It was 7 in the morning when we decided to wake up from our ‘station nap’ and have a breakfast at the station. Then we went to LIR by becak, arriving there at 8-ish.
Dito greeted us and showed us the gallery, and the tools had all been prepared there.
Luckily we were well-prepared too so the photo installation went very smoothly. We measured the walls based on the wall plan made by Maarten, and soon we started to drill. Dito helped us drilling and we started to hang the frames on the walls.
I found the gallery room very nice with white walls and a wooden window that can be opened, facing the terrace with a long table and chairs. There was a small window ledge that could hold our postcards and flyers, so we did not need to install any wooden floating shelves.
The installation was very quick so by 2 in the afternoon we had finished everything. Even sweeping the floor and tidying up the tools, and taking naps on the floor of the gallery (because we were so exhausted from the lack of sleep).
LIR in general is a very nice place to hang out, with a small living room and a bookshelf, a couple of small exhibition spaces, a kitchen, and a terrace cafe. It was actually an old house, so I could actually smell the oldness and it really reminded me of my aunt’s old house in Manahan (Solo).
We were all set to go to the house of mbak Mirna, where we were going to stay for the next couple of days. However, it suddenly rained so we decided to take another hour to sleep..
