With the pandemic confining people to their homes, virtual exhibitions may offer consolation to the weary minds and souls.
The latest exhibition at Museum MACAN in Jakarta, “Tales of Nowhere”, by Balinese contemporary artist Citra Sasmita blends imagination and technology to deliver just that.
Her 8-meter long scroll painting, based on Bali’s classical fables, brings to life mythical animals for children and adults to play in and explore the magical realms it presents.
Citra incorporates a traditional Balinese painting style known as kamasan to retell traditional folklore and adapt it for the contemporary social context.
The artist imagines a kingdom of mythical animals in her painting, which have been digitized to be exhibited online.
