Nugroho, Eko b.1977 / Trust
about this work
Eko Nugroho‘s work is strongly influenced by the daily life of Indonesian society, which is characterised by its strongly hierarchical and Muslim influence, while at the same time facing increasing globalisation and a westernised value system. Nugroho’s art engages exactly with this tension, specifically addressing the hypocrisy, fanaticism and ignorance of religion in the context of his socio-cultural surroundings. His discovery of embroidery has stretched the possibilities of his art -using flat strong colours, conveying a certain artificiality, loneliness and vulnerability.
