Seminyak’s MÉTIS Restaurant & Gallery, the product of culinary visionaries Chef Nicolas “Doudou” Tourneville and Managing Director Said Alem, has been pioneering the pairing of fine dining and fine art in Bali since October 2009.
Ranked one of Asia’s Top 20 restaurants (Miele Guide Best of Asia, 2013) and recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence (2013), MÉTIS is renowned for its haute French Mediterranean cuisine, presented in a stunning open-air dining room overlooking a beautiful vast garden.
Sara Garzillo, the new Gallery Director in partnership with gallery manager Youlanda Pasaribu, has added new jewelry designers to the gallery’s impressive array of statues, sculptures, woodworks, and furniture including several contemporary pieces from all over Asia especially Burma, Thailand, China, and Indonesia. Fluent in 6 languages and with a background in fashion and business in Milan, her impeccable taste has made a refreshing impact on the gallery as well as our events and exhibitions which have kept the gallery on the radar lately. Some of the works include Huang Gang’s “Last Gun,” a red lacquered bronze statue of Marylin Monroe-cum-the Statue of Liberty with a Chinese Fighter/Ballerina and “Good Good Good,” a bronze sculpture of hands which was recently sold. From the famed Luo Brothers, the gallery has acquired political “kitsch” collages and sculptures blending iconic images of Chinese history with similarly emblematic global consumer brands. Works by Bali’s own accomplished artists — and artists in residence — include a series of wooden tree carvings by “Pak Wayan,” commissioned especially for the gallery.
Complemented by antique furniture, weapons, and adornments from Java, Kalimantan, Irian Jaya, and Timor, MÉTIS collections capture the depth and range of Asian art across history. Accessories are also available at the boutique featuring stunning silk sarongs, batik fans, and Javanese batik.
MÉTIS just launched new summer collection available exclusively at its spacious boutiques. Bali-based designers as well as international designers contribute to a range of accessories, including women’s clutches & bags, silk scarves, and silver jewelry with precious and semi-precious stones in all colors of the spectrum. From the beginning of August, Metis Boutiques is representing John Hardy Collection with pieces for both men and women.
