Indra Liusuari

Born 2000, Palembang. Lives and works in Melbourne. Indra Liusuari is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice includes audio-visual media, documented performance, installation, and publication. Conceptually, Liusuari is focused on critical discourses around the presence of white supremacy in the gay subculture and the gentrification of ethnic enclaves, which manifest via absurdist exaggeration and satirical self-exotification. Brutalist architecture and industrial design, audio-visual remnants of the 1990s and early 2000s, and the underground rave scene have become paramount influences in their practice. Liusuari has been awarded the Cultural Visions Grant from RMIT Culture, the Liquid Architecture’s Graduate Prize, and a First Class Honours for their research on problematising [gay] Asian men’s fetish for white homosexuals using Brutalism and Eurodance. Liusuari has presented works with Immigration Museum, Blindside, RMIT Culture, Pink Dot Singapore, West Space, and recently with Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien (DE) and unthaitled x soydivision Berlin.
