Meta Enjelita (Indonesia-Yogyakarta)
Meta Enjelita (b. 1994 in Jungkat, West Kalimantan). After completing her formal education in the Department of Crafts of the Indonesian Institute of the Arts (ISI) of Yogyakarta majoring in textile, the artist from Borneo chose to settle and work in Yogyakarta. In her artworks, Meta studied hidden meanings that intersect with aesthetic sensibility of textile, legitimacy, and implementation.
With an eco-art background, she is interested in the natural transformation process of corrosion on iron as a textile dye which might lead to endless possibilities in exploration. Her artistic practices involve experimenting and exploring textures with textile, connecting it with landscape details. Meta has collaborated with several sculptors to create a large-scale outdoor sculpture installation entitled “Andante Con Espressione” which was exhibited in the Jogja Street Sculpture #3.
Her work entitled “Ground Fire” has just been shown in the Mantra exhibition, Asana Bina Seni program, Pra Biennale Jogja XVI Equator #6 2021.
