Biennale

 

I happened to visit the Kochi Muziris Biennale this year. Although my inclination to art is confined to my fascination towards Vincent Van Gogh and my love for graffiti, the experience of this visit gave me an insight on an artist’s perspective of art. All the art installations were unique, with a clear stamp of contemporary thinking paired with simplicity in them.
Here is a glimpse of what I witnessed at the Biennale - Some pictures and some tidbits :)

Picture 1 – A perfect view of the Fort as it meets the Arabian Sea with grace. It was a fine sunny day, beautiful skies and a lot of fishes swimming into eternity.




Picture 2 – At first, just like any other art-blind person would react, I was puzzled at this installation. From a distance, it just seemed like a big, round, blue wall-hanging. A closer look revealed a single meticulously knit, crumpled blue cloth which formed a perfect circle.


 
Picture 3 – I was transported to a different dimension when I stepped into this sepia-colored space. The lighting, an old boat, and thousands of old photographs lying on the floor gave this space a totally eerie aura.  I couldn’t get my eyes off the Asian woman in Picture 4spellbinding art work by Dinh Q Le.





Picture 5 – Although, I didn’t quite get the science behind the installation, I made sure I captured the movement as a GIF. J



Picture 6 – I am always charmed by shapes and designs in windows and constructions. French windows are amazing! This one here is not French but I love it nonetheless



Picture 7 – A Swastik Swiss Army Knife with all the accessories you need by Biju Joze



Picture 8 – Artha by Prasanth Pandey – an installation made from blood sample blades (At first look, I was amazed but after knowing these are blood samples, I did squirm a bit)

 

Picture 9 – The Life of Stars by Lindy Lee – An amazing metal spill installation that caught my attention





Picture 10 – This is one of the best of all the installations I saw in this Biennale. It was more like a theme-park experience where Ryota Kuwakubo's Lost#12 showed us the play with light and shadow. A must-see!



Picture 11 – This piece here gathered a lot of crowd as it was placed outside and the water was whirl pooling in a great pace. I have tried to capture a GIF out of it.






Picture 12 – Awed and Amazed! That was how I was when I looked though this mirror reflecting installation.
 

 
That's all folks! :)

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"




"Fine, I am growing a pine forest in my head and yes, it is fall time and some trees are starting to change color. I be…

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…

Johnny Bravo

When I thought about the alphabet J, the first thing that struck my mind is one of my favourite cartoon characters - Johnny Bravo. Although I was too young to understand his gimmicks, flirtatiousness and his pick up lines which failed most of the times, here are a few things I absolutely love about this character:


His totally awesome yellowy, blond-ish hair
His ‘beefcake’ physique and the way he carries himself with the tightttt black Tee, the blue pants and the ever so cool sunglasses!
His cute stupidity when he tries to impress girls and gets beaten up in the end
His unscathed confidence is totally epic
His style and karate chops make him the coolest cartoon character ever!


I have failed so many times trying to sketch Johnny boy during school days. But I always adore him, for; he is the coolest dude and my favourite *blushes*

I would like to thank all my earnest and patient readers for spending time in my blog. It does mean a lot and it definitely inspires me to write more (I totally can&#…
