La galerie de la Biennale

Indonesian artist Eko Nugroho has taken over La Sucrière with turquoise and navy blue: overlaid on the facade with its array of windows, the two colours come together in fantastic characters mixing Tim Burton and Indonesian graffiti. Part science fiction, part cartoon, Nugroho’s personae take their inspiration from robots and traditional puppets: a fan of Indonesian shadow theatre, the artist imbues his characters with a hip-hop/ breakdance energy that demonstrates the way the classics can exuberantly draw on urban art without doing themselves the least disservice. As Veduta’s guest artist in Vaulx-en-Velin, the artist has also worked with local youngsters to produce " The Rainbow under the Stone ", on the first floor.
