Re_ by STPI is a series of multi-platform viewing rooms. It brings together a selection of works from STPI’s inventory, placing them in new constellations for us to relook at them in fresh contexts. With a different focus for each iteration, the presentations will be refreshed regularly throughout the year. In the spirit of re-presenting these artworks in new situations, our first three viewing rooms will take place at the dynamic ArtSpace @ HeluTrans.

Bringing together eminent artists in the Indonesian art scene, all of whom are widely recognised, Close to Home shows the dynamic expressions from this vibrant archipelago.

In this manner, Close to Home is an ode to the distinct practices and utterances of the country’s energetic, artistic landscape.
