From The Editor

Salam budaya, Allow us to introduce Art Gallery magazine, an art info ‘zine’ containing information about art gallery activities, especially in Bali, in which we include news and views about various forthcoming exhibitions, and review those taking or having recently taken place. For this debut edition we are featuring two major events in the local art world, namely the happening art Apa Ini Apa Itu – undoubtedly a phenomenal event at the end of 2009, and an exhibition featuring the work of Jeihan, an artist who has consistently maintained a distinct style throughout his lengthy career. Forthcoming exhibitions featured include Optimism 2010 at MahaArt Space, which shows the work of no less than 27 artists. In addition, there are profiles of Made Budhiana, Made Wianta, and an essay about the late great Gus Dur. It isn’t easy to cover everything happening in the art world, but we hope that with the help and contributions of readers and galleries, future editions will be all the more comprehensive in their coverage. We are therefore very happy to receive any information about gallery events. MADE WIANTA Please do not hesitate to contact us. Unlimited Space, We also welcome any writing that 2002 ink on paper accords with our mission, is written in an easy-to-read style, is comprehensive and informative, and of course covers the activities of artists and galleries. More than this, we hope that the information we provide will serve as a source of information and entertainment that can support the enjoyment of and appreciation of art for all. Happy reading!

Art Review


he happening art Apa Ini, Apa Itu (“What’s this? What’s that?”) at Lepang Beach, Klungkung Bali, 29-31 December 2009 underlined an ongoing tendency today in which we see art returning to its roots, to the earth and to nature. More than this, spiritualism is also addressed in almost all of the works of these 27 artists hailing from 6 countries. The event is staged by Djagad Art House, and features artists including Wayan Sujana Suklu, Daniel Kho, Wayan Sujana Suklu, Wayan Sudiarta, Daniel Zacharias, and Daniel LeClaire (USA), who are showing and sharing their ideas and their creative art concepts. This contemporary art festival features installation art, performance art, contemporary music, and performing art

requiring audience participation. The audience are invited to take part in installations from Wayan Sujana Suklu, Nyoman Erawan, Wayan Sudiarta, Daniel Kho, Daniel Zacharias, Danuta Franzen (Polandia), Nyoman Sujana Kenyem, Eko Prawoto, Joko Dwi Avianto, Made Djirna. Coincidentally the material the artists are using is naturally occuring, even in the content of the video art created by Charlie Crooijmans (Holland). Contemporary dancers like Jasmine Okubo (Japan), Diah Kristin, Nyoman Sura, and the husband and wife team Agung Gunawan and Deasylina da Ary, along with Surya Darma, added novelty for the audience, most of whom were locals more used to viewing traditional art. One of

the most interesting performances came from the artists Cedil (Ketut Suanda), Wayan Pacet, and Mahardika, who performed contemporary art music. Also worthy of mention was the installation by Wawan S Husin and Welldo Wnophringgo that ran within the exhibition space for more than 53.5 hours. The climax of the event saw Tisna Sanjaya collaborating with Nyoman Erawan. The performance art ‘Ritus Abu’ by Tisna Sanjaya was based on a similar performance at Sanur Village Festival in August 2009, later re-worked by Tisna in order to incorporate performance media created by Erawan: Space Cremation. At the beginning of the event, Shooshie Sulaiman (Malaysia) symbolized the start of proceedings by ritually planting an

offering in the ground. Ritus Abu is a ritual symbol in the art of Tisna Sanjaya as he reads the current state of culture, society, art, and politics in Indonesia. Tisna Sanjaya features Islamic religious symbols in Ritus Abu. The five paintings buried in Sanur symbolized the way muslims live. This latest collaboration with Nyoman Erawan featuring cremation rites is a kind of harmonization of art with the spiritual, as both activities ultimately have the same end, to acknowledge the great creator. A central question in ‘What’s this? What’s that?’ would seem to imply the answer: art is not always commercial, because there is also a need for art to act as a ritual and interaction with the people and their surroundings.[Ema S.] 5

Introduction by Exhibition 18 February-18 March 2010

Optimism 2010

Issues surrounding contemporary art are celebrated by many artists who were either born or now live in Bali, via the various elements of realism that we come across in our daily lives: the environment, humanity, politics, and the various industrial products that define urban culture. And these artists achieve their ends through an equally wide variety of visual strategies.


