SERUNI BODJAWATI


Intens, dramatis, berani. Karya-karya Seruni Bodjawati telah terpampang di berbagai ajang pameran bersama di belasan negara dan diganjar tak hanya satu-dua penghargaan. Seniman belia kelahiran 1 September 1991 ini memang punya etos kerja tinggi; ia produktif bahkan sejak kanak-kanak.

Tema-tema karya Seruni menggambarkan pergulatannya sebagai perempuan muda yang bersentuhan dengan pengaruh seni dan budaya leluhur sekaligus dunia. Selain memanfaatkan simbol-simbol budaya Jawa dan Tionghoa, ia juga bermain-main dengan sosok seniman-seniman masyhur seperti Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo, dan Yayoi Kusama.Seruni kini tengah menyelesaikan S2 nya di jurusan Penciptaan Seni Lukis Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta.

“Lebih baik menjadi kepala cacing daripada buntut naga,” jawabnya saat ditanya tentang jalan yang ditempuhnya. Di tengah melimpahnya pengaruh seniman yang telah menorehkan nama dalam sejarah, Seruni mengerti ia harus menemukan dirinya sendiri.

Begitu muda, begitu jauh sudah perjalanannya. Dan yang membentang di hadapan pun masih tak terkira.
