Sketch from #Time: 42nd St. NY

    ArtRooms 2015 is an initiative from the director Cristina Cellini Antonini. She wanted to create an event to put artists at the heart of the art international scene in a “non-conventional” exhibition space. The result is ArtRooms, an International Art Fair in Melia White House London. During four days it was possible to discover more than 100 artists in an original space where they can create their own environment and visitors a real art experience.

Del Mar Para Ti, de #Curio.sea.ty

   Dicen que cuando naces al lado del mar estableces una relación especial con el gigante azul, es difícil estar mucho tiempo lejos de él, necesitas tenerlo cerca, olerlo, etc. El mar es como el corazón que late para mantenernos con vida. Cuando leí la convocatoria #DelMarParaTi de Poca Gallery, decidí participar porque me sentí identificada con el proyecto.



Galería Poca.

C/ de Abatxolo, 5, 48920 Portugalete, Vizcaya

  #DelMarParati es una iniciativa de Lorna Barrowclough and Hondartza Fraga que explora la relación de los humanos con el mar. 



#DelMarParaTi forma parte del proyecto Curio•sea•ty, las artistas Lorna Barrowlough y Hondartza Fraga abrieron una convocatoria para que los artistas contribuyeran con una o más imágenes que expresaran su relación con el mar. La convocatoria, que recibió una cálida acogida entre 134 artistas, culminó en una exposición en la Galería Poca, Portugalete - Vizcaya -, que se inauguró el pasado viernes 19 de diciembre. 


   "La intención de esta exposición es mostrar la relación ecléctica y kaleidoscópica que existe entre el arte y el mar, por lo que han decidido incluir en la exposición a todos los artistas que respondieron".




   
   Last Friday, 19th December, the first exhibition of From Sea To You/ Del Mar para Ti opened at Poca Gallery, (Portugalete, Vizcaya).

From Sea To You is an art project and exhibition that explores human relationships with the sea by artists Lorna Barrowclough and Hondartza Fraga.

My contribution to #FromSeaToYou.

Curio•sea•ty will explore human relationships with the sea, using objects that help shape our experience of it as a starting point. The notions of the sea’s identity, distance, survival and physicality of the sea will be used as the framework on which to question common associations with the sea and its role in cultural imagination.

GOD Show, Pune (India) 2014

GOD SHOW, 

Curated by Rekha Sameer.


Pune (India) 2014

from 14th to 21st, December, 2014.


   As a child growing up in a lower middle class brahmin family, the only way to assure oneself of a good afterlife was to engage in rituals and religious practices that celebrated the unique attributes of the 333 million gods in the hindu pantheon. Living and traveling in the United Kingdom and Europe, the past 25 years have been an introduction to alternative religious practices, icons and diverse representations of ‘GOD’. Presented with so many alternative approaches, it can result in a disconnect, a sense of floating around rudderless. This is the beginning point for this show. This show is a platform to generate dialogue and find out current interpretations on the concept of ‘GOD’. It is refreshing to encounter Joseph Turnbull’s challenge for the show So I will try and post the artwork to India without a stamp and see if it gets there with the help of GOD. If it arrives GOD is real, if it doesn't arrive GOD is not real”. 

The best art from London.

Why International?

   Religion and GOD are subjects that can create strong volatile emotions in people. We know artists in India, who have previously taken creative license in their depiction of gods and goddesses, have been lynched publicly and forced to flee the country. It is therefore no surprise that this pressure and expectation from society has led to a rise in ‘safe’ art. Art that doesn’t question and challenge tends to lose its edgy role, that of unsettling apathy in current attitudes. The West offers an open culture where artists can challenge, question and mock current practices and create a rich platform for critical dialogue and encourage new perspectives into current attitudes and thinking.

   I hope the artworks in this show will go beyond its aesthetic and commercial value and instead transfer this questioning attitude into the viewer. 
By Rekha Sameer.



Why Pune?

Pune is a bustling metropolis and is characterised typically by a villager in his dhoti and Nehru cap, bare feet passing through busy wifi zones , students with their headphones, mobiles and rucksacks, the elderly strolling to temples and ashram and foreigners walking purposefully to the yoga centers dotted around Pune. In a city and in a country where religion occupies a significant role in the everyday lives of the people, having an art exhibition showing responses from different parts of the western world on GOD could bring a refreshing change into the existing rhythm.

difference, whatever your religion there is always a reason to believe.
