Agnes Hansella is a self-taught textile artist, focusing on macramé technique.
She was born in Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan to a Dayak father and an Indonesian Chinese mother. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the Jakarta Institute of Arts for Film and TV majoring in audio production.
In 2017 she realized its time to move to a different art form, and sync herself naturally with ropes and knotting. She loves the techniques because its simple and doesn’t require any tools.
Her work spans from small wall hanging to a building size knotting. Her most noticeable work until now is a three macramé art installation series: Mountain, Ocean, and Sunset. The work reflects the natural surroundings of the seaside structure in Jimbaran, Bali, Indonesia. Each knotted piece spans more than 37 feet wide, which are made by knotting a 16mm manila rope.
Agnes is currently focusing her work on 3D macramé.
