Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods & Jompet Kuswidananto NEW CREATION. celestial sorrows
Upon the invitation of the EUROPALIA INDONESIA Festival, Meg Stuart and visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto went on an artistic voyage of discovery across contemporary Indonesia. Imaginary and invisible spaces – and the voices that resound within them – are the starting point for an adventurous exploration into uncharted territory.
Jompet Kuswidananto is a versatile artist who works in media ranging from installation and sound to performance and theatre. Each of his works researches the history of Indonesia and the complexity of contemporary existence in a globalized world. His practice focuses on themes like politics, colonialism, power and mass mobilization in Indonesia after president Suharto’s resignation.
