The street vendors in Jogja, the "bakul" draw attention by the sounds they produce: every kind of food is announced by the sound of an object. A sound of a spoon on a plate is "rujak" (fruit), a cow bell is "satay", a spoon on a bowl of noodles is "bakso ayam". The sound of boiling water "putu" (coconut cake) and a cart with a loud speaker with LOUD "dangdut" music is "getuk" (cassava cakes). The latter is indicative of a trend: traditional sounds are gradually taken over by electronically amplified sounds.

CATHRINE RABEN DAVIDSEN Historical accounts, works of fiction and mythological material combined with personal memory often form the point of departure for the work of Danish artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen. Her activities are characterized by a strong fascination with the material and the urge constantly to experiment with and explore different artistic techniques. From early on she has also drawn inspiration from the history of art and from a variety of textual references associated with Western and Eastern mythology and literature. The traditional hierarchies among art, artist-craftsmanship and design are negated in an artistic oeuvre that ranges wide from painting, drawing and ceramics to costumes and stage design. Cathrine Raben Davidsen (b. 1972) has exhibited widely in Denmark and abroad and is represented in several national and international art collections. Public collections include: SMK, The National Gallery of Denmark, Trapholt Museum of Modern Art, Applied Art, Design and Architecture, Horsens Art Museum and The New Carlsberg Foundation among others. She has created costumes and set design for The Royal Danish Ballet and has received numerous prestigious awards, grants and scholarships. She is educated in Italy, The Netherlands and in Denmark at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. She lives and works in Copenhagen.
