Description: In this, the titular hand emerges from the bundle of cords, giving a sense of helplessness and struggling. Alternatively, one can also give it a positive spin — that one has finally made a breakthrough, rising from circumstances to triumph. Angki studied in the Modern School of Design, Yogyakarta, in 1993-1994, and furthered his studies at the Indonesian Institute of Art, Yogyakarta, in 1994-1999. He received the Asian Artist Fellowship from the National Museum of Contemporary Art, South Korea, at the Changdong Art Studio in 2005-2006. He had solos in Kuala Lumpur (Kissing The Methods, Richard Koh Fine Art, 2009), Singapore, Hong Kong and Bali, Indonesia. He was included in the ‘Space And Shadows’ Contemporary Art From Southeast Asia exhibition at the Haus World Cultural House in Berlin in 2005. He had been jailed before for a minor offence, and collaborated with some 20 inmates to create a series of works.
