Live, work, and study on Wirundjeri Land, I'm an emerging Indonesian-Australian artist based in Melbourne. I was involved in a student theatre in Indonesia in the post Suharto era, where I learnt the importance of community based theatre to communicate and facilitate political and social changes. My arts practice focuses on raising awareness and challenging the overused of the word “common sense” in topics such as ethical consumerism and environmental ethics. My art projects explore the cause-and-effect of our everyday activities. They expose the exploitation involved and the negative impacts of those activities on the affected communities’ loss of respect and human dignity.
