Australian artist Sally Smart’s latest exhibitions in Indonesia are entitled, The Choreography of Cutting and P.A.R.A.D.E.
The exhibitions are organised by Honold Fine Art and will be shown at two separate venues.
The Choreography of Cutting comprises a large collage work that resemble a curtain and an installation of suspended puppets.
The works are said to be a continuation of Smart's previous series which began in 2015.
The series is said to present an alternative Western perspective on Indonesian history. The series places early 20th Century avant-garde choreography, costume and theatre design alongside traditional Indonesian shadow puppets.
P.A.R.A.D.E. features Smart’s most recent installation. The work is said to be inspired by a stage curtain painted by Picasso for the Ballet piece, Parade. Smart’s installation comprises a group of collage-figures on transparent textiles that creates “multiple images of performance.”
The exhibitions are said to reflect Smart’s relationship with Indonesian culture and the local contemporary art scene.
