An artist duo based in Jakarta, Indonesia, Irwan Ahmett (b.1975) and Tita Salina (b.1973) have been working together since 2010. Their ephemeral interventions articulate sharp social commentaries on urgent issues concerning urban development, ecological catastrophes, political repression, colonial legacies, and the exploitation of human and ecological resources. Spanning from the prankish to the subversive, the duo can mobilise playfulness in the public sphere, irony in radioactive sites, and empathy in relation to conditions of human and environmental vulnerability. Their work has been exhibited at Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media, Japan (2018); Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw, Poland (2017); ST PAUL St Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand (2016); amongst other international venues.
Ahmett and Salina were Artists-in-Residence at NTU CCA Singapore in March 2018.
