Bouquet of Love

Temporary Installation
Potato Head Beach Club
Bali, Indonesia

To raise awareness against waste management and conservation, as well urgent environmental issues, Eko Nugroho composed 300 kilograms of collected refuse into a 10 x 7 m work called Bouquet of Love. The artwork is attached to Potato Head Beach Club’s Colosseum façade. Thousands of antiques teak colourful windows are used as the façade itself. Eko collected those windows throughout Indonesia, as an example of recycling and transforming everyday materials. Along with waste collectors and junkyards, Nugroho and his team collected varieties of discarded items, such as plastic buckets, water and soda bottles, tires and other electronic materials to collectively build a “bouquet of love.”
