Pearl Lam Galleries is pleased to present Plugged, a group exhibition featuring the works of contemporary Indonesian artists Andy Dewantoro, Aditya Novali, and Yudi Sulistyo. Inspired by the word “plug” and its semantic contradictions, the exhibition seeks to create a transitional space between a beginning and an end, bringing together the work of three artists of vastly different methodologies and mediums. The exhibition explores the multiple meanings in each of their works, including discourse on man’s relationship with nature, technology, and each other.
Andy Dewantoro (b.1973) and Aditya Novali (b.1978), two of the exhibiting artists, will be taking the visitors through the exhibition, “plugging” their works and practices. Well known for his enigmatic paintings of cinematic landscapes, Dewantoro will be debuting a new series of works, introducing an expanded colour palette to include brighter, earthier tones to his compositions. Novali’s works revisit and reframe issues he has previously dealt with. His background in architecture and industrial design is evident in his works – his sensitivity to structure, space, and knowledge of construction shapes his approach and aesthetic.
Inspired by his childhood memories of making toys from recycled materials and watching war-themed movies with his father, Yudi Sulistyo’s sculptural installations command the gallery space with their large and imposing presence. His works will also be discussed during the tour.
Exhibition period: 16 September - 30 October, 2016