ealism has changed, not only because of the development of supporting media (electricity for lighting, cameras, computers), but also because of changes in ideology, the relationship between the country post cold war and globalisation. In the study of international relationships, these phenomena have been termed neorealism, especially in the work of Kenneth Waltz who described the international systems that determine the behaviour of a country. The individual signification of context no longer takes place solely in relation to ideology, but also because of the relationships between professions supported by media. Realism and contemporary Balinese art are a case in point, because globalisation is far more apparent in Bali if compared to other parts of Indonesia. Bali can no longer view itself as Bali, or even as Indonesia. It must now regard itself at the same time as a global entity throbbing like an organ of a larger system. The concept of the outsider, either foreigners or domestic migrants, carries within it the norms of globalization, and is a reality in Bali today, where its liberalizing effects have been clearly felt. Bali is bracing itself for a new political identity according to which truth is no longer to be found in a solo face and voice, rather in the causes and effects of joint goodness. It has become an oasis for an aesthetic people who see beauty as a language comprising various processes. Does art realism – for the Balinese artist operating in the above context – represent a suitably pertinent question in the reading of this exhibition, Optimisme 2010, staged by MahaArt Space, Sanur, Bali, and which features 25 artists aged between 35 and 40?


Visual Unity The visual geography and even anthropology of Bali displays a uniqueness that separates it from other parts of Indonesia. The environment, village-city, mountain-sea, opposites that co-exist in a unified way. In the city we find rice fields and rural life. And the mountains and the sea are similarly ‘one’. The coast and the hills are not culturally divided as they are in Java. This unity is even to be found in the combination of the traditional and the modern, of ritual and the daily economy. As a consequence of this unity we find an analogy in traditional Balinese art, often referred to as ‘non-perspective’: there is no central object or focus. All is unified in a visual community reminiscent of a mantra, repetitive and compact, deeply provocative, vibrating and intense. Narration (of fables, for example) does not elicit correspondence, rather it elicits rhythm and density. Unity is in the name of devotion, prayer, and togetherness. Creatures (human, animal, even mythological) exist at a level no greater than the world that surrounds them. Technical aspects, whether lines or incisions, move like rain or the chirping of insects. The results of manual labour are devoted to a visual unity that transfers detail to the level of movement and sound. In the context of contemporary Balinese art, this unity brings with it provocation in the sharp arrangement of space within a composition, or maximizing detail in order to achieve vibrance. Hyper-reality is also achieved through the enlargement of objects that replace the atomization featured in traditional Balinese art. And various other visual strategies make use of digital media. How best, then, to interpret contemporary Balinese art in the context of Bali itself? This question is placed somewhat ambiguously in the work of Wayan Redika, a female Balinese dancer amidst

various paint brushes covered in old paint. The space is divided into two colours, clear blue and dark brown. The brushes are arranged in such a way as to alter the interpretation of the work variously: thousands of arrows transforming the traditional face, a gateway to tradition, or no sign at all. Indeed, there is the impression that this unity is being shaken: devotion is being replaced by television, prayer is being replaced by protest. The canvas is now seen more as a place to execute a visual strategy based on new ideas, and and no longer as a place of worship. The work of Wayan Apel Hendrawan and Wayan Anyon Muliastra, both represent forms of social protest or statement. In the context of Hindu Bali, the paintings of cows by Nyoman Wijaya, also convey irony in the contrast between that which is regarded as sacred and the reality of our consumer culture. The cows are made using deep incisions and warm colours. It is painting as reading: Who are we as consumers? Balinesque painting, as in the aforementioned work of Redika or Wijaya, is epitomized in the work of Made Kaek, which preserves manual technique in the use of pencil and Chinese ink brush, but never showing off in its perfection. He is able to control his use of technique, aware of the need to control expression up to a certain limit. The resulting effect is a layering of just the right kinds of emotion, namely the spirit world and the beasts of the netherworld, both integral to Hindu-Bali narrative, but also the narrative of Kaek himself. Kaek also strives not to be provoked by colour, preferring instead to allow black and white to dominate. For a visual strategy that features composition as a way to read, we turn to the work of Gede Arta. This work uses natural backgrounds and farming figures, placed not in a relationship of production, rather one in which the very near and the very far are juxtaposed, and with variations of colour presented either in transparent blocks or caked on thickly or cubistically. This, analytical style of composition can also be seen in the work of I Nyoman Ari Winata. Deformed figures arouse emotion, or a kind of dehumanized narrative. Figures with gestures convey the feelings of bodies worked hard, bodies that suffer and are abused, and feelings of loss. Meanwhile, figures without background remove the distinction between standing, hanging, and floating.

