Visiting Jakarta Biennale 2017 and Gardu House Graffiti in a search for my true art feelings…

Jiwa means soul, and that’s the theme of this years Jakarta Biennale. Most of the art are installations displayed in big locations like the Gudang Sarinah Ekosistem warehouses, the Museum of Fine Arts and Ceramics or the jakarta History museum.

My first atempt to find the Jiwa of art in Jakarta started in the Gudang Sarinah, where I met faces from paper and stone, arthouse films, unknow standing objects and here and there some sculptures, and paintings at the wall.

But it all started with a horrible traffic jam, on a weekend day. They can pop up anywhere unexpected. But traffic comes along with Jakarta, no escape, and I stopped already long time ago with complaining about it. Just go with the flow. Check your smart phone inside out till the battery is empty, but never leave home without a bottle of water, just in case you need to survive a night on the road.

The mission is only halfway cause the unexpected traffic jam blew up my schedule so I will complete this soul searching for my art feelings in a second video next week.

Now, if you made the text till here, how do you feel about the art at Jakarta Biennale (or just here in the video)?

Malaysian Grand Prix 2017: Max Verstappen wins Formula One

For the first time I watched a Grand Prix live and lucky me, the one I supported did win as well. Even more lucky; he did his brilliant overtaking move on Lewis Hamilton right in front of our K1 stand at the first turn. To celebrate this, the board Turn 1 was taken by some supporters as a souvenir. After the race doors to the grid were opened and audience speeded over the circuit to the Grandstand where national anthems were played and Champaign bottles were opened. It was one big party and pretty sure I will add another GP on my bucket list soon.
