Sunaparanta - Goa Centre for the Arts in partnership with Nature Morte, New Delhi opened ‘Where the Flowers Still Grow’ - an exhibition of works by Bharat Sikka on Friday, 12th May 2017 under the curation of Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi

Where the Flowers Still Grow is based on Bharat Sikka’s discovery of Mirza Waheed’s novel The Collaborator, which tells the story of a young Kashmiri man’s struggle with his own sense of self, buffeted by the exigencies of history and the present. This propelled Sikka to make numerous visits to Kashmir in 2014 and 2015, travelling throughout the region to photograph the people who live there, to attempt to make some sense of their dilemma through his own personal experience.

The opening was attended by the patrons Dattaraj & Dipti Salgaocar, Portuguese Consul General Dr. Rui Baceira, Mr. Pandurang Phaldesai, local artists and art lovers.
