Sculptures in the Garden – A Solo Exhibition by Adi Bachman at ARMA, Ubud Bali through December 31, 2010.


(8/23/2010)

Born in 1943 in Munich, Adi Bachman worked in Europe for nearly 4 decades as a book cover designer, typographer and graphic designer for publishing houses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Now, resident in Bali with his Balinese wife, Bachman works as a sculptor, author and gallery proprietor where he is continuously involved in all kinds of artistic, social and humanitarian projects.

In 2007 he moved to Ubud, Bali and opened Adi's Gallery. Very much at ease in his adopted home of Bali, Bachman says: "I deeply believe I'll stay here and my Balinese family will cremate me one day here in Bali, I found my place."

In cooperation with Agung Rai the owner of Ubud's ARMA Museum, Adi Bachmann has placed 63 colorful sculptures in the Museum's gardens. Quirky, eccentric and full of whimsy, the cement-based sculptures are generally presented in very bold and bright colors.

In preparing his sizable exhibition, Bachman worked with a team of professional cement workers for nearly two years.

Strategically placed in locations that complement their design, the sculptures populate ponds and fountains, peek from bushes, occupy bales or shelter in the shade of well-established trees. There are dancing snakes; a globe resting on a pyramid; a reclining Buddha who is surrounded by life-sized king penguins and a Balinese Police Officer. There is a sculpture of people engaged in a global warming conference; gatherings of women contemplating a swim; a rice field parade and even a zoo – all forming a part of the menagerie of eclectic characters created from the fertile imagination of Adi Bachman.

The exhibition in the gardens of the ARMA Museum on Jalan Pengosekan in Ubud, Bali is open daily through December 21, 2010.
