Invisible Presence

Invisible Presence

Born in Sumatra, Taufik Ermas works with different formats to articulate memory empowerment, prompting dialectical questions about the self. He combines elements that utilize the negative physical space as critical components of visual dialogues. Taufik presents a series of paintings informed by the three aspects of spirituality: suffering, awakening, ascending. These works elaborate socio-political issues that leave traces of memory to the physical and spiritual body. Taufik received recognitions from the Indonesia Art Awards in 2010 and at the 2020 Sovereign Asian Art Prize in Hong Kong.
