Eko Nugroho

Politically charged work from Indonesian Artist Eko Nugroho.  I saw one of Eko’s multimedia installations in Paris at the MAM a few months ago.  The amount of work on show was pretty impressive, his prolific output really shows through in his exhibition with a synergy between his paintings, drawings, sculptures and video art.

“To be honest, I do not deliberately choose to be political or to adopt political messages in my work,” Nugroho explains. “My everyday life here in Indonesia is dominated by issues such as poverty, social injustice, religious fanatics, corruption, and it is difficult to turn away from it.” theme magazine

Eko’s solo show at ARNDT Berlin will be running until 2nd June and at the ‘Migration’ Group exhibion at the Museum Art Contemporary Sydney until 10th July.