painting through Bonet and Walter Spies, for example, is an important aspect of this political identity, although let us not forget the role of Tjokorda Sukawati during the 1930s. When we look at the phenomenon of the return of the social space in Bali as a united space, then in comparing traditional and contemporary art in Bali we see that there is no relationship between the two. Their connectedness lies simply in the fact that they both occur at the same time and in parallel. There is nothing ‘over there’ and ‘over here’, everything is here. There is no traditional and no modern, all is contemporary, here and now. There is no age gone by and no up-to-date. Everything is mixed together and intertwined, both the old and the new. This posturing of Bali has been described analogously by Putu Wirata Dwikora, who notes that however modern the Balinese in the villages might appear to be (surfing the Internet, using handphones, driving cars, and in professional employment), they never let go of tradition, and continue to communicate with the dead, and so on. (2009). The Hindu-Bali tradition shows the cosmology of birth, death and reincarnation; the relationship between the living and the dead; between the material and the non-material (Mahabutha); between the sacred and the profane (ceremony

The Mystical-Pragmatic Dimension Globalisation indeed implies a paradigmatic shift in the reading of contemporary Balinese art. This political identity alters the complexity of discourse both at the internal as well as the external level. The way we read modern Balinese


+ cockfighting + gambling): all takes place in harmony. It is a cosmology that implies a cycle of life, forming a perfect circle, bringing all things together and placing them at their respective points within the cycle. The narration of this cosmological space can be seen in the work of Made Duatmika, for example: Dance and Ceremony, Disco and Gamelan. And another example is in the graffiti Power Cut. People at prayer, usually sterotypically female icons like those seen in stained glass, angelic females, peace and love, all are found in the work of I Ketut Tenang. A wide background of blue blurs into the face of an old man in the painting (Cundrawan). Religious and traditional Hindu-Bali indeed relies heavily on visual language – that can be seen and therefore communicated. This language does not rely on a view of space as having perspective, because perspective implies some kind of structure, and the ratios resulting from structure result in a dialectic of space having a here and a there. Meanwhile these have been replaced in the Balinese people by more mystical and pragmatic relationships. This, then is the essence of the unified space that we find in the context of Bali. Belief (as a mechanism of ritual) and function (fulfilling daily needs) has replaced the dialectics of structure. See how space is arranged in the work of Ketut Teja Astawa, for example. His paintings seem to be showing an above, a below, and a centre. All areas are essentially mythological, but they operate together, in harmony, according to their respective functions, so that the eye follows the sky as would a bird. Traditional and contemporary Balinese art can only really be distinguished according to their respective archeologies: one is a narrative offering contextualised by Hindu-Bali cosmology, while the other is oriented towards global art. One is traditional representation, the other is individual presentation and is responsible for its own form of expression and for the ideas contained within it. These differences in archaeology, between the traditional and the contemporary, do not automatically correspond to parallels in the community of artists in Bali. The attitudes of Balinese artists from these two camps are in fact very similar in terms of their daily activities: production, creativity and ritual combined. Contemporary art does not automatically imply a personification of values that significantly alter the artist’s view of tradition. It is more a means to achieve diversity, which is an inevitable aspect of the global village. Realism resides in Balinese art and therefore it is impossible to read it according to cosmology alone. A radical 10

