Tiarma Sirait, Fashion Art Designer dan Contemporary Artist

Tiarma Sirait adalah seorang contemporary artist sekaligus fashion art designer yang sebagian besar karyanya sangat feminin dengan warna pink-nya, sekaligus profokatif. Ide-idenya yang nyeleneh dan out of the box ini membuat karyanya mudah dikenali dan membawa dirinya menjadi salah satu seniman Indonesia yang sering mengadakan pameran baik di dalam maupun di luar negeri.

Berikut percakapan Indonesia Kreatif dengan Tiarma Sirait yang akrab dipanggil Mbak Ama:

Hai Mbak Ama, sejak kapan dan bagaimana awalnya bisa terjun di dunia seni?

Saat di SMP saya mulai belajar melukis dari artis senior Barli Sasmitawinata karena saya ingin menjadi seorang fashion designer dan seniman. Untuk mewujudkan cita-cita saya itu, setelah lulus SMA saya berkuliah di ITB Fakultas Seni Rupa dam Desain dan kemudian melanjutkan studi saya di RMIT Australia dan University of Boras Swedia dalam bidang Fashion and Textile Design. Saya pun bekerja di industri Fashion dan akhirnya pada tahun 1997 mendirikan studio bernama Poleng. Saya memutuskan untuk bergerak di Fashion Art dan melukis, karena media ini yang paling tepat untuk berekspresi. Selain itu juga saya membuat karya fashion art performance, fiber and fashion installation, object dan juga karya photography.

Kalau diperhatikan Mbak Ama aktif sekali ya, seni lukis dan juga fashion art performance, boleh diceritakan mbak?

Proses berkarya saya itu dimulai dari saya menemukan objek apa saja dan dimana saja dan tentunya harus kena di hati saya. Lalu saya mulai berkhayal dengan obyek tersebut dan selanjutnya mengolah hasil temuan saya itu. Kadang akhirnya menjadi sesuatu atau karya dengan mudahnya, kadang juga hanya sebagai obyek explorasi saya saja, dan bahkan mungkin baru beberapa tahun kemudian menjadi sesuatu atau karya. Inspirasi datangnya kapan saja tidak bisa diatur oleh otak saya.
Beberapa karya favorit saya adalah Sweet Lolly, The Bride in Waiting, Synthetic Love, Pink Love, dan Transporter & Transformer, karena dibuat secara serius sekali, menyita waktu, energi dan isi dompet. Tapi hasilnya memuaskan dan sejak dari dulu, baik tema, konsep dan visualnya masih relevan sampai saat ini dan terus diminati audiences untuk dipamerkan di berbagai tempat baik di dalam ataupun luar negeri.
Sayangnya karya-karya unik fashion art tidak mudah diserap oleh masyarakat kita pada umumnya. Masyarakat pada umumnya lebih mudah mengerti dan menyerap karya-karya berbentuk lukisan.
Lukisan-lukisan saya yang saya suka pada awalnya bertemakan pink, modelnya saya sendiri, tapi setelah kira-kira 9 tahun meng-explore tema tersebut, saya menjadi jenuh dengan warna pink, dan mulai mengeksplorasi tema-tema batik dan alam dengan sentuhan warna lain selain pink yang tetap dibuat dengan contemporary style. Serial batik dan alam ini cukup banyak diminati masyarakat pada umumnya. Bukan tidak mungkin juga kalau nanti saya membuat serial lukisan yang bergaya abstract.

Aliran seni lukis yang ditekuni apa, dan mengapa memilih itu?

Contemporary, karena ada statement yang saya sampaikan dalam lukisan-lukisan tersebut, terutama lukisan saya; serial Pink Goes to Beijing yang akan dipamerkan tanggal 2 September 2017 di Breeze Art BSD Tangerang, dimana merupakan pameran bersama antara seniman Indonesia dengan Vietnam.

Untuk fashion mengapa memilih menjadi fashion artist dan bukannya designer fashion komersial?

