WOMEN IN BALI
MAO Museo d’Arte OrientaleThrough September 10

WOMEN IN BALI

A photo project that’s part art and part photojournalism. Images take us on a journey to the heart of Bali and pay tribute to the energy of all the women who live there. Bruna Rotunno recounts the world of women and the creative power of nature, on an island where water is still venerated as the sacred origin of life. In Balinese mythology, Holy Water is the Mother of all creation and the symbol of purification, and it is from this perspective that the female aspect of the island is examined. Sacred rituals, creativity, art, music and dance are seen as part of the daily routines of women in Bali.

The installation retraces the themes explored throughout the artist’s career: light, naturalism, theatricality, violence. It ends with an imaginary journey to the places Caravaggio once lived in.
