Ashley Bickerton: Heresy or Codswallop

Gajah Gallery proudly presents ‘Ashley Bickerton: Heresy or Codswallop’, featuring the internationally acclaimed American artist who has lived and worked in Bali for almost 30 years. Presenting one of the most comprehensive surveys of his work to date, ‘Heresy or Codswallop’ brings together the last decade of Bickerton’s ever-evolving practice, featuring works from 2011 to the present day.

After achieving early success in New York in the 1980s together with his peers Jeff Koons, Peter Halley and Meyer Vaisman – Bickerton left for Bali in 1993, in search of a deeper connection to his practice. Known for his scathing social commentaries, Bickerton’s work critiques the fantasy of the island utopia, exploring its reality as a de-cultured touristic locale that has been reconstructed to feed the westernized paradise ideal.

The exhibition catalog will feature a critical essay by art writer Gregory Galligan, providing an extensive look at Bickerton’s practice from the 90s to today.
