ENCOUNTER: Sea+ Triennale 2016 at National Gallery Indonesia

584

My Sunday Afternoon piece is hanging at Galeri Nasional Indonesia (National Gallery Indonesia) as part of their second Sea+ Triennale, ENCOUNTER: Art from Different Lands! The exhibition runs from 18th October to 10th November 2016 – so it is closing soon! (or if you are reading this later, already closed!) Don’t worry though, because I made a 360 walk-though video of the entire exhibition!

42 individual artists and 2 art duos were showing, mostly Indonesian artists. 33 Indonesian, 13 International. I was the only one from Singapore! #SgRepresent

The show was fun, one of the works is a video projection on a floor of the artist giving a lecture to dead people lol.

I shall tell the rest of the story with my photos, not very good photos though because my Samsung Note7 was banned on the flight to Jakarta. Samsung compensated me with a shitty Samsung Galaxy J Ace. Most of these photos were taken with my mum’s Note5. Photo quality still shys in comparison to the legendary exploding note7.

Wimo's photos of Indonesia's "Practice Kaaba" for Muslims to learn their rituals properly before doing their pilgrimage to Mecca. Wimo says that Indonesians have a good reputation for being orderly around "The Black Cube" and it may very well be thanks to these fake Kaabas.
