Dito's solo exhibition, Finding Stillness, was prepared for many months and was the reason of my routine trip back and forth to Jakarta this year.
Last week, I spent 8 days in Jakarta (with a bonus trip to Bandung with Budi) to prepare the opening reception. There were daily dramas of witnessing a lady's failed attempt to commit suicide, stolen laptop and left handphone, flooded gallery, and many more (just normal stuff that could hapen in Jakarta, you see..). But then again, the opening went smoothly and warmly.
The week was a happy one, a yummy one, and full of love. Between the tight schedule of media tour, preparation, displaying, and eating out (yes, eating out is Dito's other job as a culinary reporter, so, it's on the schedule); we still manage to meet some friends, book shopping, and visit some exhibitions at the city. My bestie, Wid, was there along the week to support Dito while taking all these pretty snapshots and some privately-kept embarrassing pictures. Two days before the opening, I got a rare chance to write the wall text for Dito's exhibition (yay! my first art writing outside Lir Space). You can read it here.
All and all, I am so pleased that Dito mark the end of the year on a nice note by holding a solo exhibition. He totally earns it. Now, let the pictures do the talk!
