Dito Yuwono (INDONESIA) is a visual artist from Yogyakarta. He graduated from Mass Communication Study in the Faculty of Social Science and Politics. He is member of Mes56 Artist Collective, and Co-Founder of Lir Space. Lir Space an independent space that aims to build a supportive and positive environment for young artists in Yogyakarta; focusing on a platform of a laboratory as alternative education for young artists, creating research-based artistic projects, and using independently-published book as an alternative space for exhibition. In the past five years, Dito did numerous residencies as part of his artistic practice. Among those are research and residency programs in 98B COLLABoratory – Philippine, The Northern Center for Contemporary Art – Australia, Ruang Rupa – Jakarta, and Village Video Festival – Jatiwangi Art Factory, Indonesia.

Dito’s artistic practice is varied between photography, mix-media installation, video, and performance. Dito is especially interested in working with community and recollecting memories to find the link between memory-citizen-history. His work often serves as a form of storytelling using personal approach to subtly grasp the bigger picture of socio-political environment. These issues are often brought up in every residency and projects that he does in Indonesia and abroad. The artist is now living and working in Yogyakarta. Some of his solo projects are “Have We Met?” (Lir Space – Yogyakarta, 2011), “Finding Stillness” (Artsphere – Jakarta, 2012), “The Memories of Unidentified Experience” (KKF – Yogyakarta, 2014),  “Recollecting Memories: Tukang Foto Keliling” (Kaliurang – Yogyakarta, 2013 and Ruang Rupa – Jakarta, 2015), and “Geography of Here and There” (NCCA – Darwin Australia, 2016).
