About This Event
Indonesia has enormous diversity and wealth in arts and culture, including in the field of fine arts. But unfortunately, this diversity in fine art was not accompanied by adequate efforts in archiving or documentation activities, so that eventually many of them were lost through the passing times.
Srisasanti Syndicate as an institution that engages in fine art through Srisasanti Gallery and Kohesi Initiatives are very aware about the needs of archive creation and documentation of fine art in Indonesia.
As an effort, Srisasanti Syndicate with the role as the producer has collaborated with Mes 56 artist collective and Studio Kalahan to produce an art archive about Heri Dono, Indonesia's renowned contemporary artist who has participated in hundreds of exhibitions around the world.
The result of the first collaboration between Srisasanti, Mes 56 and Heri Dono is a 45-minute film entitled "THE ENIGMA of HEDONISM", which narrates the values and attitudes in Heri Dono’s life as an artist.
This film has been privately screened 5 times and discussed by several critics and colleagues at Tirtodipuran Link during early to mid December.
