Timoteus Anggawan Kusno

Timoteus Anggawan Kusno

    Timoteus Anggawan Kusno (b. 1989) renders narratives which stretch the liminal spaces of fiction and history, imagination and memory. Working across the mediums of installation, drawing and moving image, Kusno questions the coloniality of power and what remains left unseen. He has exhibited work in museums and international biennales, including the Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels, Belgium; Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Mumbay City Museum, India; and the 13th Gwangju Biennale, South Korea. His works have been collected by public institutions including the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) Seoul, Korea, and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) Taipei, Taiwan.

    Kusno is currently collaborating with the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, Netherlands) developing a project that responds to the artifacts and long history of resistance to colonialism under the title “Revolution!”. Kusno has also recently been announced as winner of the 2021 Han Nefkens Foundation - Loop Barcelona Video Art Production Grant 2021, in collaboration with the Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona; Inside-Out Art Museum, Beijing; MoCA Taipei; ILHAM Gallery, Kuala Lumpur; Centre d’Art Contemporain, Genève and Art Hub Copenhagen.

    Alongside his artistic practice, since 2013, he has been developing Centre for Tanah Runcuk Studies (CTRS), a (fictional) institution which conducts experimental studies on a “(lost) territory” in the Dutch East Indies called Tanah Runcuk, involving historians, ethnographers, fellow artists, curators and writers. Kusno lives and works in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
