The artistic practice of Lair’s composers, Tedi Nurmanto, Andzar Agung Fauzan, Muhammad Pipin Kaspin, Kiki Permana, Ika Yuliana and Tamyiz Ramadhan begins with the creation of their own clay musical instruments from which each sound is formed.
JaF has exhibited internationally, including Sonsbeek 2016, Dhaka Art Summit 2020 and the upcoming iteration of Documenta 15. A partnership with the Toronto Biennial of Art, Agnes and the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, we host Lair in a creation-based micro-residency in Kingston with a jam session at Agnes with Matt Rogalsky and Golam Rabbani on 6 March, 1–5 pm. The ensemble records new work in the Jennifer Velva Bernstein Performance Hall at the Isabel from 7–8 March 2022 with a public streaming event on 8 March at 7:30 pm. JaF participates in the Toronto Biennial of Art taking place 26 March–5 June 2022.
