ROH is pleased to share its participation at the inaugural edition of Art Jakarta Gardens 2022 with its first-ever sculpture garden iteration. Located at the heart of Jakarta’s public park, ROH presents its main roster of artists at the designated site-specific indoor tent as well as an outdoor presentation of Thai artist Dusadee Huntrakul in collaboration with Bangkok City City.
Our main gallery presentation (Booth B6) centers on the latest artistic exploration by a number of artists we have been working closely throughout the years, namely, Aditya Novali, Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo, Eko Nugroho, Faisal Habibie, Syagini Ratna Wulan, Syaiful Aulia Garibaldi, Tromarama, Uji “Hahan” Handoko, and Dusadee Huntrakul.
ROH is also supporting Social Note, a performance work by Uji “Hahan” Handoko and Adi “Uma Gumma” Kusuma in collaboration with Black Hand Gang at Art Jakarta Scene. Social Note is created based on observations and records of how humans obtain wealth in order to prosper. Individual notes of Social Note are fungible works of art that can be exchanged according to values depending on the time of purchase. Sales and purchases of Social Note take place exclusively at Art Jakarta Gardens 2022.
Outside at the sculpture garden, five of Dusadee Huntrakul’s clay sculptures are spread overlooking the lake as if following a lush trail after a light. Through these sculptures, the artist wants to imagine modest monuments dedicated to hope and vision for a better future in our region and globally along this path.
Art Jakarta Gardens 2022 will be on view starting from 7 until 14 April 2022 at Hutan Kota by Plataran.

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!
