The Memories of Unidentified Experience

What if you went through a phase in your self-history that changed your life completely; yet, your mind can not identify what your body remember? 

What happen in Dito Yuwono’s past was more like a myth. He was haunted by a nostalgia of what the past bring to his present. Using his body as a point of departure, he begin a systematic investigation  and in-depth study of self, body, identity, and self-history.He spent a year occupying a space driven with intense energy of obsession in searching and trying to understand and to experiment beyond his personal aesthetic; using himself as a subject and object of his investigation to seize control of the time and space he once lost. 

Using photography as the main medium, his self-portrait series are presented on transparent medium; portraying the spectral aspect of memories he is trying to materialize. In one way or another, this work serve as a form of expressive therapy and a reconstruction of identity. It is a way for him to cope up with himself, his past, and at the same time doing the one thing that he feared the most: evoking the self to explore the rambling nature of his unstable nature. 

The whole series is appropriated as autobiographical exploration through self portrait; re-telling the strange experience of having no control nor understanding of oneself as a physical being. More than that, this series is about self-acceptance: the desire to learn about himself was meant to feel more ease with who he is through revisiting the past in staged photography with a courage to show how he survived all the gaze and the questions in the past; wearing the wounds like a trophy or a medals of bravery.

Kenangan-Kenangan atas Pengalaman yang Tidak Teridentifikasi

Hal-hal yang terjadi di masa lalu Dito Yuwono lebih menyerupai mitos. Ia melewati sebuah fase penting dalam sejarah kehidupannya yang hilang dari ingatan namun menyisakan tanda-tanda pada tubuhnya. Menggunakan badannya sebagai titik awal, Dito memulai sebuah investigasi sistematis dan penggalian mendalam atas diri, tubuh, identitas, dan sejarah personal. Ia menghabiskan setahun belakangan di dalam sebuah ruang yang dihidupkan oleh energi obsesif yang intensif dalam mencari dan mencoba memahami masa lalunya sekaligus bereksperimen di luar pilihan estetika personalnya. Hal tersebut membuatnya menjadi subjek dan objek atas investigasi dalam merebut kendali atas ruang dan waktu yang hilang baginya.

Dengan menggunakan fotografi sebagai media utama, seri potret diri tersebut disajikan dalam media semi-transparan; menggambarkan aspek bayang-bayang atas kenangan yang coba diwujudkan ke dalam bentuk material. Karya ini menjadi sebuah bentuk terapi ekspresif dan pembentukan ulang identitas. Ini adalah cara yang dipilihnya untuk berdamai dengan diri sendiri, masa lalu, dan dalam waktu yang bersamaan merupakan hal yang paling ditakutinya: membangkitkan kesadaran diri untuk mengeksplorasi kebingungannya atas ketidakstabilan kondisi tersebut. 

Keseluruhan seri ini dimaksudkan sebagai eksplorasi autobiografis melalui foto diri; menceritakan ulang pengalaman janggal yang dialaminya saat tidak memiliki kontrol maupun pemahaman atas diri sebagai makhluk fisik. Ia kembali mengunjungi masa lalu dengan keberanian untuk menunjukkan betapa ia telah bertahan dari seluruh pandangan dan pertanyaan yang kerap dihadapinya di masa lalu. Hal ini membuatnya bisa mengenakan bekas luka dan sayatan layaknya tropi dan medali keberanian. (Mira Asriningtyas)
