Performance Beauty of the Battle
CODA Museum, Apeldoorn
In close collaboration with curator Wim van der Beek and choreographer Aymeric Aude, I have performed a dance-battle during the exhibition Beauty of the Battle at CODA Museum in Apeldoorn.
Together with dancer Filippo Buonamassa, I performed in front of a gigantic sculpture, which
I created especially for this exhibition. The performance is an extension of my sculptures, exploring the contrasts between violence and tenderness, male and female, struggle and contemplation and my Indonesian and Dutch roots. This project is also focused on my
collaboration with Wim van der Beek. Together we create a new and very personal multidisciplinair artform, combining three of my talents; sculpture, martial-arts and dance.
We regard the performance at CODA Museum as a try out. Wim and I continue to perfect and to broaden this project, now also adding literature to it and
shifting this new artform into the theaters.
