The BIASA Art Space at Jalan Raya Seminyak No. 34 in Seminyak-Kuta is presenting the works of more than 30 Indonesian artists at "Fetish Object Art Project" from July 25 until August 31, 2007.

The exhibition presents objects, installations, photographs, video art and various other media that reveal the underlying mental dimensions of human beings that, in the words of the curator, "we tend to conceal behind the arrogance of reason and logic."

Fetish Objects Art Project #1 presents the works of Agus Suwage, Alexis, Aloysius Nindityo Adipurnomo, Angki Purbandono, Anusapati, Ari Diyanto, Arya Panjalu, Bambang Toko, Bayu Yuliansyah, Bob Sick Yudhita, Budi Kustarto, Bunga Jeruk P., Cahyo Basuki Yopie, David Armi Putra, Eko Nugroho, Entang Wiharso, Hamad Khalaf, Handiwirman, Hardiman Radjab, Jumaldi Alfi, Kokok P. Sancoko, Mella Jaarsma, Nadhiah Bamadaj, Pandu M., Pintor Sirait, Stefan Buana, S. Astari, S. Teddy D., Tita Rubi, Ugo Untoro, Wiyoga Muhardanto, Yuli Prayitno, Yusra Martunus, and other artists.

Fetish Object Art Project recognizes the reality of the objects and physical phenomena that surround us and with which we have more than a mere functional relationship. A merely utilitarian outlook towards these items proves inadequate when viewed from the perspective of fetishism. Fetish reveals nightmares, obsessions, paranoia, fervor, passions, fantasies and hidden layers of our "consciousness". Fetish exposes the fragility of human existence amid objects which we have created, while depicting the wild nature of human imagination that give "meaning" to the items, their owners and the world that surrounds them.

Some works in the current exhibit can also be regarded as the artists' confessions of their personal tendency to make fetishes of a variety of items - from cigarettes, guitars, pencils, weapons, bags and bicycles to racing cars. Others merely offer the artists' critical views on a tendency to fetishism external to themselves: the operation of certain powerful ideas and values enhanced by commodities or triggered by a power structure in certain socio-political practices.

Bon Voyeur!
