ellipse art projects is a non-profit organization that conducts and supports actions in favor of contemporary artistic creation.
The opening of the “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika” exhibition took place on the evening of November 23 in Jakarta at the Bentara Budaya gallery, a new contemporary art space created on September 26, 2023 by the Kompas Gramedia group. The opening of this group-show was so successful that it will run until December 8.
In collaboration with a local partner DeKa Kom, this group show highlights the work of 12 women artists around a theme based on the Javanese adage, also the country’s national motto, meaning “Unity in Diversity”: “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika”.
Embodying the diversity of Indonesia through an artistic language combining tradition and innovation, these young women celebrate the history of the territory and the power of female expression in today’s society. From sculpture to embroidery, including painting and installation, the works exhibited form a perfect visual illustration of “Unity in Diversity”, like this abundant Indonesian art scene.
