In addition, ROH is also delighted to present TECHNO GAME, a site-specific body of work by Udomsak Krisanamis (b. 1966 Bangkok, Thailand) specifically conceived for Art Basel Hong Kong 2024. Shaped by the era of 1970s electronic music, Krisanamis combines collage and painting to create his own distinct artistic language. The presentation marries the language the artist has refined over three decades spent in Chicago, New York, and Chiang Mai with a new-found dynamism which blends the deep complexity of his process with lightness and freedom, a chaotic serenity. Known as much for his dense labyrinths of circles and letters sprawling endlessly across his canvases and decisive strokes of colors as he is for his love of ball games, Krisanamis’ Kabinett presentation proposes a world where painting, golf, and beats co-exist.

Udomsak's Kabinett presentation is enriched by contributions from Chomwan Weeraworawit.

As Chomwan Weeraworawit described in her essay, "Painting for Krisanamis, is life. As is golf, and other ball games, music, family, friends, food, and the pursuit of joy. The complexity eventually becomes so simple as the layers eat into each other, in this convergency, a new energy, a new harmony is found. The rules of a game can be complex, but they can be learnt, there is no guarantee of an outcome, yet one must continue to play. The act of painting, as well as golf and any other game, is one of devotion and challenging the lines that are set."

“Here's a game to imagine: each playing field, though structurally similar, is materially different in every detail. There are bunkers and hazards. You play on your own, alongside others, but not with them, and not really against them. You have a set of specialized tools to choose from, and a knowledge of the way the territory has been marked by previous players. The way to begin is to start walking. Calculating strokes. Hitting little balls into the sky.”

- Chomwan Weeraworawit

Born 1978, Surakarta, Indonesia
Lives and works in Surakarta, Indonesia

Aditya Novali received his Bachelor of Engineering in Architecture from Universitas Katolik Parahyangan, Bandung, Indonesia, in 2002; and an IM Master of Conceptual Design from the Design Academy Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in 2008. Novali works with a variety of materials, often first conceiving an idea and then finding the right medium to transcribe his vision. His background in architecture influences his sensitivity to structure, space, and knowledge of construction – key elements of his approach and aesthetic. Addressing themes such as boundaries, identities, materialism, and urban life, Novali’s work interacts with the viewer and transforms with each viewing.

Novali’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and institutions both locally and internationally. Some of his previous exhibitions include recent solo presentations New Obsolescence: ADITYAVOVALI at ROH, Jakarta, Indonesia (2023); WHY at Tumurun Museum, Solo, Indonesia (2022); ME:DI:UM with ROH Projects at Liste Art Fair, Basel, Switzerland (2019); Significant Other at ShanghArt Gallery, Singapore (2019); Caprice with ROH Projects at Art Basel Hong Kong: Discoveries, Hong Kong (2018); and ACRYLIC at ROH Projects, Jakarta, Indonesia (2016); and notable group presentations Dhaka Art Summit: বন্যা/Bonna, Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, Dhaka, Bangladesh (2023); On Muzharul Islam: Surfacing Intention at Dhaka Art Summit: Seismic Movements, Dhaka, Bangladesh (2020); The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, QAGOMA, Brisbane, Australia (2018); DIASPORA: Exit, Exile, Exodus of Southeast Asia, MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai, Thailand (2018); The 15th Asia Art Festival: Multiple Spectacle Art from Asia, Ningbo Art Museum, Ningbo, China (2017); Imaginary Synonym, Tokyo Wonder Site, Japan (2016); Aku Diponegoro, National Gallery of Indonesia, Indonesia (2015); Shout!

Novali was nominated for Best Emerging Artist Using Installation at the 2016 Prudential Eye Awards in Singapore; Finalist in the 2010 Sovereign Asian Art Prize, and awarded Best Artwork in the Bandung Contemporary Art Awards (BaCAA) in the same year.
