganti hari toycam sedunia, juga memperingati hari jadi Jogja.

-Pameran di Lir membawa apa kepada Klastic dan proses kreatif di Klastic?
+ Dari pameran itu, Klastic sendiri mendapatkan banyak pembelajaran, terutama dari mas Dito Yuwono. Misalnya, dari sana kami mendapatkan ilmu bagaimana mengkonsep instalasi pameran.

-Apa yang dilakukan setelah berpameran di Lir? Bisa ceritakan sedikit tentang (rencana) proyek-proyek Klastic selanjutnya?
+ Setelah berpameran di Lir, Klastic sendiri mempunyai agenda untuk berpameran lagi dan lebih fokus dalam pengembangan konsep-konsep fotografi bagi teman-teman yg ada di dalam Klastic. Sehingga bukan cuma asal-asalan membuat foto tetapi juga bisa lebih bercerita lewat foto.
