"Juga menuju punah #3" (Soon it will be gone too) confronts how humans treat and relate both to, and with each other, and in parallel, how this tendency also forms relations to their environment. It explores the commodification of resources – ironical detailing the irony of bought drinking water disposable plastic bottles discarded into the river, to the demise of the water system. Specifically, this work explores the commodification of resources – those of natural and nature-based resources versus those of human-constructed resources and resource commodification.
Taken from a river site in Central Java in Indonesia, the scene draws attention to the impact of commoditizing nature’s resources and our way of life. The natural ecosystem struggling to remain intact (what has remained) on the outskirts of a large city, is constantly inundated with commodity waste from upstream each time it rains (what will soon be gone). The scene depicted focuses also on showing how nature-based play relies on imagination and social interaction. The interaction captured in this work intends to illustrate nature-based, non-consumptive, collaborative play based on social and ecological interactions and imagination, as fostering an understanding of the tools of nature (promoting ecological understanding), and emotional intelligence. This soon will be gone too. In showing this scene, the artist is critiquing the consumption of commercial toys and games seen to promote individual-centricity, socially non-interactive competition-focused; instead of revolving around mutually constructive learning.

Lives and Works: Yogyakarta
Peter Gentur is an artist from Jakarta, currently based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. He works in pen, pencil, oil & acrylic to make unique human-environment focused work. Gentur's focus is on capturing the essence of people, their movement, emotion, and the intensity of human relationships, as part of a journey in understanding humanity as well as one’s self.
Gentur’s earlier work dealt primarily with social disparities and divides between people that is reflective of Jakarta’s urban setting; the relations & connections of humans between each other and society. More recent work has built on this with a specific shift from confronting how people relate to and with each other, to dealing with how these relations form also the basis for how people relate to both the social, built, and natural environment around them. His work deals with and debates “human nature for destroying itself and everything within & around it” - refer to both nature and the social fabric of societies and communities.
