Leonard Suryajaya X Plug In ICA Merchandise
July 14, 2022 - July 17, 2022
This collection is a selection of products created to compliment and be featured in Leonard Suryajaya’s exhibition False Idol X North Kin, on display at Plug In ICA until July 17, 2022.
For this project Suryajaya built upon the importance of relationships in his extensive body of work by offering free studio portrait sessions to members of the public when he visited Winnipeg for the first time in February 2022. The result of these portrait sessions has been amalgamated into an interwoven collage that becomes part of his characteristic visually rich installation in False Idol X North Kin. The installation models itself after airport newsstands and gift shops for travellers on their way to or leaving home. The sculptural elements of the exhibition extend the immersive set designs of his photographs to make that even more vivid. Suryajaya sees these gift stands as an invitation to audiences to ‘find a sense of familiarity in the photographs of the ‘other’, the foreigners.’
Leonard Suryajaya X Plug In ICA includes cards, notebooks, scarves, postcards, stickers, pins, luggage tags, pins, playing cards, and a Lucky Cat artist multiple.
