Still from Anggun Priambodo’s, ‘Mendarat’, 2011

One of the most exciting discoveries for Leg of Lamb at this year’s ArtJOG in Yogyakarta was the video work of Jakartan artist Anggun Priambodo.  Priambodo works mostly as a director of music videos but is also a visual artist, and two of his recent video works, including ‘Mendarat’ (above), were presented at the exhibition.  Priambodo mirrored video footage of passengers dismounting a ferry in a manner that made them look as if they were birthing themselves.  The effect is a little like a funniest home video squeezed through a Rorschach test, or, as the artist stated, as if the travellers ‘…just landed to earth from somewhere’.
