Tisa Granicia

Tisa Granicia graduated from the Faculty of Fine Art and Design ITB majoring in ceramics art in 2005. Then, she continued her study taking a master’s degree programme in 2007. Not only she creates personal artworks, she also has her own ceramic pottery studio Kandura that she established with some of her friends. Tisa is interested in issues about identity used as the main idea of her artworks. It is primarily related to her personal experiences and stories that form her identity as a woman. To Tisa, her attitude towards this issue is between celebrating and criticizing it, between accepting and refusing it. She makes this matter as a starting point to attract many other ideas usually inspired by something that bothers her. Sometimes her artworks talk about how she deals with her surroundings that creates a concept about the identity. In other cases, her artworks are just a reflection on her own life that sometimes portrays herself.

Tisa shows her unique characters in the development of ceramics art usually categorized as an art genre ceramic sculpture. She uses unique idioms in the ceramics art tradition. For example, the form of a chest sculpture, representing sculpture of a human’s upper body showing the head, the neck, the shoulders, and some part of the chest. She uses this visualization to present a portrait of herself in many different things that she thinks affect the construction of an identity.
