Asia Dreams - - WHAT'S HAPPENING -

Af­ter its first suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion in Jakarta, Potato Head Fam­ily – the In­done­sian-based life­style com­pany from the Potato Head brand, Kaum and the Kata­mama ho­tel – are work­ing to­gether again with one of In­done­sia's most note­wor­thy con­tem­po­rary artists, Eko Nu­groho, in Bali. The col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort takes the shape of a mas­sive in­stal­la­tion, po­et­i­cally ti­tled Bou­quet of Love. The 10x7m in­stal­la­tion is built by Eko and his team from 300kg of col­lected refuse, in­clud­ing plas­tic buck­ets, wa­ter and soda bot­tles, and elec­tron­ics, col­lected from lo­cal waste col­lec­tors and junk­yards.

Bou­quet of Love will be show­cased to the pub­lic on 10th Au­gust 2017 on Potato Head Beach Club's up­per level, and it will be on dis­play for a lim­ited pe­riod of time, dur­ing which the beach club's vis­i­tors can en­joy the art too. Eko ex­plains that the project – which took five weeks to assem­ble – aims to con­nect art and en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues to be pre­sented to the pub­lic.

The in­stal­la­tion is part of Potato Head Fam­ily's phi­los­o­phy of “good times and do good”. The beach club, which is famed for its iconic ar­chi­tec­ture and idyl­lic trop­i­cal set­ting, reg­u­larly works to­gether with great tal­ents from dif­fer­ent cre­ative fields, such as art, mu­sic, fash­ion, de­sign and more from all over the world. Its col­lab­o­ra­tion with Eko Nu­groho is an­other event that shouldn't be missed, es­pe­cially for those who have a pen­chant for art and so­cial aware­ness.
