Jumaadi: the unaccounted sea


Jumaadi: the unaccounted sea

17 Apr 2024 – 14 Jun 2024

Jumaadi is an Indonesian/Australian artist who lives both in Sydney and Yogyakarta and works fluidly across painting, drawing, paper cuts, buffalo hide, performance, animation and installation. Jumaadi's Indigenous Javanese heritage informs his practice, as well as his personal experiences and the colonial and political histories of his homeland. Recent works and performances have addressed passages of water and those whose journeys depend on it. With a poetic sensibility and symbolism, Jumaadi weaves together personal iconographies of human and organic motifs exploring themes of place, conflict and belonging.
