Naif’s 19th Anniversary Artwork Project

NAIF is an Indonesian band from Jakarta formed in 1995. It currently consists of David Bagus Danang Jaya (vocals), Fajar Endra Taruna (guitar), Franki Indrasmoro Sumbodo (drums), and Mohammad Amil Hussein (bass). They are known for their retro sound and style. Two of their songs, "Mobil Balap" ("Racecar") and "Posesif" ("Possessive"),  listed by Rolling Stone Indonesia in 2009 of the best Indonesian songs of all time.

Finishing November 2014, RURU SHOP create collaborate art project with NAIF to celebrate they 19th anniversary. The Collaboration was made by inviting 19 artist from around Indonesia, Jakarta-Bandung-Yogyakarta. Who have strong characterized and focus of artistic works with various and different style. The exhibition was titled Dia Adalah Pusaka Sejuta Umat Manusia Yang Ada di Seluruh Dunia (He was a Heritage of Million Mankind Existing Around the World). "NAIF" was chosen because this band made a many songs that has a closeness with us: telling about Jakarta, the story of love, money, television, something that is familiar, the song that makes us connect with our own lives.

This exhibition is part of a Artwork Project program organized by RURU SHOP every year, by inviting artists to create works with themes and specific material. RURU SHOP invited 19 artists who have been known an expertise area which they had, that is Agugn, Amenkcoy, Bondee, Edita Atmaja, Emte, Gooodit, Hauritsa, Henry Foundation, Ika Vantiani, Jayu Julie, Jimi Multhazam, Ricky Si Malau, Mushowir Bing, Marishka Soekarna, Oomleo, Sari Sartje, Sir Dandy, The Popo, Uji Hahan.

In this moment, I chose "Jikalau" song by Naif to make it into a visual masterpiece, with a very personal story and as well to realize into a visual that is very complex and difficult to describe it word by words, but as well  the song is one of my favorites since 2002 and have many stories behind it. ;)

This sketch appears when I listen "Jikalau" as much as 458 times play.

"Jikalau" Lyrics:


Jikalau telah datang
waktu yang dinanti
Gooodit "Jikalau" Multimedia Installation with Variable Dimension, 2014.
Ku pasti bahagiakan
dirimu seorang

Kuharap dikau sabar
menunggu...

Berilah daku waktu
'tuk wujudkan semua
Janji ini untukmu
ku tak akan lupa
Kuharap dikau sabar
menunggu.......
Kupasti akan datang

Untaian kata-kata yang kuucapkan untukmu
Tak seindah kata cinta yang dia berikan padamu
Namun kau selalu ada di hatiku

Berilah daku waktu
'tuk wujudkan semua
Janji ini untukmu
ku tak akan lupa
Kuharap dikau sabar
menunggu...
Kupasti akan datang

Jikalau telah datang

Ku pasti bahagiakan
dirimu seorang

Kuharap dikau sabar
menunggu.........
Kupasti akan datang
untukmu.........
Kuharap dikau sabar
menunggu...
