Art Radar profiles three internationally-recognised Southeast Asian artists presented in an exhibition curated by Filipino artist Gary-Ross Pastrana in Jakarta. The works on show demonstrate a thorough understanding and exploration of materials, which has resulted in unconventional and cross-cultural forms.
Known to expand notions of contemporary art by representing established and emerging talents, Silverlens Galleries and ROH Projects have recently launched a group show at the Equity Tower 40E Jakarta (Indonesia) that includes the work of Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo, Patricia Perez Eustaquio and Maria Taniguchi. On view until 28 August 2016, this collaborative exhibition does more than illustrate the similarities and contrasts that exist in Indonesian and Philippine contemporary art. More than anything, it rouses viewers by putting forward what other forms could result from familiar (if not, cliché) materials such as graphite, resin, acrylics and video clips, among others.