discourse is no longer necessary when ritual is an integral mechanism used by the Balinese to move between domestic and public spaces. Optimism (a theme of this exhibition), which is represented according to Balinese cosmology as residing above (through the concept of reincarnation and the hierarchy of spirits) is a given. Optimism despite the various environmental problems (global warming) can be interpreted as hope, a search for space and alternative movements, maintaining the dream of a united world in which we all live at peace with each other. Optimism is most apparent when set against the background of issues like global warming, which is currently receiving attention around the world alongside other issues such as human rights. Life force is set against ecological capacity, which is rapidly diminishing due to human activity. However, some artists, such as I Made Budiadnyana and IB Puja, avoid dramatic responses to situations like this. Both derive a visual language from pure forms, transparent layers and textures. In the work of I Made Dolar Astawa objects are uniquely combined: amidst a cluster of metallic colored chillis we find a red-as-a-chilli tomato. This strategy of shifting colours is how Astawa makes a statement about pressing issues. In yet other works, such as those by V. Dedy Reru, we find icons from Pop culture. Wayan Pastika explores the sensuality of the female queen, achieving sensation in the juxtaposition of fiction and sensuality. Sensations, such as those created by superheroes like Superman, help to politicize - hyper-realistically - the will of the super-ego. Hyper-reality like this is a local means to explore the myth of the hero, be it religious or traditional. More recently it has also been associated with the politics of beauty, of superiority, and of gender. Kondang Sugito makes statues that reflect the sensation of personification. For example there is the piece that features a penis as focal point, and of course, the ‘face’ of the piece is busy observing birds that are flying around it. (burung = bird, a local slang word for penis). At the same time it is as though the penis is attending to all directions, in a state of loneliness. The works of these artists, along with those of many others taking part in the exhibition: Wayan Hendra Kusuma, Antonius Kho, Made Wiradana, Uuk Paramahita, Putu Sudiana Bonuz, Made Suta Kesuma, Putu Edy Asmara Putra, Wayan Sumantra, Kadek Wijana, and Made Romi Sukadana, all beg for a return to optimism as something basic to life, something that we own, and something that cannot be taken away from us by anybody.[Maha Art Space]

Art Profile

The Dynamic and Energetic Wianta


Nature & Life Made Budhiana Made Budhiana is still around. He still paints in a strong abstract style with a keen sense of line, space, composition and colour. A keen practitioner of yoga since his high school days, he doesn’t smoke, and he doesn’t drink. Tekun believes in clean living, in herbs and health drinks. He admires the beauty of stones such as agate and other precious stones, and collects things that are antique and unique. Budhiana was born in Denpasar, 27 March 1959. He graduated from ISI Yogyakarta. Since 1989 he has held five solo exhibitions at galleries including Sika Contemporary Art Gallery Ubud (2001), Ganesha Gallery, Jimbaran, Bali (1998), and The Northern Territory Museum of Art and Sciences, Darwin, Australia (1989). He has also exhibited at several joint exhibitions both at home and abroad. In addition, he has received several awards for his efforts in the field of painting. In April 2010 he is due to hold a solo exhibition at MahaArt Gallery, Sanur, Bali. He is an idealist and a romantic, at least if viewed from 38

his affinity with nature and all of its beauty. The smell of sea salt, sun striking barren land, the coolness of mountain nits, the humidity of tropical forests, all are one with his spirit. Wherever he goes he takes a camera and photographs interesting objects. Back in the studio he sores these on his beloved Mac. A walk beyond the village limits is not only a means to find inspiration for painting. It is also a way to change the way we look at the world and at ourselves. It is a simple study of nature and of life, without pretense. “Our view of the world really needs to change in order that our spirits might be enriched with variety.” Nature and life, for Budhiana, are sources of inspiration and beauty that are without end. There is beauty in simplicity and plainness. “At times nature appears calm and yet it is full of movement of which we are unaware. This is the uniqueness of nature that we should regard as essential.” [Wayan Sunarta]

ade Wianta ended 2009 sweetly, staging two solo exhibitions, both of which featured fresh new work that had not been shown previously. At the end of November 2009, Wianta showed around 100 works in a Spotlight exhibition organized by O House Gallery, at the Nasional Gallery in Jakarta. Then, on 20 December, the date of his 60th birthday, he held a second solo exhibition at Space on Space at Gaya Art Space Ubud. This second exhibition featured around 1,000 works that filled the art space for a period of one month. Why two exhibitions back to back? During his 40 years working as an artist, Made Wianta has always come across as tough, dynamic and energetic. He is always on the move and keen to address pressing issues in his various solo exhibitions. At the beginning of December last year he was interviewed in his studio he recalled his happening art Art and Peace, a colossal work staged on 9 December 1999. Here he was hoping for an end to violence and aggression in the world, but ten years on his wishes have not been met. The piece is therefore still relevant today. He continues to write poetry wherever he happens to be, and using whatever materials are close to hand – tissues, cigarette packets, tickets for shows, parking tickets, or newspaper. He has published three collections of poetry and is now putting together an anthology of his work in English. In other news, Wianta is negotiating with a school in the US, where he will be teaching for a term next year. Of course he will continue to work there and to exhibit there. Wianta uses various means to maintain his intensity and consistency. He sketches every day, prolifically. Indeed this is something he has done every morning for decades and is evidenced in his strength of line. He also reads widely on the subject of culture and philosophy. “An artist is obliged to read, either from books or from the events that take place around him,” said Wianta, who also walks and swims to keep fit. Books are another obsession for Wianta. He is never happier than when his work is written up and shown in published form. So far he has published 15 titles covering his work and his poetry, an oeuvre that has widened his influence in several countries and established him as a world player in art, taking him to places like the Biennale Venezia (2003) where he showed his work Dreamland, a response to the tragic Bali bombing in 2002. This year he will be showing work at the Beijing Biennale that tackles the issue of global warming and other environmental problems. We are constantly in anticipation of the next surprise to come from Wianta, including this solo exhibition at MahaArt Gallery. [Ema S.] 39

