Fighting Cock Group

Fighting Cocks Group Yogyakarta (Kelompok Jago Tarung) was established in June 2010 in Yogyakarta. Comprised of four artists – all alumni of the Indonesia Art Institute (ISI) Yogyakarta: Multazam 'Zam' Kamil, Moch Basori, Nurul 'Acil' Hayat and Priyaris Munandar.

Although recently formed, the members of Fighting Cocks Group have long been involved in the contemporary art scene. Multidisciplinary artists, each with their individual specialties but employing painting as their primary calling, they also create three-dimensional works using various media such as newsprint, wood, textiles, metal, glass, resin, stone, bone and brass.

Celebrating the Body” uses the human body as the framework for the visual narration composed by the Fighting Cocks Group. The body, defined by philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty as être-au-monde, is the modality of all human beings in this universe, Important both biologically - because the body supports human life, and philosophically - as a medium with which to touch world and define oneself, our bodies express the very essence of what it is to be human.

Each of the four artists addresses the human body from a different perspective. Multazam ‘Zam’ Kamil interprets the body as the expressive medium of the human soul. He endows the human silhouette with dynamic and poetic movements. Nurul ‘Acil’ Hayat picks group of masculine bodies with expressionless faces, naked bodies and colorful baldheads. These men are continuously chasing, jumping, and selecting “something” to define human desire. Human forms presented in groups are also central to Priyaris Munandar, but rendered with a more meditative and monumental nuance. Finally, Moch Basori interprets the body in a more metaphysical sense. For Basori, the body in its basic essence may be present in any form.

In the midst of this multi-media project, Beatriz Mousinho - who participates as a part of Ubud Writers and Reader Festival - explores cultural and personal diversity. She uses poetry to go beyond formless emotion and render new shapes possessing enriched blended emotions. Based in Lisbon, Portugal, Beatriz has also explored other forms of expression via serious studies of fine art and contemporary jewelry.
