The fifth iteration of a series of exhibitions previously presented in Prague, Stockholm, Miami and New York, “Domesticity V” continues to investigate the relationship – or lack thereof – between contemporary art and domestic spaces. This presentation specifically reflects upon issues linking Indonesia to Italy, especially the importance given to the notion of family and bonds, whether they are genetic or not; furthermore the project is located in a house, or Joglo referring to the context of Rumah Topeng dan Wayang [the house of masks and puppets]. 

The exhibition in Bali was at Rumah Topeng and Wayang in Ubud and the second one was exhibited at Biasa Artspace in Kemang, Jakarta. Photographs below are from Biasa Artspace by Indonesian photographer, Chris Bunjamin.
