Melati Suryodarmo | I am a Ghost in My Own House

The Bonnefantenmuseum is proud to present Melati Suryodarmo (1969, Surakarta, Indonesia) as the eleventh winner of the Bonnefanten Award for Contemporary Art (BACA). An artist with many talents, Suryodarmo’s intense, gripping performances have become her signature. Her work expresses shrewd social and political insights by means of poetic performance art.

Granting her the BACA is a welcome opportunity for the Bonnefantenmuseum to introduce Melati Suryodarmo to the public in the Netherlands and pay tribute to one of the pioneers of performance art. The BACA is Suryodarmo’s first major European art prize, and the accompanying solo exhibition is her first in Europe and the Netherlands.
