What is SURVIVE!Attacks ?

SURVIVE!Attacks is an art project initiated by SURVIVE!Garage. Artists – who don’t need to be implicitly be directly involved in SURVIVE!Garage – are invited to join this collaboration project. SURVIVE!Attacks is mostly a response to certain issues in form of art. By that it is not only about the art itself but includes working with data, speakers and doing research about certain topics. The artworks of the participating artists are  single entity in the same theme.

At the second year of this project SURVIVE! cooperated with FCAC (Footscray Community Arts Centre) in Melbourne, Australia. This collaboration was run under the name “The Container Art Project”, in which container were the gallery. 17 artists of different backgrounds got involved in the project which theme was “Refugees”.

Woodcut Workshop with Art and Culture Students 2018 from SUNY

Processed with VSCO

Date: 13|01|2018     |     Time: 3.30 WIB     |     Venue: SURVIVE!Garage

On Saturday, 13th January 2018, Art and Social Movements 2018 students from SUNY (the State University of New York) joined SURVIVE! and VIA Indonesia for a woodcut workshop. After a brief introduction into SURVIVE!’s values and art space they got introduced into woodcutting.

Every participant got the tools (such as paper, pens, wood and cutting utensils) to begin their very own woodcutting experience. The art of woodcutting is not only having an image in mind which will carved on the wood later on but also that the image itself is supposed to be drawn back-to-front. This is especially important if one wishes to print written words, as otherwise the final product would be mirror-inverted. With this in mind the students started drawing their first sketches on paper and copied those onto the wood, continued by cutting them and printing on paper and shirts.

After the cutting process the wood got painted on with black ink to print a sample on paper. By that the student could see if the image comes out clean enough to be continued on a t-shirt. After that the woodcut art got painted with ink once again and then placed on the t-shirt, covered in newspaper to prevent a mess. While putting pressure on the image by slowly stepping on it the printing process has been performed. Finally the tshirts were left to dry and taken home.
