Duto Hardono

Duto Hardono (b. 1985, Indonesia) is a conceptual artist and educator based in Bandung, Indonesia. Originally trained in painting, his practice traverses the two-dimensionality of collages and drawings to the dynamic incorporation of readymade materials such as everyday objects, old musical instruments, records and cassette tapes in his installations and performances. Often drawing reference from popular culture, conceptual art and anti-art movements, his works are peppered with touches of dark humour and irony in its aim to examine the relationship and paradoxes between humans and time through sound.

Hardono has participated in numerous international solo and group exhibitions including: Biennale Jogja XII Equator #2: Not A Dead End, Jogja National Museum, Indonesia (2013) and The 9th Shanghai Biennale: Reactivation, Bandung Pavilion for Intercity Pavilion, China (2012). Solo exhibitions include Klab Lucifer, Ark Gallery, Indonesia (2014) and Good Love, Bad Joke, Selasar Sunaryo Art Space, Indonesia (2010). He was nominated for the Asia Awards Young Creator Grand Prix, Tokyo Designers Week (2014).
