The Bali Villas- Perched on the spectacular southwest coast of Bali, this award winning villa by Bedmar & Shi is Ernesto Bedmar’s long awaited first project on the island that has so inspired his successful career. The exquisitely designed villa was given the name The Jiva Puri, where “Jiva” in Hindu religious texts denotes the immortal essence of a living organism or being and “Puri” in Sanskrit refers to a palace or large dwelling. Although highly contemporary in expression, the design is intrinsically linked to the built history of the island and shows a deep understanding of traditional Balinese architectural concepts and their relationship to the landscape.
Contemporanea- Giovanni Presutti explores these issues in Contemporanea, emphasizing the aesthetic qualities his subjects have in common: the lines, materials, and reflections, as seen from different perspectives. In the process, he has sought out pureness of form, and created a unique context; one that is representative of our time. A foreword by Antonio Belvedere, and an introduction by the Parisian-born curator, critic, and photography historian Gabriel Bauret, provide a critical perspective on this collection of images.
