8. Mama Bear #1 (2018)
One of Indonesia’s most acclaimed artists, Entang Wiharso (b. 1967) is widely regarded for his unique depictions of contemporary life, which employ a dramatic visual language that draws on both ancient mythology and popular culture. Mama Bear #1 explores how mothers try to protect children from outside interference and disturbances, as well as the emerging issues of our natural and political environment – the heated situation of fanaticism, racism and prejudice, especially for the minority. Entang is the recipient of a 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship.
