Ari Bayuaji, Hide and Seek; Galerie Helder, The Hague

Galerie Helder has moved to showing solo presentations and the present exhibition of works by Ari Bayuaji (1975) is a very subtle one indeed.

Bayuaji links social criticism to lyricism which makes his works objects of reflection.

Bayuaji, who comes from Bali but now lives in Canada, reflects amongst others on censorship, the position of women, remembrance and the history of places one may call either home or an exotic destiny.

With Bayuaji Helder brings a valuable way of seeing to The Hague and very different from what is regularly on show.

Meanwhile Bayuaji also has a presentation in the Kunsthal in Rotterdam
