To June 14 Jumaadi: the unaccounted sea.
Jumaadi is an Indonesian/Australian artist living in Sydney and Yogyakarta, working fluidly across painting, drawing, paper cuts, buffalo hide, performance, animation and installation. Jumaadi’s Indigenous Javanese heritage informs his practice, as well as his personal experiences and the colonial and political histories of his homeland. Recent works and performances have addressed passages of water and those whose journeys depend on it. With a poetic sensibility and symbolism, Jumaadi weaves together personal iconographies of human and organic motifs exploring themes of place, conflict and belonging.
