Vincent Rumahloine is an Indonesian artist working with mixed media, mostly
photography and video. He graduated from Fine Arts Department at Bandung
Institute of Technology in 2009. Since then he is involved in social work as a
volunteer in several organizations including Rumah Cemara – HIV and Drug
Addiction Treatment Center located in Bandung. This activity is strongly
connected to his artistic praxis. Vincent involves the local community to the
process of art making. People with whom he works, come from the
overpopulated areas with the low socioeconomic status. It means that art is often
not a value for them. At the beginning of the process Vincent presents himself
and his project to the community, sharing his perspective on world through his
involvement in the daily activities of the community. He does not organize
formal meetings, workshops or classes. Slowly he gains the trust of the
community and its interest in the project. Eventually Vincent becomes one of its
members. The whole community is involved in the process of art making.
Everyone can bring his own input. The final step is an exhibition open for the
public. The works are presented in the involved area, not in an art gallery. For
the last project it was a squatter area of Bandung. Invited guests are both the
locals and the people important for the art world. This is the chance for them to
redefine position of an artist and art space in nowadays world.
Through his works Vincent shows that art is not exclusive. Involvement of the
other, often very simple people is very important for Vincent’s creative process.
He learns something new from every single person he meets. Conversations and
interviews are always a huge part of every project. Vincent believes that the

social change should start in everyone’s closest environment.
