PechaKucha Night – Celebrating people, passion, and creative thought

We are very happy to announce the first PechaKucha night Bali at The Bridge @ Green School. We love to get together as a community and celebrate so many amazing talents we have here at Green School and beyond.

The PechaKucha 20×20 presentation format is a slide show of 20 images, each auto-advancing after 20 seconds. It’s non-stop, and presenters got 400 seconds to tell their story, with visuals guiding the way.

In the first edition, we want to celebrate the talented women of our community.  We have an inspiring lineup and you can not miss the opportunity to celebrate them, engage with other community members, get some cocktails and just have fun together.

The Speakers:

Lisi Lluch – We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are

Through a series of 20 photographs, we will be exploring the idea of truth behind our perceptions. We don’t see the world around us as it is, but as we are, through our own particular lens, our emotions, mood, prejudices, beliefs, senses, heart, biases… that shape our own reality. The way we see things reflects who we are. What we see is our mirror and we should honor our truth.

Having been an Art director and Photographer for over 20 years, Lisi moved with her family to Bali, the Island of the Gods in search of a slower-paced life. Through the power of ceremony, ritual and spirituality lived by the Hinduist culture, she learned and applied the potential of sacredness to her daily life. She made space to listen, allowed healing, and nurtured growth by breaking old limiting beliefs in search of a more purposeful life.

Liina Klauss – Creation of Value

A drink is not a drink unless we drink it. A feeling is not a feeling unless we feel it. Waste is not waste unless we waste it. How do we create reality, and how is value created within that reality? With my art, I’m trying to make the reality we created visibly. We can alter this process when we consciously see what we created and how we created it.

Liina Klauss (born 1974) is a German land artist based in Bali and Hong Kong. Her works examine the intersection of culture and nature, finding a visual language for the pervasive impact of humans on the natural world. Using lost objects as art material, Liina creates everything from delicate mosaics to large-scale installations. Assumed cultural conventions get distorted as the viewer is seeing value within the worthless, innocence within ignorance, and beauty within the ugly.

Lydia Janssen – Painting and Inspiration

In my presentation, I will be showing examples of the marriage between painting and inspiration. In the pair of slides each containing a painting and an image of an aspect of the nucleus of the painting, I will attempt to explain the non linear trajectory artists often follow towards their goal.

Lydia Janssen was born in Michigan, USA, and received a BA from Sarah Lawrence College, New York (1998). After graduating, she moved to New York City to pursue a professional dance career, dancing at the Merce Cunningham Studio School, and performing with modern dance troupes Pam Tanowitz Dance Company and Jordana Toback/POON Dance Company. Lydia’s dance career ended after a knee injury, leading her to focus fully on her art. Lydia spent a year at the Graduate Fine Arts Department at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, before returning to New York to study at the Art Students League of New York (2005-07) under Larry Poons and Ronnie Landfield, where in her final year she won the prestigious Red Dot award for Excellence in Painting.

In 2020, Lydia’s first monograph, ‘Dance to Art’, written by Ian Findlay-Brown and published by SKIRA, was released and launched at the Tate Modern (2021). After being selected for the London Art Biennale, Lydia won the Terme award: a group show at the Art Museum of Chianciano in Tuscany. Many of Lydia’s paintings are in private collections in the US, Europe, and Asia, most notably in the collection of Singaporean collector Koh Seow Chuan. Lydia is represented by the Susan Eley Fine Art Gallery in New York City and REDSEA Gallery in Singapore.

Kathi Von Koerber – The Mother Earth in us

All Women are born with the faculty to think like a mother. All Men and Women can remember how to read and hear mother earth. In the indigenous traditions worldwide, this is known as the law of mother earth. The modern world calls it compassion and empathy. The wisdom of the earth lives in us.

She has spent time with elders from Bushmen tribes in Southern Africa, the Tuareg in the Sahara, Bernadette Riebenot in Gabon, Lakota, Navajo, and Cherokee in the United States, Xawante, Kashinawa, and Fulnio in Brazil, and the Camsra, Kogi, and Arawaks in Colombia. Kathi has taught and performed butoh dance, and afro- cuban dance internationally for the last 20 years, and has designated her life to the preservation of indigenous wisdom; advocating rituals as a key element in human evolution and initiation into adulthood.
