Ari Tampubolon

Ari Tampubolon (b. 1997, Pekanbaru, Indonesia) is an emerging artist based in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia). Ari’s work considers the liminal voids she inhabits in transitioning and in diaspora as time-less sites of release, wherein she bends formal conventions of performance art and film to the unpredictable stasis of ‘island time’. Through a conscious framing of the body as cinematic medium, Ari’s practice tracks the legacy of cultural neo-imperialism, global soft power politics and its tangential impact on the body.
