Statement

I am an artist and activist based in Indonesia.

My works include writings and performance works using aesthetics as a framework for investigating the questions of how everyday life images, sounds, languages as such retroact to politics.

Organization
Peretas
Co-Founder and Chairperson

​2017 - present

​Peretas is an intersectional, cross-borders women’s collective that focuses on bringing together women working in the arts, with the goals of reviving values and cultivating strategies that foster the criticism and imagination needed to encourage social change within the art and cultural movement as well as the larger movement.

 

Our aim is also to increase the visibility and participation of women and non-gender-conforming persons by establishing creative space and adopting suitable technology that will enable each person involved to empower themselves and others.

 

We envision ourselves as a hub that will facilitate an organic network of women and non-gender-conforming persons working in the arts throughout the country and eventually tap ourselves into the art communities in the region and globally.
