4. I Gusti Ayu Kadek Murniasih: Shards Of My Dreams That Remain In My Consciousness
Step into the powerful display of art by Balinese artist I Gusti Ayu Kadek (Gak) Murniasih. Now that she has passed on, these 50 works show why she became famous. Her life was far-from-easy, with poverty, sexual abuse and divorce, but her art is courageous and energetic – showing female sexuality, vulnerability, strange creatures and vivid dreams. It’s a style of female empowerment that’s often lacking in the Southeast Asian art space. You can see the gallery for yourself at Gallah Gallery, or explore through the online exhibition here.
