On Asphalt is a solo exhibition of video and installation by Indonesian artist Jompet Kuswidanonto. Kuswidanonto’s work examines the “spaces where contestation, negotiations and juxtapositions among different cultures take place.” His new works take inspiration from The Great Post Road, a roadway built in Java in 1808 and serving as a route to distribute goods and people. This “urban culture” that resulted serves as the inspiration for the works on display.
