Leonard Suryajaya

  Influenced by the cultural milieu of inter-ethnic relations in Indonesia, Leonard Suryajaya’s work explores intricate and complicated layers of selfhood in the context of cultural background, intimacy, sexual preference, and personal displacement. By utilizing photography, video, along with elements of performance and installation, and through the use of personal narrative and story telling, his work challenges and deconstructs the perspective we use to scrutinize and observe our roles in a transnational global world. Suryajaya received his MFA in Photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Learn more about Leonard Suryajaya’s solo BOLT exhibition Don't Hold On to Your Bones.
