BOUQUET OF LOVE BY THE BEACH
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. ptthead.com
