In 2003, world famous installation artist Made Wianta was invited to travel to Venice to present his work "What Goes Around Comes Around" depicting his reaction to the October 2002 terrorist bombing in Bali at the prestigious La Biennalle di Venezia. To assist him in preparing his exhibition Wianta invited along three fellow Balinese: I Gusti Raka Panji Tisna (Panji) an artist, writer, biologist and environmental scientist; I Made Darma Susila (Made Kaek); a lawyer by training and an artist by avocation; and I Wayan Sujana (Sukuli) a formally trained artist from the Indonesian Art Institute (ISI) whose work is gaining a growing audience worldwide.
The foursome's travel diary reflecting on being an Indonesian abroad in the post 9-11 world, pasta, holes of every description, Gina Lollobrigida, and the naked human form experiencing pain while climbing stairs were gathered together in a book entitled "4 + 1 = Venezia."
Published by the Wianta Foundation the book is available in limited quantities from the Wianta Foundation at telephone/facsimile ++62-(0)361-233613 or via the e-mail link below.
