Irfan Hendrian is known for using paper as the prime medium in his works. He explores the three-dimensionality of paper despite its two-dimensional nature, and the sculptural capabilities despite its thinness. In our quotidian life, paper is mainly a planar surface which then turned into other functional objects - newspapers, letters, documents, books, boxes, and many different things, the artist even recalls his childhood when his parents gifted him a piece of yellow paper, believed to be a protection charm, yearly. Starting with paper as a foundation, it then offers a myriad of possibilities, knowledge, agreements, and even beliefs.

In his solo presentation, Incognito, Hendrian explores the context of paper as objects when different ideas are manifested on it, the works are taking shapes of heavy construction materials when in reality they are made out of thin and light material that is paper.
