Last year, I directed a small short film of dancer Indrani Datta – and her exceptional dance, and beautiful mesmerising eyes. Here is the video titled, Silent Beats in which the viewer is asked to follow the beats and imagine the music through her movements. Thank you to Indrani Datta and to Noi Kuan for his camera and editing assistance.
I am proud to announce my first workshop taking place at the Nehru Centre at the end of October 2009. The workshop titled ‘The Art of Seeing‘ will encourage participants to broaden their viewscape, and try to see things from a fresh perspective. I am pleased to announce the first of my guest speakers, Danfung Dennis His Website Here, who will be speaking on the new developments in film with digital SLR’s as well as his work in Iraq and Afghanistan. I will continuously be updating this list, and sharing further information. Here below is the e-flier, please feel free to let people know more about it.
I am proud to announce my cousin is opening a gallery/art space in Mumbai under the name of Volte.
Volte exists to provide a platform for non traditional art and culture in Mumbai. We see ourselves as a node, a gathering point to promote ideas and conversations between artists, technologists, activists, writers, intellectuals and the community at large. We will house an exhibition space, a curated bookshop, artist residencies/studios, a cafe, a film club and a platform for public art.
Volte is a radical shift from the traditional gallery model, where the exhibitions, events and audience intermingle in a dynamic and exciting program. While we promote all media of contemporary art, we are interested in advocating and exhibiting projects which blur the lines between the arts, sciences, spirituality and life itself.
