War, Words and Form

At Salihara gallery the exhibition 'War, Words and Form' curated by the poet Sitok Srengenge can be visited until August 15. In this beautiful gallery, designed by Marco Kusumawijaya, work of thirteen Indonesian artists can be seen. These artists had to interpret poems to make their work. While Salihara is an oasis in Jakarta, it is murder to get there. A mad mad mad city. An intriguing city too. So it is ironic that in this mad city an exhibition on war can be visited in such a serene place.
