Art Jakarta Garden: Art Jakarta

7 - 12 February 2023
Inspired by her Balinese heritage, artist Sinta Tantra creates a sculptural installation that unifies past, present and future, offering a window to another world, a portal to another universe.
Walking around the sculpture, we see a rectangular steel frame standing proudly between two blue glass panels, overlapping like ocean tides or rivers that merge.
Incense sticks and flowers reflect the idea of abundance and joy, ritual and purpose. The Balinese black rock represents a natural order, balance, grounding our sense of self - it is also a nod to Tantra's ancestors, who came from a lineage of Balinese stone carvers. In this installation, we see all elements represented: water, earth, fire, and air.
