A Solo Exhibition By, Sinta Tantra
This exhibition marks a truly important point of my career. Although I have exhibited internationally in the past, it is the first time I'm showing work in Indonesia. I have quite an eclectic background; born in New York, our Balinese family lived in Indonesia, Singapore, America and the UK. Growing up I developed quite a strong affinity to Bali, considered it as one of my many ‘homes’ and quickly learnt that 'identity' was neither fixed nor stable. ‘Identity’ was not about where you lived or about where your parents came from; rather it was about developing a series of differences; establishing a role in the world that was culturally constructed, wholly transient and constantly changing in relation to a globalised economy."
