Yeo Work­shop

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight - Marcin Dudek

Not con­tent in sim­ply pro­mot­ing the sin­gu­lar work of their artists, Yeo Work­shop aims to fur­ther en­gage and ed­u­cate the art-lov­ing crowd—es­pe­cially the ones in their home­base, Sin­ga­pore—through their res­i­dency pro­gram and course-based art club, the Arnoldii Arts Club, fo­cus­ing on art his­tory, art pro­duc­tion, and art mar­kets. For this year’s Bazaar Art Jakarta, the Au­drey Yeo-owned gallery will be rep­re­sented by Pol­ish artist, Marcin Dudek, and In­done­sian painter, Maryanto. The for­mer is mostly known for his sculp­tures and in­stal­la­tions de­pict­ing the com­plex­i­ties of space—and the way we in­ter­act with it—that are in­spired by his child­hood ex­pe­ri­ence liv­ing in the te­dious in­te­ri­ors of the house­hold he stayed in. Dudek is a grad­u­ate of Cen­tral Saint Martin, Lon­don, and his art have been show­cased, among oth­ers, in Moscow Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art and Kun­stler­haus Karls­burg. Mean­while the In­sti­tute of the Art, Yo­gyakarta grad­u­ate, Maryanto com­bines his­tor­i­cal re­search and myth for his role as a sto­ry­teller through his mostly black and white in­stal­la­tions com­prised of paint­ings, etch­ings, and char­coal draw­ings, in­vok­ing the ties be­tween nat­u­ral re­sources and how it af­fects a coun­try and pol­i­tics. He re­cently par­tic­i­pated in Jakarta Bi­en­nale and Art Basel Hong Kong 2016, he will also hold an­other solo show at Yeo Work­shop in Novem­ber.
