Terra incognita

by Timotheus Anggawan Kusno
2022, 22’
Presented at the 16th edition of Lo schermo dell’arte, 2023
Film part of VISIO – European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images 12th edizione, 2023
Produced by the Han Nefkens Foundations-Loop Barcelona, 2022
The artist’s re-enactment of mass mobilization during the succession to the Indonesian regime is accompanied by a narrator’s recitation of an anachronistic poem. The production of this work of fiction reveals the overlapping and obscuring of memories, resulting in a cacophony of voices and distortion of memory. Produced by Han Nefkens Foundations-Loop Barcelona.
Timotheus Anggawan Kusno (1989, Indonesia. Lives and works in Amsterdam).
In his artistic practice, Kusno weaves narratives that transcend the boundaries between fiction and history, imagination and memory. His inquisitive approach probes the coloniality of power and explores the veiled elements that remain unseen.
After a MA in Cultural Studies, he is embarking on a PhD at the University of Amsterdam.
His work has been exhibited in international Institutions such as: Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam); Mumbai City Museum; Brussels Center for Fine Art; Inside-Out Art Museum (Beijing); ILHAM Gallery (Kuala Lumpur); Centre d’Art Contemporain (Genève); Art Hub Copenhagen. In 2021, Kusno received the Video Production Award from the Han Nefkens Foundation on the occasion of Loop Barcelona. His work is part of the permanent collections of MMCA – National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Seoul) and MoCA – Museum of Contemporary Art (Taipei).
