Flotsam and Jetsam
October 8 - November 2

The sculpture of Balinese artist, Ida Bagus Putu Gede Sutama, mirrors the reality of his home near Sanur Beach. For thousands of years the tides and currents of the Strait of Badung have washed ashore the flotsam and jetsam. As an artist Sutama seeks to transform the mundane into the mysterious with a sparkling smile and enigmatic wink and supplied the villagers with a livelihood tied to the sea and temples. The source of Sutama’s inspiration happens to be one of the most picturesque sights in Sanur, that of the colourful jukung – the triangular sailed outrigger dug-out canoes- that line the beach. Carved in the shape of mythological elephant fish, the same sea, reef and sand imagination that gave birth to these, is like humans, their lives are limited and with time they are lost and broken up and often end up as colourful driftwood on the beach.
