3. LUMBUNG CIGARETTE — Why was the Lumbung Cigarrete?, to resolve the smoking needs of artists, and our colleagues around documenta fifteen, Kevin Gudskul took the initiative to make Lumbung Cigarette Rolls. He invites visitors who come to the Rolling Competition to roll as many kretek cigarettes as possible, which are typical and commonly practiced by Indonesian or Asian youth.
He also taught how to roll kretek cigarettes quickly without the help of rolling tools, aka pure handmade. What are kretek cigarettes? Kretek cigarettes are cigarettes with or without filters that use chopped tobacco. This type of cigarette is also mixed with chopped cloves and rolled up with cigarette paper. This object usually has a distinctive odor and a “kretek-kretek” sound from the burning of cloves. This cigarette has been produced since the 19th century and at this time kretek cigarettes are the most widely smoked cigarettes in Indonesia.
The collected kretek cigarettes will be put into a container, which will later be used as a Lumbung Cigarette, meaning a stock of cigarettes for all.
