It was 2013 when I visited KalaGhoda for the first time. It was a visually exciting experience filled with colours, people and lots and lots of pictures. This year I was in Mumbai when the festival was going on and I immediately grabbed that opportunity and went to see the Visual Arts of the KalaGhoda festival.
Here are a few of the installations that were put up this year and I have also put down what each of them personally meant to me or anything I thought about them.
Click on the Pictures for the Slide show and please leave comments about what these pictures mean to you. 🙂
Welcomes the Metro Train into the Chaos of Mumbai City
Depict the the softness of the rose and the mechanics of the turning wheel on the same cube. Depicts that in Mumbai opposites do co-exist.
Some other instances that depict the same phenomena ” Co-existence of Opposites ”
Shows the insecurity of the girl increasing due to increasing Rape and subsequent media coverage.
This tap is made of many other taps. According to me it depict the importance of Water for a city to survive.
This shows the reflection of all the people standing under it. The glass breaks the reflection in small pieces to depict the Choas.
One of my favourite pictures. It shows the contrast of the urban construction against the traditional colours of bangles. Another installation which depicts co-existence.
The other side of the earlier installation. It shows the difference of attire and mentality of the women in the current generation. We are no more objects of show, we are the force that runs the world.
Here’s a picture where this contrast is wonderfully shown.
I love the way all these colourful bangles unite to make something look so beautiful.
This installation depicts peace.
Finally, my favourite ! What really attracts me to this installation is the lovely colour and the effect of the lights on the disco ball which falls on these butterflies and brings their wings to life !!
