Syagini Ratna Wulan Indonesian, b. 1979

Syagini Ratna Wulan was born in Bandung, Indonesia. She studied fine art at Bandung Institute of Technology, graduating in 2001, and earned an MA cultural studies from Goldsmith College, University of London, graduating in 2006.
Since the beginning of her artistic  career, Syagini  Ratna Wulan has been known for her non-linear visual idioms. In her art, which is idiosyncratic, enigmatic  and “feminine,” she explores issues of fantasies and human unconsciousness by means of textual inter- pretation. Both her penchant for absurd and fantastical narratives in films and music and her intellectual interest in the Surrealists run like a red thread  through  her oeuvre. Simultaneously  stylish and subversive, her installations  clearly  connect  her to contemporary  pop  culture,  which  is  not  surprising  given 
the fact  that, apart from working as a furniture-and interior designer, she is also known as a fashion stylist for a number of indie music groups in Bandung.
