Duto Hardono (b. 1985, Jakarta) is a conceptual artist who received his BFA in painting, Fine Art and Design from Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), Indonesia, in 2007 and his MFA from the same university in 2010. During his BFA, he painted on found objects as a move to go beyond the canvas; after completing his BFA he refocused to collage works and sound installations, the latter often with performative elements. Besides practicing as a visual artist, he teaches at ITB’s inter- media studio and he creates, produces and releases his own sound works on cassette tapes. Duto works with different materials, preferably low-fi, and media, including sound, drawing, video, ready-made and performance. Duto draws inspiration from a variety of sources: pop culture, conceptual art (including its creative mistranslations), anti-art movement, and a dark sense of humor. He participated in biennales in Shanghai (2012; he collaborated with Meiro Koizumi, their work was subsequently censored) and Yogyakarta (2013), he conducted residencies in Japan (2011), Egypt (2013) and Taiwan (2014), and he had two solo exhibitions thus far: Good Love, Bad Joke (at Selasar Sunaryo Art Space, Bandung, 2010) and Klab Lucifer (at Ark Gallery, Yogyakarta, 2014). He also performs live, for example at Goodman Arts Center, Singapore, 2014.
