Order and AfterPast Projects
Upcoming Indonesian artist Jompet Kuswidananto is part of an energetic, community-driven art scene in Yogyakarta and is renowned for his multimedia installations that often combine video, sound and mechanized elements.
Especially commissioned by Cryptic for Sonica 2015, Kuswidananto’s work deals with the elusive representation of Indonesian identity. Inspired by continuous transition, Order and After is focused on the period known as Reformasi, a democratic change that allowed for greater freedom of expression within the arts.
“…immediately seductive, with darker suggestions of coercion and violence behind the work’s surface beauty.” theartsdesk.com
Premiered in 2015 as part of Sonica, Glasgow.
