Ending her residency at Redbase Foundation Yogyakarta, Citra Sasmita will hold her solo exhibition entitled Under The Skin. This exhibition is the final presentation of Citra’s residency in Redbase Foundation Yogyakarta for approximately three months.
Citra Sasmita is a young artist born in Tabanan, Bali March 30, 1990. She took her formal education at Udayana University of English Literature Department and Department of Physics at Ganesha University of Education. Although she hasn’t took a formal education in art, she began her artistic career as a short story illustrator for Bali Post since 2012. Her works mostly show women’s world theme, especially in the context of Balinese culture that is strongly dominated by patriarchal nuances and sexuality.
During her three month residency at the Redbase Foundation Yogyakarta, Citra has explored the theme of women in the context of Javanese culture, which is reflected through the social relationship between the female body with space and time. Citra perceives traditional market as a social contestation space for women who are soft but egalitarian as well. For her, the traditional market is an open space to bring people together from diverse backgrounds.
Despite her deep exploration of women in the context of Javanese culture, in some of her works, Citra still uses her previous visual idioms. For her, this is her body’s experience in absorbing two different cultures
