In 2011, together with artist Dito Yuwono, they co-founded an independent art space with an aim to build a supportive and positive environment for young artist- LIR Space; focusing on laboratory platform as alternative education and research-based art projects. In 2019, they decided to work in a nomadic form and fully turn into LIR curator-artist collective. LIR produce temporary exhibitions, platforms, exchange programs, curatorial projects, site-specific and artistic works in different venues, institutions, and off spaces. Since 2017 they have been working on a long-term biannual site-specific project "900mdpl" in Kaliurang, a resort village under an active volcano (Mt.Merapi) in Yogyakarta - Indonesia as an attempt to archive the space, memory, as well as the history of the place and the people.
