A self-proclaimed action figure addict, Radi has made it a mission during his residency here to visit as many toy stores as he can, while resisting all temptations to add on to his massive collection. With 30 days of deprivation, haunted by sightings of figures, Radi will translate all of his pent up frustration into an imaginative project – the creation of his own action figures.

A reception with the artist will be held at Grey Projects, from 6pm – 8pm.

Radi Arwinda (b. 1983) is an artist working and living in Bandung, Indonesia.

Radi’s personal background sets an important context for his artistic practice. While he was born and raised in a family with a strong tie to the ancestral tradition of Cirebon, Radi has spent most of his adult life living in a modern, cosmopolitan city like Bandung. This dichotomy leads to a distinctive way of seeing things. For instance, he sees ‘culture’ as something not strictly distinguished by conventional sense of space and time, neither separated by categories such as ‘the origin’ and ‘the foreign’. Rather, it is always a mixture or synthesis of people’s ways of life rooted in different timeframes and places.
