Nine Balinese artists organized an exhibition entitled Artainment in Guet Art Space, Sanur. These artists presented their best works of art in the context of capturing the contemporary symptoms of the art creativity. The exhibition opened on Tuesday (Nov 5) would last for a month. The artists participating in the Artainment exhibition are Made Budhiana, Wayan Redika, I Made Wiradana, Mahendra Mangku, I Ketut Tenang, I Made Oka, Made Romi Sukadana, V. Dedy Reru and I Wayan Wirawan.
Redika said the artists participating in the Artainment exhibition actually originated in a light discourse and discussion from one artist to another. “Movement in the creation of the art has led to visual pleasure. In other words, the works of the art are seen to be in a comfortable and light position as well as aesthetically beautiful,” said Redika. The idea inspiring the Artainment, he explained, was a construction of awareness in glorifying the ‘flavor’ in making the process. The sense later on became part of the soul that submerged in each work. Each work was not the representation of ‘sense’ beyond the soul of the artists.
As a result, the proceeds would be dedicated as a personal entertainment for the artist. “Artainment is meant as a term that comes from the crystallization of the mind of the artists who exhibited in scrutinizing the tendency of contemporary arts, which has been partially exploited in any space and time as a medium of entertainment,” he said. Meanwhile, the owner of the Guet Art Space, Kadek Dwi Armika hoped that the communality atmosphere all this time reflected in the nine participating artists would become the guidelines that influenced the attitude of freedom in the work. “We hope this exhibition could be a reflection of entertainment that could touch the sensual realm. Though being small, this exhibition can provide a value that is not small,” said the young architect.
This exhibition was organized as part of the Bali Act 2013 program, aiming to create an integrated publishing system, for a period of time simultaneously. Thus, it could become a referral and information center for the public who wished to obtain information about the visual arts in Bali. (BTN/015)
