Eddie Hara – Group Exhibition “Indonesian Eye: Fantasies and Realities”
9 Jun - 10 Jul 2011 (Ciptura Artpreneur Center)
27 Aug - 9 Oct 2011 (The Saatchi Gallery)
Fantasies and Realities presents works by 18 Indonesian artists encompassing the artistic heritage, rich tradition and the rapidly evolving society of present day Indonesia.
The exhibition has gathered works from across the Indonesian Archipelago with the aim of showcasing a wide selection of leading contemporary artists.
Fantasies and Realities strives to explore the uniqueness of Indonesian art which focuses on local appropriation of culture and expresses it in a fresh and at times deceptively naïve new language: made up of myths, realities and child’s play mixed with a more abstract artistic and realistic expression. The works have been selected by the Indonesian Eye curatorial team in collaboration with local curators.
