A series of conversations about Indonesia-Australia relations in visual arts

Separated only by the sea, Indonesia and Australia have lived as neighbouring countries for hundreds of years. Despite the geographical proximity, how much do we actually know about each other - especially in the context of visual arts?

Santy Saptari Art Consulting and Asialink Arts are proud to be working together in organizing a series of online conversations with key players in the industry from both countries. The series aims to create cross-sectoral knowledge sharing while addressing issues encompassing the Indonesia-Australia relations within the world of visual arts.

Savanhdary Vongpoothorn, Interlace III,

Savanhdary Vongpoothorn at S.E.A Focus Singapore

24 - 27 Jan 2019

S.E.A Focus 

Block 9, Lock Road, Gillman Barracks, Singapore, 108937

Niagara Galleries Melbourne, in association with Santy Saptari Art Consulting and John Cruthers present works by Savanhdary Vongpoothorn  at the inaugural edition of S.E.A Focus Singapore.    


Born in Laos in 1971, Savanhdary came to Australia in 1979. Inspired by the Australian landscape, Lao traditional textiles, Indian miniatures and, in recent work, Japanese Buddhism, Savanhdary’s work illustrates a subtle and complex interweaving of visual form and cultural signification, representing stories of experience, memory and identity. She uses several novel techniques, the most notable being perforation, where the canvas support is pierced from behind with a soldering iron to form a raised grid pattern across the paint surface.
