Artemis Art

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight - Ajim Juxta

Though based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Artemis Art ini­tially aimed to pro­mote con­tem­po­rary art in their home­land as well as in In­done­sia with early col­lec­tions de­riv­ing from the ar­ti­san town of Yo­gyakarta. To­day they have broaden the scope of their art­work to in­clude other South­east Asian coun­tries, pro­vid­ing plat­forms to fur­ther em­pow­ered a va­ri­ety of artists and to help raise the level of art ap­pre­ci­a­tion in Malaysia. Their tal­ent ros­ters in­clude the lo­cal vis­ual artist, Ajim Juxta, the top three win­ner of the Young Art Work at this year's Young Art Taipei, whose body of work cov­ers sev­eral medi­ums like pen and ink, found-ob­ject sculp­tures, and paint­ings on can­vas with in­spi­ra­tion taken mostly from dystopian re­al­i­ties; Dedi Sufri­adi from Palem­bang, South Su­mat­era, win­ner of Young Art Award at Young Art Taipei 2015, whose nar­ra­tives are driven by his­tor­i­cal iconog­ra­phy as well as cur­rent ones; and last but not least the up-and­com­ing In­dra Dodi from Padang, West Su­mat­era, who will bring his won­drous col­lec­tion of un­af­fected child-eyes paint­ings, sim­ply ab­sorb­ing the de­tail of the world around us with­out pass­ing judg­ment.
