Contemporary Indonesian-born artist, Christanto works across the media of performance, installation, sculpture, video, painting and works on paper. He has exhibited extensively both in Australia and overseas and a recurring theme throughout his work is the disappearance of multitudes of Indonesian political dissidents during the mid-1960s purges, when his own father was lost and never seen again.
