Widi Pangestu

Widi Pangestu, Mainly working with papaer with traditional technique known as Paper-making. My experimentations take place inside the spectrum of material-crafting and the medium of paper, which focuses on image - making, object-making and the details of the experimentation process as a work of artistic research. It explores the possibilities in material-crafting through different traditional (manual) preferen ces, while colliding them with rhetorical experiences encountered during the process. My works are then presented to emphasize how human relations are carried out through the transformation of paper materials. The biomorphic quality in the work and the fragility it presents are a form of intersection between organic principles and the practice of an industrial society.