Art for You



f on this occasion the sky darkens, water drips from leaves, and the earth develops a damp odor, there will be untold grief, a grief that we all share, that we share every time love embraces difference, owned by anybody who loves peace. Yes, Gus Dur (KH Abdurrahman Wahid) is gone for ever. He has entered his final resting place. Gus Dur was an ‘infinite ocean’. He always gave a feeling of peace to those at the edges of society, the underprivileged and the oppressed. And because he was such an ocean without a bottom, his message of peace will be felt until the end of time. Gus, even though we may have had different religious beliefs, I always think of you as my kyai (guru). You were a particularly great kyai when it came to thinking. Because you were a true scholar, intimately involved and up-to-date with the people and their lives, by no means reserved to speaking your mind from the height of power. Actually you could sit on the throne of any palace. The entire contents of the universe will be saddened by your departure, Gus. This I read from the tear of a bird flitting across the water in Sanur. Its song is one of grief and is reflected in the hearts of all of us who love peace. I notice, as I walk along the beach path to the East of Sanur, that the bird is advancing towards Karangasem. Perhaps he wants to inform one of your close friends about your departure, Gus. There, in Karangasem, one of your best friends lies resting. Ibu Gedong Bagoes Oka ‘Coral from Karangasem’. Only she, Gus, standing as she did in the parliament house, remained loyal to you when all others in the building left you behind. Since that time, I have had the utmost respect for Gus, despite one or two differences of opinion here and there. Knowing who your friends were, I came to understand you better, Gus. Your departure reminds me of the beginnings of real democracy in this country. When you formed the Democracy Forum during the 1990s, in which ‘leadership’ led to ‘homogeneity’ amongst the intelligentsia, in contradiction to their actual principles. Here, Gus, you and your friends achieved the real reformation, at least in terms of democracy and the spirit of freedom. Through a friend, who was also your superior(?), edi-


tor of Matra, Kemala Atmodjo, I came into contact with the true meaning of democracy. I soon came to understand you and your friends, our country’s top scholars. I was very lucky, Gus, because during my evenings at Wisma Art Taman Ismail Marzuki (TIM) Jakarta, I was able to attend discussions by Fordem, because TIM is not far from Jl. Gondangdia, the place where Fordem staged their discussions. In the beginning, Gus, I was rather timid about joining in the discussions at Fordem, and I always chose a seat close to the door so that I could make a quick escape if the police came. The pressure of tens of years of oppression made me afraid - that was the reality, Gus. The same happened at the halalbihalal event held at Fordem, TIM in 1992. On that occasion, Kemala Atmodjo was chairing the event. Again I took my place close to the door when Kemala was interrogated by police who stormed the building. I was still afraid. I was nowhere near as bold as Putu Wirata, my friend. He was bold enough to form the Alliance of Independent Journalists (AJI) in Bali and at the height of oppression. However, after several such events I became more selfaware, Gus. Feelings of fear need not be harbored by all of the beasts of the earth. I also began to understand, Gus, that intellectuals do not represent a class of their own, but act individually in the struggle for freedom and truth, in a search for justice, freedom, and democracy. Gus, I was finally brave enough to sit in the front row and forgot about the door while I was listening to your discussions at LBH Jakarta in 1993. You were with Adnan Buyung and Franz-Magnis Suseno as speakers. And there it is, Gus, the many lessons that I have learned from you. Most importantly, Gus, I was able to overcome fear in the search for truth. This time the drizzle is possibly the tears of the universe lamenting our loss. We will always miss you, and all like you, who have been able to convey the good news that the belief that you embrace is the belief in a peace for all. Gus, for me you are the greatest guru. Finally, Gus, I would like to quote from Umbu Landu Paranggi, as as a tribute to you: “Goodbye Gus, see you in Ibrahim’s camp.” Essay by Hartanto
