Particles of Invasion
by Berlin-based artist Shira Wachsmann
24 Feb. – 3 Mar. 2018
Opening: Saturday 4 pm, 24 February 2018 in Sarang Building, Yogyakarta.
Organized by Kersan Art Foundation collaborates with OFCA International and PartNER Yogyakarta, we invite Shira Wachsmann for a two months artist-in-residence in Yogyakarta. In Wachsmann’s works, she focuses on the notion of “land,” in both meanings: land as material, as soil, and land as a place, as territory; land as natural and cultural, political and historical. Her practice is based on thorough investigation of historical documents. She integrates her findings in her works in order to critically expose the historical foundations of ideologies that even when forgotten or repressed, still construct identities today.
