Conversation with Leeza Ahmady

Yogyakarta-based Heri Dono (b.1960 in Jarkata), one of the most prominent contemporary artist working in South-East Asia, has been a leading figure in the Indonesian art since the early 1980s. His multi-media practice, which notably includes wayang kulit, or shadow puppet theater, often draws upon mythologies of the Ramayana and Mahabharata and folkloric traditions to create works of social critique.
