Hello my name is Riyadhus Shalihin, you can call me Riyadh. I live in Indonesia, in Southeast Asia, and my artistic work now, that I develop after I have graduated from master of Visual Arts in Institut Technology of Bandung.
I try to research about, plant and animal, who is living in the ruins of envinronment, or like in the ruins of building, or in the disaster of sites, such as: river, neighbourhood who is infected by the disease of the industrialization.
So basically I tried to make a non-human research into theatre, or into dance, or in anykind of performing art or performance art, maybe.
So I think, the chance to have Phd in Zurich Uniervsity Of The Arts. I hope that it can put this issues, that is like having problem within Indonesian sites, as a specific issue, but I can change or like make a distance of spatial.
Because the issue it’s too close to me, that is very embodied in my life. So I need have pre-PHD artistic research, to have like a distance, to make this more clear, but not like become an objective. I think its like “subjectivity of the objective”, but the PHD in Zurich University Of The Arts for mr its important to make this more have a broader perspective, or in a broader discussion, also develop, in the studio laboratorium, to make this issues that can involve in a more multi-perspective discussion.
