Melati Suryodarmo: Memento Mori

Opening on Saturday, 23 November, 2.00pm

STPI is pleased to present a solo presentation of a new body of print and paper works by seminal Indonesian artist, Melati Suryodarmo, opening on Saturday, 23 November.

A bold leap from her distinctively performance-based oeuvre, Suryodarmo’s new explorations in print and paper during her residency at STPI have resulted in a range of two- and three-dimensional works that retain traces of her performative marks. In particular, the artist examines the volatile relationship between matter and memory, and personal expressions of displacement. She takes an investigative and excavational approach towards abandoned spaces and the histories they carry, creating haunting yet beguiling impressions and forms that bring transformative relationships between site, body and memory to the fore.
