Look Into the Ireland’s Eye – A New Exhibition Exploring the Idea of the Visual Arts

Story by


In collaboration with ISA Art and Design, the Embassy of Ireland in Indonesia and Jakarta Land presents “Ireland’s Eye,” an art exhibition featuring six emerging artists whose artistic talents were forged in the postgraduate Fine Art studies in Dublin, Ireland. The inspiring artworks are showcased at World Trade Center 2 Jakarta from 17 March to 17 June 2022.

Anishta Chooramun, Jamie Cross, Louis Haugh, Vanessa Jones, Bara Palcik, and Ciara Roche – they bring a nuanced and fresh approach to these questions of individuality and globalization, history and identity, and how artists create works about themselves and the places they call ‘home’ in the 21st century.

These artists are recent graduates from the Irish fine art master’s programs at the Institute of Art, Design, and Technology and the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland. The Institute of Art Design and Technology is the home of National Film School, one of Variety magazine’s Top Film Schools for 2020–the first time that an Irish school has made it onto this prestigious roll call. The National College of Art and Design, founded as a Drawing School in 1746, is Ireland’s oldest art and Design institution, a vital member of the European League of Art Institutes, a recognized college of University College Dublin, and situated in a renovated Distillery in the heart of Dublin city.


The Ireland’s Eye exhibition wouldn’t be happening without the support and encouragement from the Ambassador of Ireland to Indonesia, His Excellency Mr. Pádraig Francis and the Deputy Head of Mission Mr. Odhrán McMahon at the Embassy of Ireland in Indonesia; Syahzan Kudus, Director of Jakarta Land, by providing the venue and encouraging art exhibition to keep going on at World Trade Centre Complex; and lastly Deborah Iskandar of ISA Art and Design who dreamt up the idea of connecting the worlds of Irish and Indonesian arts and education with an exhibition in the World Trade Centre, Jakarta.
