Art Fair Philippines 2023

The last time we were a part of Art Fair Philippines (AFP) was back in 2020, just before the COVID 19 pandemic lockdowns worldwide. Artemis Art is pleased to announce that we’ll be a part of the 2023 edition, taking place at The Link, Ayala Center, Makati, from 17 to 19 February 2023, with the VIP Preview and Vernissage on 16 February. 

Art Fair Philippines 2023 is our first major international art fair for the year, and marks the fourth time Artemis Art is taking part. This time around we will be featuring works by Dedy Sufriadi, Syahbandi Samat, and Taufik Ermas. While Dedy and Taufik have previously participated as part of our artist lineups, Syahbandi makes his AFP debut this time around. A sneak preview of works selected may be found below, while the complete collection of works for the fair will be revealed on the day of the VIP Preview and Vernissage on February 16.

For more information about our participation, contact us via email at in**@ar***************.com, or through the other communications channels listed on this page. As the art fair is a ticketed event, visit the Art Fair Philippines website for complete visitor information.

Dedy Sufriadi

(b. 1976 in Palembang, South Sumatra, Indonesia)

Contemporary abstract artist Dedy Sufriadi has a wide repertoire of work and styles, encompassing the use of many different elements. The many disparate visual styles that can be found across his vast body of work can be tied together by one common trait – his mastery of color and composition. Dedy is perhaps best known for his work related to text, an element of modern life that humans are subject to at virtually every waking moment, whether realized or not.

This year marks the artist’s fourth appearance at Art Fair Philippines, showing with us in our 2018 and 2020 group presentations, as well as in Hypertext: Requiem, a solo showcase in 2019.

Art Fair Philippines 2023 continues the momentum Dedy’s career has experienced in 2022, the artist making major art fair debuts in Taiwan (Art Solo 2022), and in Europe with Personal Structures: Reflection (organised by the European Cultural Centre Italy [ECC Italy], a Venice Biennale parallel even), plus being included as part of our lineup for Asia NOW 2022 in Paris, France.

Syahbandi Samat

(b. 1992 in Malaysia)

His use of the ordinary ballpoint pen has made self-taught Malaysian artist Syahbandi Samat one of the more unique Malaysian artists currently practicing, and whose works are almost always instantly recognizable.

Syahbandi’s works currently delve deeper into his own psyche, projecting his inner thoughts, experiences, and aspirations. Successfully breaking away from the need to “please” with his artistic creations, Syahbandi addresses issues that are important to him, such as corruption, the environment, and of course, introspective works dealing with his own life experiences.

This is Syahbandi’s Art Fair Philippines debut, where in addition to his works on canvas we will also be presenting the artist’s sculptural interpretation of objects from his ballpoint artworks, providing an additional facet to the artist’s growing repertoire.

Taufik Ermas

(b. 1984 in Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, Indonesia)

The dialectics of space and delving into human psychological scarring and memories are among the ideas central to the body of work by Indonesian artist Taufik Ermas. Having survived a near-death tragedy during the major 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake that caused his home to collapse, burying him alive for a short period of time before being rescued, the life- changing experience has become an important touchstone in his artistic career as he continues to deal with the trauma experienced more than a decade and a half ago.

Canvas augmentation is a key feature in his artworks, either through his layer/contour technique, physical ridges (or its inverse, niches) created on the canvas surface without tearing through or cutting the canvas; or through physical canvas and frame modifications to create negative spaces within his visual narratives.

Both styles of canvas augmentation are presented in our participation this year, the second edition we are featuring Taufik as one of our exhibiting artists, after his debut in Art Fair Philippines 2020.
