Currently featured at the NUS Baba House, the exhibition, Kebon Indah: Mintio & Kabul, Kelompok Batik Tulis Sido Luhur, Collaboration displays a series of textiles which combines the tradition of batik making with portrait photography. The series, Malam Di Jari Kita (The Wax On Our Fingers) was the result of an art project initiated by Singaporean photographer Samantha Tio (Mintio) and Indonesian contemporary artist Budi Agung Kuswara (Kabul) in 2011 and developed with batik makers of the Sido Luhur group from Kebon Indah, Central Java.

This 2 hour workshop will allow participants to get hands-on exposure in creating a cyanotype print on fabric – one of the methods used by Mintio & Kabul in making the artworks. The artists will also talk about the process behind cyanotype, a type of photographic printing process that produces a cyan blue print. Discovered in the 1840s, it was mainly used by architects in the reproduction of large architectural and mechanical drawings.
