Ratu Rizkitasari Saraswati (b.1990 in Jakarta, Indonesia)

Having participated in numerous exhibition since 2009, Saraswati has put her passion towards the making of performance videos and performances since 2011. She graduated from Institut Teknologi Bandung Faculty of Art and Design and received her Bachelor of Art on Printmaking in 2013. In the same year, she was one of the finalists of Indonesia Art Award.

To her, doing art is like a way to escape from the anxiety that wriggles within herself. Her art questions the authority of oppressors who, in twisted ways, dominate ourselves both mentally and physically. Through art she wants to express that everyone can liberate themselves and bring around the concept of one’s ownership over one’s very life.
