Yusra Martunus Biography

Yusra Martunus has a unique position in Indonesian sculpture and installation. Thanks to his attitude of always giving big importance to rigorousness and precision regarding the forms and surface appearances of his works. By means of it he disturbs people’s perceptions of materials and forms. Out of ropes or wire he can make three-dimensional objects richly associative of meanings. Or he will presents metals in seemingly soft and fluid appearance. He will sometimes put to test the conservative stances of the viewers concerning sculpture and painting: he makes a number of three-dimensional works that are so flat and clean that they look like paintings. Coupled with his habit of not giving his works titles, save series of numerical and alphabetical codes, Yusra’s works form invitations for those willing to wander in the realm of codes and signs that are intensely minimalist in nature.
