CONCEPTUALISED BY RENU MODI
A TALE OF TWO CITIES | INDIA & SRI LANKA
Programming by Serendipity Arts Trust
Gallery Espace in collaboration with Theertha International Artists Collective
This project that was initiated in the year 2015, is a strong step towards addressing the issues of shared histories within the sub-continent.
Six artists from Indian and five from Sri Lanka embarked on a journey to understand the politics of cities, religions and the stories that places tell. Both Anuradhapura and Varanasi in themselves are witness to the past, the present and serve as a trajectory to the future. The intention of this project at the India Art Fair is to engage, question and re-affirm the importance of the process over the end. The story of this engagement is being bought forth through audio-visual media documenting the interactions of the artists with the city and with each other.
