The White Rabbit is a fictional character in Lewis Caroll’s book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. He appears at the very beginning of the book, in chapter one and muttering “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!” Alice follows him down the rabbit hole into Wonderland.
Mondo ( full name Edmondo Zanolini ) first came to Bali 20 years ago, after a successful career in Italy as a theatre director and designer, and film/video artist. And with occasional forays to Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia, he continues to live in the hills of Ubud, Bali. Though he often exhibits with the late Murni, his Balinese life partner, this is his first major solo exhibition in Bali since he first came here 20 years ago and constitutes a summary of his life to date in the “wonderland” of Southeast Asia and Bali in particular. Where this journey has taken him is the subject of this show. Follow the rabbit and we shall endeavor to ponder the question, is it all too late?
