“Layers of the Gaze” Drawings on fabric, travel journals and drawing books By Andreia Dulianel, plastic artist from Brazil.
The exhibition also features plastic productions created during her artist residency in India. The works reveal a process of construction through a process of layering, in the veiling and unveiling of forms, through overlaps and transparencies of the elements of visual language
Ever heard Valentine’s day is western culture? That we Indians should not indulge in it? Ever heard society shame someone or put up religious or cultural rulings to stop people from observing this day?
Do you really think you are the only one affected?
Well, won’t say Breative have come up with a solution, but maybe a Desi version of Valentine’s day! Maybe our culture does not permit observing a day for love, but what about our very own Ishq?
On 16th of February (yeah yeah, post valentine’s day, parents won’t object this way you know 😉 ),Asim Khan, the founder of “The 1988 Company” is organizing an event at Indian Islamic Cultural Center for the purpose of celebrating love. And not merely to celebrate love, but to quench the thirst of lovers that the society quite rightfully bans. “Jashn-e-Ishqa” is not merely for lovers, it is for all kinds of Aashiq, as we try to bring together today’s youth with our culture. Ishq is something very intrinsic to the Indian society. Among relations, friends, hidden behind that casual verbal fight, all we can see is Ishq.
On 16th of February, they bring together all the different cultures and colors of Indian society under a single umbrella. The idea is not merely a merry making of couples, but the enjoyment of Indian youth with the Ishq of our very Indian culture. To be more precise, we would celebrate the Ishq in the form of Poetry, Story Telling, Sufi Music, Painting and Photography exhibitions, and a Panel Discussion on Love.
The 1988 Company hopes to reach the hearts of live audience by this event and to write a history in the name of Jashn-e-Ishqa in the world backed by love.
And if someone tells you love is something to be hidden behind a curtain, behind a closed door, given them a peg on cheek, a tight hug and let them revel in the mysteries of love!
