Bali" shows 104 pieces of art, created in the years between 2006
and 2009. There are paintings, sculptures, assemblages, objects, reliefs
and ready mades, which reflect the overwhelming or upsetting, but most
of the times colorful, realities of the daily life in Bali.
Presenting the exhibition "Adi's Bali" in October 2007, the
new art space "Adi's Gallery" became opened to the public.
Dr. Robert Randall from "ArtWords" wrote about the exhibition:
Throughout his artworks, whether they are paintings, expanded canvases,
Adi exhibits an amazing ability to appropriate existing images, or select
unusual items, and make something entirely new, and often humorous,
out of them ...
You will be surprised to find what a sharp eye Adi has for identifying
Balinese Pop Icons. Works such as ‘Hati-Hati’, ‘Gecko
Arrangement’ and ‘Spicy?’ comment on, in turn, Banjar
street signs, sarongs patterned with Balinese lizards, and fiery local
condiments. Even the present fad of Balinese youth to dress in military
camouflage is commented on in the constructed piece ‘Militaristic
Dressing’. Perhaps it takes a fresh and unbiased new eye to recognize
and reaffirm these local icons for us.
There is a lot to take in with Adi Bachmann’s exhibition ... There
is a lot of wit to be found in his work. Put bluntly, Adi’s exhibition
is a hell of a lot of fun.
