This exhibition was titled BESTIE, involving artist I Gede Jaya Putra, I Nyoman Suarnata, I Made Putra Indrawan, I Putu Nova Ruspika Yanto and Ngakan Putu Agus Arta Wijaya (NPAAW).
BESTIE stands for friends, which was chosen because humans are social creatures and have many problems. And humans will always have friends or what we used to call besties, someone to discuss and share complaints with. A two-way relationship between two things creates mutually influential conditions. Sometimes the relationship that happens has a different impact depending on how we live and maintain the relationship. Similar to the concept of Balinese cosmology, Tri Hita Karana, where the relationship of a human being is interwoven with others. The concept of Tri Hita Karana is the concept of the relation between humans and their creators, humans with other humans, and humans with nature. Together, these three elements make for a greater sense of belonging.
