KOCHI-MUZIRIS BIENNALE

Whorled Explorations

INDIA - Kerala, Kochi

Art of Indian subcontinent must be understood in relation to the culture and ideological concepts of this diverse and highly ritualistic civilization. Traditional Indian art is expressive, sensitive, and highly designed. It portrays a world, which has been relative to the beliefs of the Indian people. Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism - revolve around the conceptual paradox of existence. That is, our senses; sight, touch, smell, taste, and sound; and our emotions and inner spirit. Within Indian art, it is all these things that make our world. From the 11th to the 18th century, Indian Art undur influence of Islam became more geometrical. This rule dramatically changed the face of Indian Art. British rule brought with it Western influences. However, on the other hand, their archaeological studies uncovered many ancient examples of Indian art and Indian artists experimented with many of the early twentieth century art styles. Our Art Trails will take you on journey from ancient Ajanta caves to contemporary art venues such as Kochi-Muziris Biennale.
