Abstract

One major element that finds expression at road intersections, parks, gardens, square and open spaces in the urban landscape are outdoor sculptures. Of great significance is the historical information they disseminate, the visual impressions they convey and the aesthetic value they add to the quality of the city. From 1960s and after the civil war, the uses of sculptures for embellishments in public places have increased tremendously in Nigeria. However, outdoor sculpture for the purpose of recreation and relaxation in our built environment has not been adequately addressed scholastically in Nigeria. This paper, therefore, focuses on the social values derivable from the use of sculpture in urban design and the losses that could accrue to the social system if not adequately managed. The values of these sculptures to the socio-psychological development of Nigerians and the beautification of the urban environment are equally emphasized. The study shows that incorporating sculptures into public places without doubt will heighten public appreciation and aesthetic perception and make Nigerian cities unique and vibrant.

Abstract

Nowadays batik is going through a massive development in its existence. On the one hand its position has become stronger, but on the other hand its character is changing. About two years ago, a batik football pattern gained popularity and was adopted as a commodity by batik artisans. The football pattern had positive and negative effects on batik. Issues of aesthetics and commodification emerged as a result of this development. Moreover, it put the essence and character of batik itself into question. In this research, the batik football pattern was investigated in relation to the essence of batik and the way it has been affected. The essence of batik was particularly analyzed from the perspective of its aesthetics and commodification, with the aim to find out how they were influenced by the football pattern. The conclusion of the research was that the batik football pattern has put more emphasis on the commodification of batik in stead of its aesthetics. This analysis shows how batik specifically and art in general are influenced by society.

Abstract

Public outdoor sculpture practice in the Southwestern Nigeria entails different types of attitudes. These attitudes are discernable from the stage of commissioning of work, its conceptualization to the display and uses in the public sphere generated diverse fundamental, constant technical issues. Some are explicitly alluring while others are absurd, fleeting and injurious to the practice. However, whatever attitude advanced in the public outdoor sculpture practice, it has not been discussed cross sectionally. The inadequate scholarship attention on the attitudinal issues in outdoor sculpture certainly created art historical gap apt to make the study of contemporary Nigeria art incoherent. Apparently, attitudinal studies certainly involve psychological measurement - a type of instrument that does not required descriptive survey. For this reason, the study was based on qualitative methods. The study categorised various attitudes in outdoor sculpture practice in the studied area into pre-unveiling, unveiling and post unveiling stages and critically examined them. Some attitudes in the practice of the art were observed to be stimulant for advancement; invariably others are clearly incongruous to the spirit of typical Yoruba societal value orientation in orderliness, therefore degrading and detrimental to the development of the outdoor sculpture in the public sphere.

The Palembangan motifs had a lot of absorbance from not only floral and animals of Palembang, songket motifs, but also from Indian and places where they are made in Pesisir Jawa. One of the solutions offer is by implementing batik technique upon kain Songket Palembang. As an act of decorating cloth surface, this technique is surely can be done for this textille is made of silk thread. Using a qualitative mode, the data were collected through literatures, interviews and non-participate observation at Songket Palembang and Batik crafters’ studios. With multidiscipline approaches for inspiration in creating the artworks, the datas were united for their analysis. The artwork process began by researching the aesthetical matters from Palembang to the designs for developing Batik motifs. The result is Batik technique can be implemented to the Songket survace with the adequate batik dyeing technique into become a suitable fashion product.
