Joris Link

Berbasis di ’s-Hertogenbosch, Belanda, Joris Link mendekati keramik sebagai unsur olahan moduler nan formal. Dengan bantuan teknologi pemodelan komputer, ia membangun komposisi-komposisi tiga dimensional yang seolah mengemulasi struktur dan pola ikatan- ikatan kimia pada tingkatan molekular. Sebagai hasil, bahan keramik seolah menjadi hilang dari karakter aslinya, menjadi modul-modul yang dicetak dengan sangat rapi—seragam dalam ketersebaran yang halus dan begitu terukur. Namun dalam program residensinya di JCCB4, Link bereksperimen dengan bekerja bersama dengan kriawan lokal; baik mereka yang mengolah logam, kayu, maupun tekstil, yang akan digabungkannya dengan keramik ke dalam struktur dan pola berukuran besar, dengan harapan untuk meninggalkan dampak kesan dalam skala arsitektural.

Joris Link terpilih melalui proses open call. Ia menjalankan program residensinya di SMKN 14 dan FSRD-ITB, pada Oktober 2016.

Based in ’s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands, Joris Link makes an approach to ceramics by regarding it as material for modular-structural compositions. With computer generated designs, he build works of three dimensional compositions which seemingly emulate the structure and patterns of molecular chemical bonds. As a result, his works assumes its own autonomous character, distanced from the original ceramic characteristics by becoming very fine casted modules—subtly diffused in unison yet meticulously measured. However, in his residency program in JCCB4, Link is going to experiment by working together with local craftspeople; including but not limited to those who work with metal, wood, or textile. The results of which shall be combined with his own work on ceramics into a major structure and pattern, with the hopes of being installed to an architectural impact.

Joris Link was chosen through open call for JCCB4 residency program. He did his residency in SMKN 14 and FSRD-ITB, October – November 2016.
