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.
