ROH RIPPLES: Continuity in Indonesian Contemporary Art

ROH Projects is pleased to be participating in the inaugural edition of Taipei Dangdai Art Fair, which opens between the 17th to 20th of January 2019. In this fair we will be showing Ripples: Continuity in Indonesian Contemporary Art, a survey of some of Indonesia’s most significant artists from a wide array of generations and perspectives. This presentation will include Aditya Novali, Agus Suwage, Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo, Eko Nugroho, Faisal Habibi, Handiwirman Saputra, I Nyoman Masriadi, Jumaldi Alfi, Rudi Mantofani, Syagini Ratna Wulan, Syaiful Garibaldi, Tromarama, Uji Handoko, Wedhar Riyadi, and Wiyoga Muhardanto. We are also excited to show a special presentation that looks at continuity in sculpture-making practices from the perspectives of two artists whose practices discretely converse with each other: Ichwan Noor and Bagus Pandega.

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!
