Love Affair, a project series by Syagini Ratna Wulan (a.k.a. Cagi) will commence in her first solo exhibition at Vivi Yip Art Room, 9 January 2010. Accomplished in an instalation set comprising paintings, drawings, furniture, clothing, tableware, embroideries and small domestic objects arranged in enigmatic, sensual, ambient narrative. The Dining Room / White Lies is the first part of project, inaugurating Syagini's relentless artistic desire to explore the secrecy of double love-life, unfaithfulness, seduction and expurgation of fantasies.

Graduated from the Printmaking Department of Bandung Institute of Technology, and the Cultural Studies of Goldsmith College, University of London, England, Syagini Ratnawulan has been known as visual artist, fashion and interior designer who embarked in a fertile creative art scene in Bandung in the late 90's. Known for her phantasmagorical narrative approach in working with visual materials, she puts forward her Love Affair project as her comback action to the contemporary art scene, after a momentary period of vacuum.
