Paolo Canevari. CONSTELLATIONS

Paolo Canevari’s work stems from thoughts and reflections on the transient nature of art and on the significance of artistic sculptures in modern society. While wondering on the value and origin of the most intimate aspects of memory, the artist develops his own personal language where symbols, pop culture, historical knowledge and politics are intertwined in a new interpretation of daily life and where memory and remembrance take on a metaphysical form.

THUKRAL & TAGRA, BYCULLA

Mumbai’s largest public green open space has been transformed into a nature and heritage walk for Mumbaikars to acquaint with the historic location they live in. Set up in 1861, the city’s most visited public space boasts the most diverse agglomeration of trees (over 3,000) with hundreds of tree and plant species. The walk will pave its way through the greens, creating parallels between art (Thukral and Tagra’s works), nature (the botanical garden) and heritage (the museum, Gloria Church, Masina Hospital and Regal Cafe). The walk will feature 26 artworks inspired by the flora of the botanical garden created by the noted Indian artists Thukral and Tagra.
