Erika Ernawan is not as interested in our conceptual knowledge of the world as much as our felt understanding of it. Her work strips back and then layers raw physicalities one on top of the other; the naked body, pure pigments, simple tools and DIY structures blur into one another, connecting and interacting. Her works celebrate experiencing things not as we might know them to be, but rather as they simply are in front of us, as potentially complex, confusing, messy or rough.
