Kalamkar Hall, Bikaner House, New Delhi, India

Danfe Arts presents A Lake That Once Was, an evocative exhibition that inquires into Kathmandu’s historic metamorphosis from a sacred lake, embraced by divine beings, into a symphony of the human spirit, architectural wonders, ancient iconography and shared urban existence.

The city emerges as a nexus of identity, where each artist’s memories, life experiences and observations collide. Through the lens of architecture and urban motifs, the exhibition delicately portrays local settlements, invoking a sense of loss and salvage. As the urban landscape unfolds, the artworks also reveal textures mirroring the frustrations born from the chaos of city life and seek to understand the balance between order and disorder.
