Iiu Susiraya: PORTRAITS ON SUNSET
Iiu Susiraja is a provocateur in the most subversive sense of the word. Her subject matter, at its core is domestic and unremarkable. A kiss, a flower, some milk, a little bacon- all everyday ingredients. It’s her calm unblinking stare that tests our observational limits. Through the most extraordinary ritual abstractions, her lack of affect implies our inadequacy. Susiraja’s work is arresting because it unapologetically explores the implications of vulnerability, empowerment, intimacy, and the mundane in a wholly unique perspective. Completely intentional and perfectly in charge, Susiraja leads us hilarious places we’d never imagine.
