TOWARDS the end of 2020, a Balinese artist I Ketut Putrayasa presented his magnificent art installation at the zero kilometer point of Denpasar City. The exhibition itself is located to the north of the Puputan Badung monument, Denpasar.
This installation art exhibition is the initial part of a series of projects of the Kuta Sunrise Project Art 2021 which is scheduled to take place on August 15, 2021 at Discovery Shopping Mall, Kuta. Before reaching its peak, this exhibition will be held in turns to reach all the districts throughout Bali.
Entitled Pandora Paradise, this art installation is made of five transparent acrylic boxes and a number of colorful synthetic bamboo which are arranged in such a way as to form a unique combination of artistic dimension that contains deep symbolical meanings.
The installation art Bali entitled Pandora Paradise signifies an imagination of irony that grows and develops on an island of dreams: splendor is strange because there is anxiety lurking behind it. To rearrange it is not easy but past memories will help heal it.
Quoted from the macmillandictionaryblog.com, the term Pandora Box is defined as something that can cause a lot of trouble if one does it, uses it or says it.
