Disregard at Your Own Risk

Adi Bachmann Exhibits Paintings, Sculptures and Objet Trouvé Adi’s Gallery in Ubud, Bali Through July 29, 2012


(2/10/2012)

Sometimes less than charitably referred to as “trash art” - Objet Trouvé or “ready art” derives its identity as art due to the importance placed upon otherwise mundane items of daily life by the artists. Controversial in its claim  to be considered as “art,” appreciation of “found art” is unarguably in the eye both of the “holder” as well as the “beholder.”


Putting the Mundane on a Pedestal

“Found Art” is nothing without the “owner” who sees deeper meaning in the otherwise prosaic, giving the “item” a title and a place designated for art – be that an exhibition, gallery or museum.

An ongoing exhibition at Adi’s Gallery in Ubud, Bali features paintings, sculptures and “Ojet trouvé” or found art.

Via his paintings, Adi Bachmann continues his experimentation with basic colors: blue, red and yellow, and black and white. These are used to express the experimental character of this work and are presented on plywood and plastic materials instead of canvas. Some of the resulting colored squares have been dubbed “Talking Man” depicting mirror pieces on a blue background, “Dancing Woman” portraying a metal web on a red background, and “Growing Child” with wooden ledges on a yellow background.

Models made from concrete exemplify Adi’s latest sculpture projects. 6 pieces named: “My friend Sisyphus,” “The Wheel of Life,” “Greed Traps,” “Totems without Taboos” and “What happened to the motor bike?”.

Dinner for One” is one of the central pieces of the current exhibition. On a small round table are formally arranged china, cutlery, glasses, cotton napkins and a candlestick. All the items, including a Greek tavern table, are covered with a layer of sand and glue. Thus the whole arrangement appears like carefully carved sandstone – a borrowing from the baroque idea that nothing is what it looks like.

The highlights of the exhibition are the items of “Ojet trouvé” – a wide assortment of items collected by Adi Bachmann over the years, many comprised of items pieces still commonly used in Balinese households.

Elevated to “art,” Bachmann displays these items on columns and stands. “A four pointed Trident” used for handling manure; “The Coconut is the Base of All” a scoop constructed from a coconut shell; “Sickle without Hammer” a sickle used to cut grass; “A Coconut Guillotine” used for grating coconut; and “The Axe at Home” – these are just some of the more than 25 Balinese based pieces that Bachmann shares.

The current exhibition also includes “Ojet trouvés” collected from the western hemisphere.
.
Adi, an iconoclast to the core, is not going in the direction of the “Great Masters”  happy merely following with his own thoughtful, witty and often ironic “little art beside the big attitudes”.
