Lawangkala

Selasar Sunaryo Art Space
Jl Bukit Pakar Timur No. 100, Ciburial, Cimenyan, Bandung
16 September - 23 December 2018

September 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of SSAS.  To commemorate the establishment, SSAS presents Lawangkala, a solo exhibition by Sunaryo at Gallery A, B, and Wing Gallery. The exhibition will highlight the latest work of the maestro, featuring installation and multidisciplinary works with bamboo and fiber-based materials to manifest the idea of ephemerality, in particular symbolizing how human’s life is just a stop by through the passage of time.

Selasar Sunaryo Art Space (SSAS) is the realization of Sunaryo’s longstanding dream to contribute to the development of arts in Indonesia. Today, as an institution, SSAS has become a key player in the arts and cultural landscape of Indonesia. The word “Selasar” reflects an open space that connects one space with another. The ultimate concept of “Selasar”, also reflects the aim of the space to connect artworks with audiences and to bring different cultures together. Since established in 1998, SSAS is inseparable with the image of Sunaryo, an artist born in 1943 in Banyumas, Central Java, Indonesia. He started his artistic career by studying in the sculpture studio at the Sculpture Studio, Art Department, Bandung Institute of Technology (FSRD ITB). After finishing his studies, in 1975 he continued to study marble sculpting technique in Carrara, Italy.
