Shadow of the Past: Tibet Version 2, 2018, 80 x 120cm, print on paper 


ISA Art & Design proudly presents you with an exhibition on performance art and photography.The photographs featured in this exhibition ranges from archives to performance photography pieces, created as far back as 1977 and as recent as 2019. This show focuses on the two main categories where performance interplays with photography: as an archive that construct its historical nuance and as an independent piece of art. The wide generational range that this exhibition includes invites us to look deeper how performance art has changed in the past 50 years.

This exhibition would be part of our online exhibition lineup. As an online-offline gallery, we strive to present online shows that are equally curated to our on-site ones, while taking in consideration which mediums would be best presented in an online format.

FX HarsonoWriting in the Rain, 2012, Performance Video Stills/ Photography


FX Harsono is a seminal figure in the Indonesian contemporary art scene. Since his days as a student, he has been an active critic of Indonesian politics, society and culture. Always updating his artistic language to the current new social and cultural contexts, Harsono's biography and family history are often the basis of his art, pointing at the disconcerting situation of minorities, the socially underprivileged, against the backdrop of Indonesia’s history and political development. This intersection of the personal and the political is particularly evident in his most recent works.

Furthermore, his oeuvre can be seen as a constant questioning and reflection of his position as an artist within society. He was part of GSRB (Gerakan Seni Rupa Baru), the art movement that revolutionized Indonesian Art Scene. His artworks are collected by various museums such as Macan Museum, featured in the 'Awakenings' exhibition at the National Gallery Singapore as well as his solo show 'Testimonies' at the Singapore Art Museum.
