For artist Bharati Kapadia, making art is a deeply inward journey driven by essential, often spiritual, questions - `What is it that animates me? How do I stay with that impulse? Which materials can I work with to give form to that?` Intuition, and an affinity for material, drives her creative impulse and the art work takes form as it is being made.
We are delighted to invite Bharati Kapadia- visual artist, performer and an out-of-the box innovator - to Mumbai Local to share with us her artistic journey. From her beginnings as a graphic designer writing M F Husain`s bio while he sketched it, to her early years as a part of Astitiva (the Mumbai-based fine arts collective that sought freedom for the artist from having to depend on galleries for showing and selling their work), to her first solo show `Of Currents & Confluences` in which light plays a major role in making invisible visible, she will take us through her onward journey asÂ an artist and as a human being, a mutually dependant relationship.
Expect unexpected journeys through the artist`s process, expect to be treated to visuals of her work, and to think through the expression of an inward search for self-realisation through creating art.
See you on Saturday. If you are unable to make it to the venue, do join us on live feed.
This session is curated by Sanjna Kapoor.
RSVP for this session begins on Tuesday, 1st January, 2018.
