Gallery Macan Tidur
American owner (and art historian) Susi Johnston and her Italian partner Bruno Piazza make regular treasure-hunting trips through the Southeast Asian outback for one-of-a-kind artifacts—which wind up in their shop. Susi focuses on 18th-century textiles; Bruno on tribal art and ancient jewelry. The result is a gallery that’s chockablock with everything from century-old carved Burmese slingshots to tribal beadwork and basketry from Borneo to barnacle-encrusted, centuries-old Chinese porcelain salvaged from shipwrecks around Indonesia. Macan Tidur’s second gallery is in Seminyak and showcases a collection of textiles and artworks in a series of themed exhibitions.
