The door which serves as a theme and subject matter in the art works may arise in various possibilities and the looks would of course be related to meaning construction which would be reinforced by the artists. The “1001 Doors: Reinterpreting Tradition” exhibition would indicate the possibilities and the rich meanings which can be ressurracted related to door existence. If in traditional societies, doors play crucial roles as symbolical artifacts, to contemporary artists doors certainly become a subject matter which they can work on to produce various possibilities and meaning layers.
The “1001 Door Reinterpreting Tradition” exhibition sought to see how a door is positioned and given meanings in the cultural transformational journey, in particular in the past Indonesian society up to now. The exhibition may make use of doors as the entrance to see how traditional heritage is used and given meaning, especially contemporary visual artists. Therefore, the exhibition shows us traditional doors as traditional heritage and “art work on doors” by a number of contemporary artists.
