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! :)

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.



Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

Memories of...#26DaysOfSummer #A-ZChallenge

I don't know if this one counts for a poem. My rhyming sense failed miserably as emotion took over. A stinging emotion called nostalgia. A nostalgia which is synonymous to summer itself and a lot of other sweet things.

Here goes:





What is your favorite mango memory? share it with me here, won't you? :)

He could see her directly ahead through the shimmering blue glass window of Cafe Hafooda in Saket. The afternoon sun streamed along from the western side, casting long shadows across the table. Cyrus glanced up at Jennifer and then down at his mobile. 

JJ liked Cyrus but she had a lot of questions in her mind. What was he doing? Secretly texting someone? Investigating without her help? Trying to solve something before someone else is on it?
She was on this case with him. She wanted to do this for herself and for that little child and may be something more than she could comprehend. Whatever was his rationale, JJ decided to confront him. She spun herself around, sat down and found herself face-to-face with Cyrus. There was a sparkle in JJ’s eyes and Cyrus’s were menacing with thirst. Her tattoo seized Cyrus’s attention most. He was transfixed. There was some kind of ‘Ul…
