Deru Anding: Generations
20 November – 20 December
For ONCA’s Lost Species Day 2019 exhibition, indigenous artist Deru Anding will be showcasing an inspiring series of grand panoramic drawings in which he encapsulates and preserves his natural environment and community for present and future generations.
Born and raised amongst the Bidayuh Tribe near the jungle in northwest Borneo, Deru Anding moved to London in 1998 where he has since lived and worked as an Artist and Architect. Over the past two decades, 75% of Deru’s homeland has been destroyed for palm oil plantations, logging, and other developments. Anding’s drawings conjure scenes of a lifestyle and community lost; his works stretch over a meter in length and are drawn entirely from memory.
Curated by ONCA’s Susuana Amoah, this exhibition of Anding’s works raise awareness of protests against ongoing tropical deforestation and aims to encourage wider solidarity with indigenous communities.
