Wisnu Auri

Born: 1981

Hometown: Yogyakarta

Lives and Works: Yogyakarta

 

Wisnu Auri (b. 1981, Yogyakarta, Indonesia) has also participated in numerous group exhibitions since 2002, including in Seoul, Korea and Dubai, UAE.

As a conceptual artist, Wisnu expresses himself in both two-dimensional and three dimensional formats. From his past series of collages, the clean lines of his installations stand in stark contrast to his drawings, which appear disorganized and chaotic. The artist’s seemingly perfect display of everyday objects contains multiple layers of meanings in term of its word usage and aesthetics, which is an example of how Wisnu deftly combines ideas, language and visual elements in his art. There is a spirit of spontaneity throughout Wisnu’s art, Quite unusual in the Indonesian context nowadays.

In his latest exhibition titled I am just Doing Aesthetics, explores the ‘power of disturbing taste,’ which seeks to define judgments about art and the beauty of nature. Moving away from his previous series which focused on found-objects, this emerging artist returns to paintings yet continues with his fascination of nostalgia and the present. The struggle between beautiful and ugly, present and past and the evolution of art styles. In this exhibition, he focuses on taste as an individual's personal and cultural patterns of choice, and draws distinction between things such as styles, manners and works of art. Auri questions the viewer's taste and their ability to judge what is beautiful, good and proper.
