Candra Sangkala: Reinterpretation of Ancient Reliefs’ Visual Codes in Contemporary Painting by Dr. I Wayan ‘Kun’ Adnyana, is a solo exhibition running from 26 October to 26 November 2017 at Neka Art Museum, Ubud, Bali.
Dr. I Wayan ‘Kun’ Adnyana, who is an art lecturer at the Faculty of Art and Design of the Indonesia Institute of Arts (ISI) Denpasar, has long contributed in the field of art. He has written many articles on art and cultural topics, and he has been the editor of Mudra, ISI Denpasar’s journal of national arts and culture since 2016. He is also a painter.
“Candra sangkala” refers to the visual code, symbols, and forms denoting numbers in a certain year, and can also be interpreted in the scope of history and social political context. In this exhibition, ‘Kun’ shows that the visual code in ancient Indonesian art actually reflects a message about social facts, belief, and political views over a period of time.
This exceptionally interesting exhibition is open daily from 9am to 5pm at Neka Art Museum.
Don’t miss it!
