This exhibition, When I think about the death of painting, I play, is staged by three Indonesian artists, Wisnu Auri, Wedhar Riyadi and R. Yuki Agriardi and curated by Alia Swastika.

According to the gallery’s press release, their work invites us to go beyond the visual reality that we often take for granted and see through a particular perspective. Play is a way of “cutting up” reality, cramming the details that are forgotten in our memories, or thrusting fantasies that seem foreign yet close.
