Theresia Agustina Sitompul

(b. Indonesia, 1981)


Theresia Agustina Sitompul, atau yang lebih dikenal sebagai Tere, merupakan seniman Indonesia sering menggunakan teknik seni grafis dalam karyanya. Ia mendapatkan gelar sarjana pada 2007 dan gelar magister pada 2011,

keduanya dari Institut Seni Indonesia di Yogyakarta. Selama bertahun-tahun ia

telah bereksperimen dan memperluas praktik seni grafisnya di luar konvensi

dengan mengubah material grafis seperti kertas, kain kasa, kertas karbon, kain,

dan pelat logam menjadi buku, instalasi, atau bahkan patung. Karya-karyanya

mengeksplorasi keagenan manusia di tengah interaksi sosio-kultural yang

semakin kompleks sekaligus hubungan spiritual dan religius yang ada di dalamnya,

terutama dalam perannya sebagai seorang ibu dan seniman. Karya-karya Theresia

mengangkat tema-tema seputar kebahagiaan, kekhawatiran, dan juga

harapannya dalam hubungannya dengan anak-anaknya.

Pada tahun 2001, Theresia turut mendirikan kolektif seni grafis Yogyakarta,

Grafis Minggiran, dan pada tahun 2007 ia juga turut mendirikan Art Merdeka Studio.

Selama karirnya, ia telah memenangkan berbagai anugerah antara lain, "The 1st

Winner Belanja Grosir sambil Plesir, Mural Competition ITC", Surabaya (2005);

"The 3rd Winner Indonesia Triennial Printmaking IV" (2012); finalis "Indonesian Art

Awards - 'Idiolect'" (2013); dan finalis "the 2012-2013 Sovereign Asian Art Prize" (2013).

Karya barunya, Kembara Biru (2022), ditampilkan dalam Museum MACAN UOB

Children Art Space, yang merupakan sebuah instalasi interaktif yang didedikasikan

untuk anak-anak. Ia kini tinggal dan bekerja di Yogyakarta dan juga mengajar di

Institut Seni Indonesia di Surakarta.
