In April 2003 ruangrupa organised a happening in the Cemeti gallery
in Yogyakarta; Eating well without paying. The artists created
an interactive environment in which objects (design, artistic and
everyday objects) and people played a role. The art public were
offered a chic dinner, live music and discussion and in this way
they played a role in their own show. This interactive project
examined the attitude and the behaviour of the public with regard
to an art space.
The “leftovers” of the evening, from full ashtrays and
dirty dishes to objects of art, were subsequently exhibited. A chaotic
entity in which, in your imagination, anything could have been enacted.
