Garden Amidst the Flame
17 Sep 2022 — 04 Dec 2022
Auto Italia presents Garden Amidst the Flame, a newly commissioned moving image work and the first UK solo exhibition by Indonesian artist Natasha Tontey. Garden Amidst the Flame continues Tontey’s ongoing research into the ancient knowledge, technologies and cosmology of the Minahasa, an Indigenous nation in the North Sulawesi province of Indonesia. Drawing on her experience of the karai ceremony, which grants Minahasan warriors an armour of invincibility, the artist seeks to establish a queering approach towards gender, youth and ecology.
