Citra Sasmita – S.E.A. Focus

Citra Sasmita

Indonesia / Yeo Workshop

Citra Sasmita is a Balinese artist concerned with unravelling the myths and misconceptions of Balinese art and culture. She is also deeply invested in questioning a woman’s place in social hierarchy and seeks to upend normative constructs of gender. Due to her interests and research around these themes of identity and agency, the artist’s oeuvre is often peppered with provocative themes that challenges the status quo, whether in its aesthetics or the messages that it conveys. Citra will be showing works done in Kamasan painting style, a tradition in Balinese art, but with a feminist twist.
