Digital Presentation by artist
Bharati Kapadia: “Spotlighting the Image Within"
on Tuesday, 29th November, at 4.00 p.m.
The Lit Club of the ASM cordially invites you to attend a digital presentation by artist Bharati Kapadia: "Spotlighting the Image Within" on Tuesday 29th November, 2016, at 4 p.m. in the Durbar Hall of the Society.
The thrust of the presentation “Spotlighting the Image Within” is ‘unfolding’: uncovering the hidden connections which play a crucial role in shaping the outward form of an art work.
Towards this finale, of unfolding the connection between the image and the experience from which it has emerged, Bharati will be sharing with you 4 instances: 2 from the epic Ramayana, 1 from Bhaagvat Puraan which deals with stories of Krishna's childhood exploits and 1 from the treatise on Indian aesthetics, the Naatyashaastra, which highlight and bring to the fore certain aspects of the Indian ethos which form a vital part of our cultural identity. This will be followed by a few images of her work selected from different phases to trace how certain features in the work reflect the experience from which they are born.
Bharati Kapadia is a visual artist and a performer based in Mumbai. Her work addresses concerns related to memory, identity and inner evolution. She has evolved techniques where intervention through light becomes crucial for a complete viewing experience.
We look forward to seeing you on this occasion.
