THEATRE OF THE SHIPS

Following his rising status in the local art scene, notably his signature bamboo-based abstract installation at Ciputra World, Jakarta, 2010, and in Art Jog 2012, Joko Avianto brings out even bigger scale of his work this year in George Town, Malaysia. Avianto’s “The Theater of Ships” is the main giant visual treat in George Town Festival (GTF) 2013. Situated between the iconic town hall and city hall, a municipal office gets a new radical exterior look with a facade consisting of around 3,000 bamboos. We are delighted to get the opportunity to enjoy this intricate design on the first day of GTF. The month-long festival stages a plethora of art works and cultural exhibitions across the city.
