Gajah Gallery Yogyakarta presents an exhibition to celebrate the talents of a group of young Indonesian artists namely Agung Santosa, Fika Riasantika, Gusmen Heriadi, Iabadiou Piko, Nofria Doni Fitri and Ridho Rizki. Entitled Knowing Incompleteness, the exhibition aims to explore the "incompleteness" in an artwork.

From a philosophical perspective, the theme represents the ever-present yet enigmatic ‘gap’ which exists between the works and their reality – this enigma in itself is interesting enough to explore, observe and experience. 

"Incompleteness" stresses a conviction within a reality of the postmodern paradigm: never whole, or finished, but rather always the opposite: unfinished, absent, fragmented, inadequate, sparse in the way that a piece of art reminds you of an ongoing process. The works of these artists show a common tendency towards the mysterious state of the incomplete within the discourse of the object, subject and space.

The exhibition opens on Aug 4 at 6.30pm.
