“An artist lives not only in a world of fantasy, but also in reality.” Incorporating an unusual variety of influences, the work of EkoNugroho (b. Yogyakarta, Indonesia, 1977; lives and works inYogyakarta) envisions art as a participative process. Meanderingbetween street art, traditional crafts, theater, comic strips, painting,and sculpture, the artist articulates a gentle yet insistent politicalcritique. To convey his ideas, he marshals pink composite beings,lizard-like creatures, and infantile monsters that suggest theneoliberal alienation of our globalized society. Inventively mixing arange of media, Nugroho scrutinizes the structures of Indonesiansociety, visions of urban life, or forms of intergenerational community.Nugroho's presentation in the Indonesian pavilion at the 55th VeniceBiennale first brought him to the attention of European audiences.Nugroho's second monograph documents his creative evolution overthe past eight years and is the first book to include the numerouscollaborative side projects on which he worked with the curator EninSupriyanto. With an essay by Lisa Catt, a series of explanatory notes,a conversation with the artist by Matthias Arndt, and a foreword byAdelina Luft.
