My Art Crush 1

Posted: July 5, 2008 in All and Sundry

I met Arahmaiani during the Woman as (Mythical ) Hero workshop in Silliman University, Dumaguete City last June. I find her works very provocative at first look. When I talked to her during the first day of the Performance Art workshop she conducted at Foundation University, I discovered that her artistic philosophy is so renegade, I was immediately drawn to her life and her ouvre. This is one true rebellious nomad (in every sense of the words).

Haupt and Binder writes in Universes-in-universe:

“Arahmaiani is a key figure in the current art scene in Indonesia. She gets around a lot and although her international reputation mainly comes from her performances, she also works with painting, drawing, installation, poetry, dance, and music…”