Sewaktu SMP sampai pada saat kuliah di ITB, fashion designer favorit saya adalah Issey Miyake, beliau banyak membuka pikiran saya tentang fashion supaya berpikir lebih out of the box. Menurut saya, karya-karya beliau masuk kategori fashion art. Berhubung beliau tinggal di Eropa, beliau lebih bisa memasarkan karya-karya uniknya menjadi mass production dan limited edition. Tetapi semua ide-ide beliau itu berasal dari pemikiran seni. Mungkin pada saatnya nanti saya mampu mengejawantahkan ide-ide seni saya ke produk fashion komersial. Yang pasti harus meets the market. Saya yakin suatu hari nanti market di Indonesia juga akan jenuh dengan produk-produk yang ada sekarang dan mencari produk lain yang lebih nyeleneh. Saya garap niche market sajalah dulu.

Adakah kendala dalam berkarya?

Kendala sudah pasti ada, datang silih berganti, terutama berkaitan dengan finansial. Tetapi moto hidupku tetap semangat, optimis, dan jadikan kegitan berkesenian itu sebagai upacara ritual dan pelita hati.
Yang paling penting karya kita berkarakter kuat, sehingga apabila dipamerkan dimanapun juga, audience cepat menebak bahwa itu karya kita, sekalipun tanpa melihat tag informasi mengenai siapa pembuat karyanya.

Setelah banyak menghasilkan karya, apakah ada hal yang unik dan berkesan dalam berkarya?

Yang paling berkesan adalah sewaktu saya membuat fashion art performance di Ewood Park, lapangan sepak bola di Blackburn UK, dimana ditonton oleh 30 ribu hooligans yang histeris melihat saya performance di tengah lapangan sepak bola tersebut.

Cita-cita ke depannya atau mungkin ada project impian yg akan dibuat?

Mengejawantahkan ide-ide seni saya ke produk fashion komersial dan tentunya memanfaatkan teknologi semaksimal yang saya bisa.

Harapan tentang dunia seni Indonesia?

Harapan saya dan mungkin banyak pekerja seni lainnya adalah agar kreatifitas para seniman kita dapat lebih terwadahi dengan adanya penambahan galeri dan museum. Karena saat ini jumlah museum dan galeri di Indonesia tidak berimbang dengan jumlah pekerja seni itu sendiri yang semakin hari semakin bertambah. Dan saya yakin seniman kita mempunyai ide-ide yang luar biasa yang karyanya dapat dishare dan dinikmati oleh masyarakat luas. Tentunya hal ini dapat lebih memajukan seni di Indonesia.
Dan saya harap karya seni dan seniman di Indonesia dapat lebih dihargai dan diapresiasi, salah satunya diawali melalui pendidikan formal sejak dini di SD.

Pandangan Mbak Ama tentang sejauh mana pemerintah Indonesia dalam kontribusinya di dunia seni Indonesia?

Saya rasa kontribusi pemerintah terhadap seni di Indonesia masih kurang seperti dalam hal undang-undang aturan main transaksi penjualan karya yang belum dapat melindungi hak-hak seniman.
Negara yang paling memikirkan hal ini setahu saya adalah Australia dengan aturan main yang detil, sehingga seniman sebagai pihak yang memproduksi karya tidak menjadi sapi perah para art dealer.
Seniman yang sudah sering mengharumkan nama Indonesia di negara lain pun sepatutnya mendapatkan insentif dari pemerintah sesuai dengan jam terbangnya terutama bila pameran di luar negeri tersebut disponsori oleh pemerintah.
Sedangkan mengenai aturan DIKTI mengenai pengajar perguruan tinggi saya rasa sudah ada perbaikan walau sedikit terlambat. Saat ini telah diterapkan oleh DIKTI bahwa lulusan D4 dan S1 pun bisa menjadi dosen di perguruan tinggi, saya rasa itu sudah benar karena jika berbicara seni maka tidak hanya ijazah tetapi justru pengalaman dan jam terbang yang menentukan.
