簡介：Handiwirman Saputra was born in Bukittinggi, Indonesia in 1975. He lives and works in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. A member of the Yogyakarta based artist collective, Jendela, Saputra works with sculpture and painting, exploring the relationships between the object and image. Using various materials such as plastic, fiberglass, hair, cloth, yam, wire and wood, he constructs, often, modestly scaled objects, exploring the irrational and the strange in his random combination of materials, creating a unique visual language in the process. These objects then re-presented in his paintings, further questioning the complex relationships between objects and their representation.
Handiwirman Saputra’s work has been exhibited widely in Indonesia, including the CP Biennales (2003 & 2005), as well as internationally, in Vietnam and Japan.
