exhibition at Semarang Contemporary Art Gallery

‘Natural’ and ‘Forced’ Assimilation

Pluralism means not assimilating the population or citizens into a single new unified identity after the old one has been forgotten. (G.M.)

I have always been fascinated with culture within the greater framework of the history of human civilization. While art is only a small, but integral, part of this comprehensive discourse, I always want to position art as a way of understanding, exploring, contemplating, and embracing the vehicle of cultural history: civilization. History has become essential as a coordinate in mapping the future of my art! Political and economic history, and the social changes that accompany them are dominant factors that constantly inspire cultural development. At the same time, art becomes the commentary and never-ending testimony of culture.

(Nindityo Adipurnomo)
