Bandung’s phenomenal artist, Tjutju Widjaja returns with a line up her best paintings. Exhibiting her works which were created in the period of 2010-2017, her showcase is titled “PARRHESIA” and takes place in Pullman Jakarta Central Park. Launched on May 18th, 2017, the exhibition is also a part of Pullman’s global commitment to contemporary art. The title was taken from ancient Greek means someone who says everything one’s has in mind. A sincere expression from the heart and mind and delivered through one’s actions and discourse.
Tjutju’s canons are heavily influenced by her daily interactions with the world of children and their future. She often compares children’s mind health to what they do in their life and how their environment also affects their behaviour. Her emotional state also contributed in the output of her works, resulting in some her works containing gloomy and empty nuance, while the rest are vivid and crammed. Tjutju wishes to open the eyes of the society, especially parents to pay attention more regarding inevitable and invisible threats facing children today because those will shape them for tomorrow.
