HERI DONO

 

Born in Jakarta (1960).

Heri studied in the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design at Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta (Indonesia Institute of the Arts Yogyakarta). He studied with the legendary Sukasman, who inspired him with the Javanese wayang.

 

He is the recipient of the Prince Claus Award for Culture and Development (1998), the Unesco Prize in 2000, and the Anugerah Adhikarya Rupa (Arts Award) from the Indonesian Government (2014).

 

The artist has joined in 270 exhibitions including 27 international biennales, among others the 50th Venice Biennale in the Arsenale Zone of Urgency, Guangzhou Triennial (2011); Gwangju Biennale (2006 and 1995); Sharjah Biennial (2005); Taipei Biennial (2004); Venice Biennale (2003); Asia Pacific Triennial (2002 and 1993); Yokohama Triennial (2001); Havana Biennial (2000); Shanghai Biennale (2000); Sydney Biennale (1996); Sao Paolo Biennial (2004 and 1996).

 

His works are populated by astonishing characters and strange juxtapositions, the fantastic and absurd joined by the everyday to create new and vibrant stories in which the artist will insert his own critical remarks on socio-political issues both in Indonesia and abroad.
