Pameran tunggal Hendriana Werdhaningsih atau biasa dipanggil Henne , menyajikan karya-karya obyek produk dengan penjelajahan bentuk dengan material gelas , yang berkolaborasi dengan produsen gelas tableware dari Bandung , SUKI. Judul Function Follows Clarity seolah mempermainkan kalimat / frase “form follows function’ yang dikanonkan oleh seorang arsitek Amerika awal abad 20  Louis Henry Sullivan, yang dikenal juga oleh “bapak modernism” dimana secara estetik mempengaruhi praktek arsitektur dan desain industrial modern abad 20 dengan’ gaya internasional’ dan menghindari aspek ornamen. 
 
Pameran Function Follows Clarity  merujuk kepada sifat metarial fisikawi maupun kimiawi serta makna (budaya) dari industri era – modern, yang membawa suatu perilaku dalam keseharian masyarakat sekarang, terutama kepada obyek-obyek fungsional yang komersial dan domestic. Gelas mempunyai karakter bening, transparan, permukaan yang licin dan halus , memaknai kejernihan dan kejujuran , ada kekuatan tapi sekaligus disisi lain, ada kerapuhan dalam dirinya. Makna –makna simbolik di balik material kaca atau gelas sering menjadi metafor dalam sastera, syair lagu , karya seni dan lain sebagainya.
 
Dalam menghasilkan obyek-obyek gelasnya, Henne berkolaborasi  dengan Stanley ,teman lama di sekolah yang juga  pemilik SUJI Premium Handcrafted sebuah perusahaan benda-benda gelas yang terbuat dari borosilicate , memproduksi tableware di Bandung, dengan lingkup menengah tetapi mampu menerjemahkan gagasannya. Bentuk benda-bendanya juga tak-jauh dari kebiasaan produk perusahaan tersebut. SUJI berawal dari produsen peralatan untuk kebutuhan laboratorium seperti tabung reaksi kimia dan lainnya. Kemudian ketika industri kuliner mulai marak SUJI mulai memproduksi kebutuhan tableware untuk kebutuhan café. 
 
Maka karakter produksi SUJI tersebut dimanfaatkan oleh Henne untuk merealisasikan gagasan obyek-obyeknya dengan mengembangkan dari dasar bentuk fungsi wadah (water container) , yang mengikuti karakter materi maupun bentuk-bentuk wadah dari budaya tertentu seperti kendi, gelas , tabung dan lain sebagainya. Kadang bentuk-bentuk tersebut dikombinasi dengan materi lain seperti kayu yang berkarakter padat namun tetap terasa harmonis. Permainan materi, bentuk maupun aspek formal lainnya menjadi berbeda ketika ditampilkan bersentuhan dengan aspek ruang , cahaya dan unsur bayangan.
 
English
 
Hendriana Werdhaningsih, or usually called Henne's solo exhibition presents products of artwork objects with the exploration of form by glass as the material, which is collaborating with SUJI, Bandung's tableware company. The title, Function Follows Clarity itself got a meaning like as if it is a phrase "form follows function" that is renowned by American 20th century architect, Louis Henry Sullivan who was also known as the father of modernism. Where aesthetic affects the practical of architecture and modern industrial design in 20th century with 'international design' but also avoids the ornament aspects.
 
Function Follows Clarity exhibition is referring to the material character of either physically or chemically and also the meaning (culture) from modern-era industry that brings the behaviors of society nowadays, especially to the functional objects that is used commercially or domestically. Glass has a character like clear, transparent, a slippery and smooth surface, has a meaning of clarity and honesty, has a strength but in the other hand there is also a fragile characteristic in it. The symbolised meanings behind the glass material or glass itself often become the metaphor in literatures, songs, artworks etc.
 
 
By making her glass objects, Henne is collaborating with Stanley, an old friend from school and also the owner of SUJI Premium Handcrafted, a company that produces glass objects which made by borosilicate, making a tableware in Bandung with a middle class environmental but also can tell its ideas well. The form of the objects are also not far from own habit of the company's products. At first, SUJI produced laboratory's objects such as sample tubes and other things. Then, when culinary industry started to expands, SUJI starts to produce tableware and café needs.
 
So, Henne used SUJI's production character to realize her ideas for the objects that is developed from the function basic form of water container, that follows the material character or even the container from particular culture like jug, mug/cup, tubes etc. Sometimes, those forms are combined with other material like wood (that has the solid character but also harmonious). The othe material's play, form or formal aspects are becoming different when they are shown with the aspect of space, light, and shadows.
