The artist

Hardibudi (the artist's pseudonym) is an Indonesian artist born in 1968 who lives in the vibrant city of Jakarta. From a young age he developed a keen interest in the arts, experimenting with various disciplines before focusing on painting and photography. He took his first photographs in 2003 with a camera belonging to his family. Through the dehumanised representation of motionless figures posing without expression, his works satirise today's modern world. His use of photo editing software allows him to fully control this precise aesthetic. In order to intensify the emotional reach of his works, Hardibudi eliminates all superfluous elements. In the same way, the deliberate choice of a palette of primary colours avoids any potential distraction. The composition of his images makes use of pure lines that merge into the subject, thus erasing any notion of hierarchy between the various elements present within the image.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

Between August and September 2018, Indonesia organised the 18th edition of Asian Games, the second largest multi-sport competition after the Olympic Games. On this occasion, Hardibudi created a series of images entitled “Water-Polo Training Center” and inspired by the daily activity of water-polo athletes during their training. Through the use of a palette in pastel tones varying from yellow to blue, the Indonesian photographer projects the spectator into a sanitized world in which athletes have made the choice of renouncing any extravagance that could unmask them. Like inert and robotic figurines, they move to the same rhythm in the aquatic training centre. The treatment of primary colours, the effect of repetition and flattening of the elements refers to Andy Warhol’s reproductions and to the Pop Art movement that began in the 1950s. This image depicts the athletes on their way to the showers. Their gestures are synchronised in such a way that it is as though we were watching a military parade.
