ART: ‘Trans-Figurations: Indonesian Mythologies’ at the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton
The Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton continues its regular exploration of emerging artistic scenes in distant countries with this exhibition presenting an energetic and effervescent generation of Indonesian artists. Consisting of more than 17,000 islands and a population of 240 million inhabitants, Indonesia is the fourth most highly populated country in the world. Nowadays, it is a secular democracy in which all religious movements live side by side. At the centre of the island of Java is the city of Yogyakarta, an artistic centre marked by its ancient beliefs, its history and its geography, which are a continual source of inspiration for artists. There, at the foot of the Merapi Volcano (one of the most active in the world), lives the majority of the eleven artists whose work are displayed here.
Until 23 Oct. Open Mon-Sat, noon-7pm, Sun 11am-7pm.
