Eko Nugroho: "Pleasure of Chaos"

Last week we attended a very successful and well presented show by Eko Nugroho at the Ark Gallery in Jakarta. The show, titled "Pleasure of Chaos" featured large scale paintings of monstrous characters in various states of unpleasantness. In our opinion, the stars of the show were his massive tapestries, representative of flags and family crests. The show sold out soon after opening, partly due to being blessed by one of Indonesia's most influential curators, Jim Supangkat. Unfortunately, we were without a camera during the opening. Check out the Ark Gallery for more of his work, and to see photos of the installation.
