If you are expecting to see only faces peering back at you in the Am I Alone? virtual exhibition, then you will be disappointed. With its “self-portraits” theme, this virtual group exhibition – timely during this MCO period – shows how you can truly think outside the box when it comes to art and artistic expression.
There’s a woman crouched in a fridge, singing 1980s hard rock band Heart’s pop ballad Alone while clutching a dragonfruit so tightly in her hands that its red juice runs down her arms and onto her white dress. This is Indonesian artist Andita Purnama Sari Putri’s performance piece (in collaboration with Hotma Parulian Batubara), Clouds Number 11, where she laments a disconnection from society due to its impossible standards and expectations.
