Uji ‘Hahan’ H. Saputro - Silent operation

Uji ‘Hahan’ Handoko Eko Saputro sees the art world as a sophisticated network of systems of influence, creating a complex interdependent industry ruled by what he terms ‘The Holy Trinity’—the collector, the gallery and the artist. This work is an investigation of these structures and how ‘The Holy Trinity’ are driven by the twin desires of both critical and commercial success.

Hahan developed detailed sketches for a large group of neon light works that would transform an entire gallery - presenting an immersive visual analysis of how the art world works. We worked with Hahan for nine months through the works artistic development, its approval and the detailed design phase, with only one face to face meeting. We managed the works construction in Australia and it was first installed as a feature of the Contemporary Worlds Indonesia exhibition in 2019.
