Rummana Yamanie as a Performance Artist
Her venture in the visual art realm followed work in Singapore Theatre scene. After her return to her hometown Jakarta, she was given an opportunity to deploy her talent more broadly as an artist.
Here she found her connection between working in the vicinity of contemporary practice and performing arts. More often than not, her works rooted from the theories of psychology and the cognitive description of human behaviour. Classical Music is often used to complement the narratives, which is something that she takes pleasure from.
But art is not technology; it is useless but vital. It is through the art that we communicate what it feels like to be alive
-Anthony Gormley, visual artist
