Tita Salina (b. 1973 in Palembang, Indonesia) and Irwan Ahmett (b. 1975 in West Java, Indonesia) are an artist duo based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Their work often takes the form of performative interventions in the chaotic public space of megapolitan Jakarta, which is facing uncontrolled urbanisation and pollution. The development of networks in art and activist circles has encouraged their artistic practice to progress toward the more profound and deeper circumstances. Selected group exhibitions include Singapore Biennale, Singapore (2013); Restitution of 1755: Hacking Giyanti, Biennale Jogja, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (2015); Salting the Sea, Asian Art Biennale, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan (2015); Jakarta Stories, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Denmark (2016); The Flame of the Pacific, St Paul St Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand (2016); Breathing of Maps, Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media, Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre and MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai (2018–20); Constellation of Violence, TPAM – Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama (2019); The Ring of Fire, NTUCCA, Singapore (2019); Bangkok Art Biennale, Bangkok, Thailand (2020); The 10th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia (2021).
