BA (Hons) Fine Art: Painting
My practice revolves around political and socio-economical concepts, raising the issues of imperialism, globalisation, postcolonialism, and indigenous empowerment, particularly in Indonesia. Utilising performative and contemporary elements of art-making, I'm reclaiming the art space as an act of decolonisation and resistance against hyper-capitalistic culture. Weaving symbols and metaphors into the material, my practice often invokes juxtaposing double entendre that the viewers may decipher from each material; for example, the batik textile as a symbol of ethnic identity as well as being the product of Javanese imperialism. By contextualising the material, my practice reframes the archives of Indonesian history as a critique of blind nationality and chauvinism, provoking the viewers into questioning the canon and the propaganda; the colonised and the coloniser; the oppressed and the oppressor.
