> DESCRIPTION

A reprise of the confronting and moving, larger-than-life sculptures of human suffering by Dadang Christanto, first seen here at the launch of the new Asian galleries in 2003 and again in 2005 and 2010.

Christanto’s works speak eloquently for the victims of oppression and social injustice. The 16 male and female figures in this installation represent displaced victims, mutely carrying the bodies of innocent men, women and children who have been killed – testament to the inhumanity of man, a silent monument to communal grief.

Born in Indonesia and based in Australia since 1999, Christanto has a significant reputation internationally. His artistic oeuvre includes painting, drawing, performance, sculpture and installations.
