Studio Visit

So again, perhaps not a studio visit, but the other day I met with Deden Hendan Durahman, an interdisciplinary artist and professor at ITB.

We met at S14 Gallery, in the home of Aminudin Siregar, curator at ITB.

Not really a photographer, or at least a photographer’s photographer, Deden is an interdisciplinary artist, working in painting, printmaking, and digital imaging.

A very articulate and interesting man, Deden has sophisticated ideas about the body and identity.  Our conversation focused on his photographic based work.

Employing a variation of offset lithography, he makes complicated digital montages that explore and mutate the body.

These montages explore the body inside and out.  Interesting too, were a series he completed while working in Germany, which explore his own identity, reconfigured to be many races, ages, and genders.  An interesting attempt to explore individual identity among many.

He also showed me a series that appears as straight photography, though were heavily composed and manipulated street scenes of Germany during World War II.

Glad to have my knowledge and experiences of photography in Java continue to grow.
