Melati Suryodarmo, seniman performans ternama Indonesia, akan membuka perhelatan Jakarta Biennale yang ke-15, SIASAT, tanggal 9 November 2013 di ruang bawah tanah Teater Jakarta. Pada malam pembukaan yang akan diadakan pada pukul 19:30 WIB itu, Melati menghadirkan karya berjudul Sweet Dreams Sweet, salah satu karya Melati yang paling mutakhir.

“Saya tergerak oleh perubahan konstan yang terjadi di sekitar saya, khususnya di masa ketika keberagaman menjadi keseragaman,” ucap Melati tentang karyanya. Sweet Dreams Sweet adalah karya performans yang berlangsung selama dua jam. Selama ini ia kerap menggunakan tubuhnya sendiri sebagai medium. Dalam karya ini, Melati membuka kolaborasi dengan sejumlah partisipan perempuan. Sebuah pendekatan baru dalam praktik artistiknya.

Karya-karya Melati Suryadarmo kerap kali menawarkan gagasan tentang tubuh, represi, dan kekerasan. Ia dikenal lewat performans ikoniknya, Exergie – Butter Dance, yang pertama kali ditampilkan di Hebbel Theatre, Berlin, tahun 2000 silam. Dalam Sweet Dreams Sweet, Melati akan melontarkan kegelisahannya atas bentuk relasi kuasa yang menciptakan keseragaman.

Sweet Dreams Sweet is a two hours presentation. Melati frequently uses her own body as the medium. In this work, she opens up collaboration with numerous female participants. This method implies a new approach in her artistic practice.
