Ratri Notosudirdjo // Installation & Performance artist, curator
@saynotosu (ID, NL)
Ratri Notosudirdjo (she/her) was born in Jakarta, Indonesia. Following her family’s immigration, she was raised in different towns and cities across North America. Returning to Indonesia at the age of 14 marked a paradigm shift, shaping the mechanism of her cultural switch. Her research and practice engage in de- and postcolonial theory, centering on contemporary mechanisms of the cultural and poetic identity and often forming new languages, new rituals or new meanings from them. The works reconstruct these new forms through the exchange and bridging of cultural realities, resulting from cross-disciplinary work processes that engage collaboration with an array of young creatives in Rotterdam. Performances, text and interventions are often the result of these crossings. Currently, she is engaged in organising artistic interventions with Stichting JUNCTION @junction_rotterdam, a platform dedicated to creating art interventions from interdisciplinary research initiatives from and by cultural workers, artists and researchers in The Netherlands.
