Inès Katamso,
between nature and dream

Born in 1990 in Yogyakarta, Inès Katamso began her career creating murals before turning to smaller formats, giving her access to a more intimate scale to skim her inner world.

Drawing on both a scientific and spiritual perspective, the artist studies micro-organisms and fossils to question the harmony of our environment and reconsider the concept of human life.

Specialist in the Indonesian art scene, she was the artistic director of the Jakarta Biennale in 2021 and participated to the publication “Indonesian Women Artists: The Curtain Opens” in 2007.

A visionary committed to the younger generation, Farah Wardani has also curated many exhibitions.
