Greed/Rakus/Gierig curator Lisa Campbell-Smith talks to lead artist Tisna Sanjaya. Interview translation by Daffa Sanjaya.
The Jeprut artist community was founded in the 1980s in Bandung, West Java. Tisna Sanjaya is a leading figure in this community movement, and has gone on to produce many collaborative performance based art actions within this unique movement. Jeprut is a Sundanese term for a regenerative force. The performances were a rare blend of contemporary, ephemeral, immersive spaces for shared experience steeped in traditional Sundanese spiritual practice understood through the global scope of art as activism.
