Ancient Batiks from Danar Hadi Museum

A collaboration between the Jim Thompson Art Center and the Danar Hadi Batik Museum from Indonesia, POLA – Patterns of Meaning is a group exhibition of two Indonesian artist collectives that looks to present the importance of Batik in Indonesia's historical and cultural identity. Ace House Collective explores the batik manufacturing process in a contemporary approach through a wax-made fountain sculpture, while Cahaya Negeri who discovers the differences between the decorative and conceptual patterns in batik through an installation of 18 pieces of cotton fabric.

Also participated in this exhibition are two Indonesian art individuals: Restu Ratnaningtyas whose work speaks about gender, economic and politic through a large piece of batik made of cotton fabric, indigo, synthetic color and wire to construct the fabric, and Eldwin Pradipta whose work conveys the cultural and historical commodification of the colonial city of Bandung in Indonesia through three videos.
