Digital Print Acrylic on Perspex

(born in Bandung 1986), is an artist who often uses her physical state (body), installation work, and other media as elements of her work. Her performance approach tends to push against the edges of morally-established meaning or understanding in society. This time Erika brushes paint over printed image adhered to Perspex. Motionless (2016-17) was born from the issue of time [spent] within a performance art piece that is dominated by “stillness”, such as what we often see in Marina’s and Ulay’s performances. By ‘freezing’ paint, the stillness is materialized, reminding us of Jackson Pollock’s process of creating his paintings. However, we find in Erika’s works a metaphor discoursing the body and the self.
