    Biasa ArtSpace in Bali, Contemporary Art Gallery In Seminyak

    Biasa ArtSpace in Bali

    Biasa ArtSpace is a contemporary art gallery located only steps away from the Biasa fashion flagship store in Seminyak. Inconspicuous amongst the row of fashion boutiques along Jalan Raya Seminyak, it houses quirky pieces by select, up and upcoming Indonesian artists who master various forms, from paintings, figurines, to enigmatic sculpture and awe-inspiring works.

    The contemporary art gallery works closely with these artists and supports them by providing an international setting for wider appreciation through its high-profile exhibitions. Dedicated to the development and preservation of art, Biasa ArtSpace also features a dedicated art restoration and conservation studio on its upper level, set in collaboration with a renowned Italian art restorer.

    Since opening in 2005, Biasa ArtSpace has played an important role in fostering some of the most significant new developments in contemporary Indonesian art. Its launch was a natural response of Biasa’s fashion designer and founder, Susanna Perini, to her early encounters with young Yogyakarta artists in the late 1990s. Soon it continued to act as a stage for these undiscovered art communities and as an international platform for select local artists.

    As you enter the white tiled hallway, you’ll notice a peculiar installation that, at first glance, looks like an elaborate array of mechanical devices. Brass head busts, some that strikingly resemble the late president Soeharto, are placed over motorized mallets that hit gamelan pieces, creating an out-of-synch composition. Behind are more busts with eyes that erratically light up red. Yogyakarta visual artist Heri Dono created this surreal installation in 2009.

    The visitors are invited to relax and enjoy the space with a series of spaces to sit and relax, enjoy the art, have a coffee, link into the wi-fi and soak up the unique atmosphere of the store. Biasa ArtSpace offers a unique atmosphere that represents BIASA’s core philosophy, the opening marks a new journey for both the brand and Susanna, whose vision has always been to create a unique composition of art, idealism and lifestyle, all accessible under one roof.
