Indonesia's widely exhibited international artist Entang Wiharso creates provocative works that speak volumes about the human condition.
From universal issues of power, loss, dreams and love to broader categories of ideology, philosophy and identity, Entang delivers personal reflections and social critique by integrating Javanese narrative tools of wayang kulit (shadow puppetry) with contemporary materials. Never Say No presents the sheer diversity and scale of Entang's latest project at STPI where concepts were reinvestigated under new conditions. His experimentation with the multifaceted medium resulted in raw and compelling representations of the world, told through an instantly recognisable visual vocabulary of contorted bodies - with slogans and icons of tropical plants, weapons and fences, amongst other things.
