Biography

Named one of ArtReview Asia's FutureGreats 2014, the works of Boedi Widjaja (b. 1975, Java, Indonesia) connect to diverse conceptual references through his own lived experience of migration, culture and aesthetics. Immigrating to Singapore at the age of 9, Widjaja's works draw on his experiences, investigating concerns regarding diaspora, hybridity, travel and isolation. Often process-based and conceptually-charged, Widjaja's artistic outcomes take the form of multiple mediums ranging from drawings to installations, sound and live art.

 

Widjaja's practice has been described as "at once autobiographical and oblique;" as curator of Singapore Art Museum, Louis Ho, remarked, "the effects of displacement—its trauma, anxieties and melancholy—are channelled through materially-oriented explorations of the immigrant’s estrangement and experience." As a person of Chinese descent, Widjaja was sent abroad to escape the Sinophobic policies of the former Indonesian President Suharto's New Order. Widjaja spent much of his childhood and adolescence apart from both his parents and birthplace. Noting that he "never felt like [he] belonged to any people group," Widjaja's work references his own personal memories, and addresses the wider conversation about immigration and the immigrant. 

 

Boedi Widjaja currently lives and works in Singapore. He has shown in numerous exhibitions internationally, including: Singapore Biennale 2019; MAP1: Waterways (2017), Diaspora Pavilion, 57th Venice Biennale; Jerusalem Biennale (2017); Yinchuan Biennale (2016), China; From East to the Barbican (2015), Barbican, London; Infinity in flux (2015), ArtJog, Indonesia; and Bains Numériques #7 (2012), Enghien-les-Bains, France. The artist’s solo exhibitions include: Black—Hut (2016), Singapore Biennale Affiliate Project, ICA Singapore; Path. 6, Unpacking my Library 。书城 (2014), Esplanade, Singapore; and Sungai, Sejarah 河流, 历史, 源 (2012), YRAC S-Base, Singapore.

 

Recent accolades include: NTU CCA Residency Programme (2020/2021); Top 10 Winner, FID Prize (2017); Finalist, Sovereign Asian Art Prize (2015); ArtReview Asia FutureGreats (2014) ; Grand Prize (Sound Arts; with David Letellier), Bains Numeriques, France (2012); and First Prize, Land Transport Authority Beauty World Station (2012).
