TAUFIK ERMAS

INDONESIA

“I have always been fascinated by the shape of the human body, fragile yet surprisingly strong even in extreme situations. These impressions derive from my personal experience as a survivor when a very strong earthquake hit Yogyakarta in 2006. More than 5,400 people died and 15,000 were injured. I was trapped for a while, without oxygen and close to death, below the ruins of my house. I’ve been hurt in a way that never shows on my body, with wounds that are deeper than anything that bleeds. It was a traumatic experience, which changed my values and many things in my life. The incident has been transformed into the underlying motivation and inspiration for my art.”
