MARC STRAUS announces an exhibition of new work by Indonesian artist Entang Wiharso. Internationally acknowledged as one of the most significant of his generation, this will be the artist’s first gallery exhibition in New York.

Wiharso speaks with a heightened sense of urgency, through many mediums: painting, sculpture, video, installation, and performance. The artist’s own experience living in both Indonesia and the US are deeply embedded in this body of work. Through this lens he examines the political and cultural landscape of his country. At its core is a deep understanding of the human condition. Upon viewing this work one is compelled to question the dipoles of love and hate, spirituality and ideology and different cultural perspectives. Often ambiguous, his work suggests a much larger and richer narrative.

“I depict the condition of humans who are often divided by complex, multilayered political, ethnic, racial, and religious systems: they co-exist yet their communication is limited and indirect. Figures are interconnected by intuitive as well as intellectual linkages, including ornamental vegetation, tongues, tails, intestines, animal skin patterns, fences and detailed landscapes.”
