Edge Effect - a Public Art project by Sunaparanta – Goa Centre for the Arts for the Artist Mentoring Program. This is a collateral event for Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2014 curated by Kanchi Mehta
The Emerging Artists Mentoring Program is an initiative by Sunaparanta to encourage, support and promote innovative and experimental projects in the visual arts, and to provide resource support to art students and artists of the coming generations.
This collaboration with Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2014 aligns Sunaparanta not only with its mission, but also mutually supports each other to infiltrate (contemporary) art and culture within local cities and the youth of this generation. This particular project proposed by us supports our Emerging Artists Mentoring Program, an initiative by the Art Centre to encourage, support and promote innovative and experimental projects in the visual arts, and to provide resource support to art students and artists of the coming generations.
12th December 2014 to 29th March 2015 at Kochi Beach Front, Fort Kochi.
Artists participating are Mansoor Ali, Pallavi Paul, Rathin Barman
Mansoor Ali is an artist based in Baroda, India. He uses ready-made and found objects such as the chairs in this work, and by altering their pre-conceived configuration, proportion and context, the artist creates sculptures and installations that draw attention to the various facets of power politics prevalent in India. Mansoor is represented by Gallery Maskara, Mumbai.
Pallavi Paul is an artist based in Mumbai. Her primary interest lies in taking ‘found situations’ and reconfiguring them to present fantastical possibilities. She expresses this concept through drawing, photography, video and sculptural installations. She is represented by Project 88 in Mumbai.
Rathin Barman is an artist based in Tripura, India. He studies how economic and environmental structures in both urban and rural settings have been transformed due to globalization, commenting on a growing dependence on metro areas and the subsequent growth of material consumption in society. He has exhibited extensively across the world and is represented by Experimenter, Kolakata.
