On Saturday October 6, 2018 the opening of the exhibition 'Rootless: A dream of water and distance' by the artist Ms. Antonella Pedetti was carried out at Komunitas Salihara, Jakarta. The event was attended by a significant number of people from various fields related to the Indonesian culture. The speeches were in charge of Ms. Antonella Pedetti, the Director of Programs of the Salihara Foundation, Mr. Nirwan Dewanto and the Argentine Ambassador to the Republic of Indonesia, H.E. Ricardo Bocalandro.
The premise of the exhibition is to address the multiple traditions and paths of people who cross different cultures and regions of the world such as Argentina and Indonesia, highlighting the links that bring our countries closer despite the geographical distance. The works of art transmit these ideas through an intense use of the range of turquoise colors conveying ideas, expressed in canvases, acrylics, plastics and ropes, among other materials. The exhibition will be open until Tuesday, October 16th 2018.
