Wiyu Wahono is one of Indonesia’s most cutting-edge and experimental collectors. He started collecting art in the late 1990s when he returned to Indonesia after living in Germany for 20 years. Aiming to build a collection that reflects the zeitgeist, Wahono acquires works across all media from bioart to light art, sound art, performance art, scenography and audio visual installations.
"A good work of art is a good reflection of an era."
About the Artists
Deni Ramdani is an Indonesian artist born in 1992, who won the Bandung Contemporary Art Award in 2017.
His interest in the changing topography of his village in Bandung and its environs led him to carry out serious research into the perils of urbanization, resulting in performances and installations that explore issues of environmental damage and provide an outlet to relieve his frustrations.
