 INDONESIAN sculptor Joko Dwi Avianto has been getting accolades for his unique bamboo installation called Theatre of Ships which he designed for the George Town Festival (GTF) 2013.

The giant structure at the Esplanade has caught the attention of many people, including Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng who praised Joko for the art work which he described as eye-catching and impressive.

“His installation idea mirrors the development of Penang since it was founded and trading ships started coming to the island. This piece is a reflection of the rich cultural heritage, historical progress and prosperity of Penang.

“Penang is what it is today because of its strategic location, the sea and the trading ships, ” Lim told a press conference at the Town Hall yesterday.

Lim also praised GTF director Joe Sidek for putting up a better programme for the festival this year.
 

Sidek thanked the state government and Penang Municipal Council for being brave in accepting the idea to have the big-scale bamboo installation for the festival.

“We want to make the George Town Festival public, accessible and free for all. You don’t have to be rich, intelligent or belong to any social class to see art work,” he said, hoping that local artistes will be inspired by Joko’s work which is the Indonesian’s first installation outside his country.

Joko, who was present, said the structure is the biggest installation he had done so far.

The 15m-tall and 22m-wide structure, which resembles the bows of ships, is made from 3,000 pieces of bamboos.

It took Joko and 14 other people more than three weeks to build it.

Lim welcomed the public to attend the unveiling of the structure at 8pm tonight. A landscaping art work called Fireflies at River Lalang is scheduled to be unveiled at the same time.
