“My heart was full of joy when I saw the exhibition that my team and I had been planning come to life.”
Museum MACAN Foundation made headlines in both local and international media when “Yayoi Kusama: Life Is the Heart of a Rainbow”, the first large-scale exhibition of Yayoi Kusama ever presented in Indonesia, opened to the public in May 2018. Visitors flocked to the museum to see over 130 works by the Japanese artist, ranging from paintings to interactive installations, created in a span of 70 years. It was a huge success for the museum, and of course for the Chairwoman of the Foundation, Fenessa Adikoesoemo. All their hard work truly paid off, “My heart was full of joy when I saw the exhibition that my team and I had been planning for months, even years, come to life,” she said.
As a person who juggles two jobs, at AKR Land and Museum MACAN Foundation, Fenessa is pretty disciplined when it comes to time management. “I’ve been working full time since I graduated, and I had been exposed to the family business even before that. At this point, I can absolutely manage my work-life balance.” Influenced by her father, Fenessa has a deep love for art and especially museums. Work is her number one priority but she manages to make time for her family and loved ones. She also sets aside some time for herself. “I love diving. But when I’m home, playing with my dog Pepper, a mini Schnauzer, is my simple happiness.” Fenessa Adikoesoemo wears TAG Heuer Carrera.
