Yoga Mahendra & Arwin Hidayat

The exhibition with works by Yoga Mahendra en Arwin Hidayat reopens from March 3rd up to April 16th, 2021, after the long winter lockdown caused by the covid19 pandemic.

The main focus of the exhibition is the large work by Yoga Mahendra, which consists of 7 separate painted panels. The solemn appearance of the work attributes to the symbol of the republic Indonesian, the mythical bird Garuda, yet depicts bizarre worlds of endless compounded figures, in a united chaos of life and expectations. Yoga Mahendra’s works are characterised by the bizarre figures shaped by the endless smaller universes of sci-fi and comic characters. 

Arwin Hidayat’s inspiration lies in the primitive depictions of living creatures and raw emotions. In this exhibition you will see not only drawings, but also a number of batik cloths by the artist Arwin Hidayat. The unique batik cloths are hand-painted by the artist and created with traditional methode.
