Indonesia and Canada play a special role in ‘No place like home’. The artist uses wooden components from old buildings in both countries to allude to his own home. Plastic, wood, metal and other everyday materials go into the creation of an installation centred on everyone’s search for their own home. Bayuaji gives his work a feeling of memory and memorial as his imagination transforms these objects into abstract installations. The associative links with the history of the material used in relation to people is a constant in his work.
“I hope that the elements of the art installation will remind people of their home, other people’s homes that they visited, or let them imagine a home they dream of having in the future as a new adventure” – Ari Bayuaji
Kunsthal Light Light creates opportunities for talented artists, putting the spotlight on modern muralists, urban and comic artists, conceptual art and installations. The artists are given the freedom to create a site-specific work in the display window along the building’s front slope.
