Spend Sunday Afternoon in the Museum of Childhood

ETRE et AVOIR, Nicolas Philibert, July 31, 16.30 

The most unvarnished cinematic portrait of childhood, Etre et Avoir/To Be and to Have  documents with intimacy, grace and candor the daily goings-on at a one-room school in rural France.

The school's student body consists of a handful of older and younger children who are taught, in alternating shifts, by a kind, caring teacher named Georges Lopez, and Philibert's eavesdropping camera presents these kids without judgment and without over-sentimentalization, allowing their hilarious, touching and unpleasant everyday antics to speak for themselves.

From pint-sized JoJo struggling to remember that the number seven comes after six, to a family trying to help their math-challenged son finish his homework, the documentary captures virtually every aspect of being a kid (and being an adult around kids): the awkward and painful process of making friends, the discomfort of being reprimanded for misbehaving, the immature squabbling and jealousy found in peer interaction, the grown-up fear of accidentally neglecting or harming a child, and the awe-inspiring wonder of experiencing the world for the first time.

The Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute, Jakarta

Classical Guitar Concert


Maestro Giordano Passini


Thursday, 18 August 2016


Auditorium IIC Jakarta

Jalan HOS Cokroaminoto no. 117, Menteng, Jakarta 10310


Free admission

Giordano Passini, was born in 1986 and started to study music at 12.  He started with piano and after a year passed to classical guitar. He studied in many conservatories, from the one in Frosinone to the Conservatory of Santa Cecilia in Rome.  He has held concerts at various Institution, Festival and Musical Events in Italy and abroad.  He plays a guitar made by the Neapolitan guitar maker Alessandro Marseglia. 

"Giordano Passini is a guitarist that deserves attention. His musicality, already strong at the beginning and made precious by its own sensibility, is evident even in the choice of the repertoire of his concerts.

These aspects, corroborated by an elegant technique, allow him to elaborate bright interpretations that start from a guitar tradition well known to him and are projected in an original, consistent and elegant world."

Ermanno Brignolo – guitarist, music critic and artistic director

ROH Projects - Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo, Maria Taniguchi, and Patricia Perez Eustaquio Group Exhibition Invitation

Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo, Maria Taniguchi, and Patricia Perez Eustaquio
Curated by Gary-Ross Pastrana
4 - 28 August 2016 ,  Opening : Thursday, 4 August 6pm onwards.

ROH Projects, Equity Tower 40E, Jl Jend Sudirman Kav 52-53, Jakarta 12190

In collaboration with Silverlens Galleries, ROH Projects is pleased to present a group show curated by Gary-Ross Pastrana, that brings together three celebrated artists from the region: Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo (Bandung); Maria Taniguchi (Manila) and Patricia Perez Eustaquio (Manila). The three artists' distinctive accumulative acts in their respective studio practices display an in-depth exploration of the physical properties of their chosen materials.

Through the utilization of photography and video as supplementary layers, Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo, who collects fragments such as resin, minerals, volcanic ash particles, creates a multilayered expansion of painting to embody his gestures and document the process which had taken place, serving the purpose of a relic: preserved and hardened through time.

Maria Taniguchi's works demonstrates similar sensitivity towards the slow-formation of nature's elements by contrasting it with her machine-like approach in creating objects ('brick paintings'), in order to indicate a new kind of relic, one that is wrought through human persistence and concentration. She also shows a video that incorporates elements of visual deconstruction through the tactile addition and removal of layers.

With her graphite drawings on paper, Patricia Perez Eustaquio examines what has become part of her own nature – the artist's studio and the materials that surround her, as she thoroughly meditated the accumulation of a variety of paint blobs through a series of photographs she had taken. She then articulates these images on fabric, revealing a further nuance, sensitivity, and tactility to how were works may be experienced.

Whether fragmented, layered, or accumulated, the processes involved in their works are accompanied by a kind of certainty—that the ideas behind them are derived from a close inspection of their materials. As relics, it could be said that their works have become the vestiges of our time: meticulously man-made yet ardently inspired by nature. And bringing their works together may reveal facets that belong to the Southeast Asian region in terms of how the three artists featured, namely Sunaryo, Taniguchi, and Eustaquio, continually explore materials, methods, and concepts to arrive at new forms.

Celeberating Chris Marker | Kinosaurus

Celebrating Chris Marker 
View this email in your browser

LE JOLI MAI, Friday, July 29, 7pm, 18+ 

In Le Joli Mai, Chris Marker and his camera operator Pierre Lhomme shot 55 hours of footage interviewing random people on the streets of Paris. The questions, asked by the unseen Marker, range from their personal lives, as well as social and political issues of relevance at that time. As he had with montages of landscapes and indigenous art, Marker created a film essay that contrasted and juxtaposed a variety of lives with his signature commentary.  

Film theorist Roy Armes has said of him: "Marker is unclassifiable because he is unique...The French Cinema has its dramatists and its poets, its technicians, and its autobiographers, but only has one true essayist: Chris Marker." July 29 is the birth and death of Chris Marker.
