Melati Suryodarmo

Born: 1969

Hometown: Surakarta, Indonesia

Based in: Indonesia

 

Melati Suryodarmo’s performances deal with the relationship between a human body, the culture it belongs to and a constellation of its lived conditions. Through the presence, she compiles, extracts, conceptualises and translates some phenomena or subjects into movements, actions, and gestures that are specific to her performance. Melati Suryodarmo’s performances are concerned with cultural, social and political aspects, which she articulates through her psychological and physical body. Her performances feature elements of physical presence and visual art to discuss identity, energy, politics and relationships between the body and its environments.

Melati Suryodarmo studied at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig, Germany under Marina Abramovic. Suryodarmo has presented her works in various international festivals and exhibitions since 1996, including the 50th Venice Biennale, 2003, and “Marking the Territory” at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin.
