ArtJog | 9

June 01, 2016

Yesterday I went to Jogja National Museum with Galih to attend another art exhibition called ArtJog. It's their ninth exhibition and my second one (I attended their eighth last year). Yes, I may not look like an artsy kid but I do enjoy looking at magnificent artworks and roaming around the exhibition. It has always been an amazing experience visiting ArtJog because it's probably one of the most prestigious art exhibition here and you will always be mesmerized by literally everything.

Okay, no more chit chats! Here I took some pictures from that day. Enjoy!

This is Galih, my travelling partner that day c:

The size of the painting is too wide it won't even fit my lens!

Oddly satisfying

This is a 4D artwork that looks like a 2D work...

The two pictures above are both still the same artwork. There's this painting that if you look from afar, it will create a scene like the one pictures in the first picture. But if you take a closer look, even closer than ever, you'll realize that the painting itself is assembled from Javanese writings. It is such a mind blowing work that I can't even think how did the creator come up with this kind of idea. I mean difficulties aside, he has to know how to write Javanese writings which in my opinion, is something really hard to do. I wish I can read them just to know the meaning behind the writings.

Aesthetically pleasing

    1. Hihi, memang keren-keren, selalu bikin geleng-geleng kepala deh! Ga heran walaupun ini termasuk pameran yang bayar (dan bayarnya ga murah), tetep aja setiap tahunnya rame pengunjung ;D

  2. I always wanted to go to ArtJog, and missed it again this year. But thanks to this post, I finally catch some glimpses of what actually happens there. Thanks for sharing this! :)

    1. Oh my, it lasts for the entire month lho padahal :( Makanya kenapa aku bisa selama empat tahun terakhir ini selalu sempet ke Artjog karena dia pameran yang lama banget hehe. Oh well, semoga kamu akhirnya bisa ke Artjog yah! It's worth the visit banget!

  3. I enjoy going to art museums. I like to be always in awe and to learn at the same time.

    This is a nice place to visit.

    1. Thank you so much! We definitely have the same feeling with going to the museums!
