Fajar Astrianto’s work explores the tales of mystical beings and asks the question: why are they here? In these visualizations, Fajar attempts to dig deeper into the idea that so contrasts Western beliefs and provide an understanding as to why spirits, ghosts, wewe, jerangkong are said to exist side by side with human beings. Check out Fajar’s interpretations at the Deus Gallery, where there will also be free flow wine, beer and cider.
