Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

In the artworks of Boredom Therapy,Nano Warsono has created a fictional world that brings surreal and imaginative experiences to the audience. These creative stories and journeys make out from this pandemic situation, make us believe that this world is still a better place to stay.
Nano’s God Of Medicine is about the irony of life and the ambiguity during this pandemic and the race to produce the first Covid-19 vaccine. Back to the past, every culture has their mythology and their gods, in the likes of Asclepius, ancient Greek God of Medicine, and Baosheng Dadi, Chinese God of Medicine, and closer to home, Java Bathara Aswan from the traditional puppet show. They all came into play in this painting, in Nano’s fusions of repertoire; a profusion of metaphors, juxtaposing the myth, the history and the fiction with all the modern characters and symbols

Artist Profile

Based in: Yogyakarta

Nano Warsono emphasis is on socio-political contexts. Nano’s art life process is about fictions and histories. He works with binaries of anti-capitalist, anti-materialist, anti-west position, on comparison of capitalism/materialist equal to economic and social ills, predator and victim, East versus West, etc. Nano may have influenced ideologically by post-colonial theories, his concerned of the global world order affecting Indonesia, and the economics, politics, social problems, ecology, and mass culture closer at home make up his visual language on in his works. Nano’s indulgence in the global pop culture is evident, his roots in graffiti art and graphic novels were famous, even till today. Nano creative used of the riches of mass media collaterals for his artistic consumption are always closely related to the socio-political environment he is in, but at the same time is the negation with his imagination that new story, fiction or history emerged from that.
Nano is also a lecturer and artistic director at the Visual Art Faculty, ISI Jogyakarta.
