IGNITE & INSPIRE
The curated gallery looks at igniting new emotions and interpretation in our contemporary thinking and lifestyles by exploring the culture and craft of a region like Gujarat.
When the conventional wisdom as well as the evidence leads one to perceive the population as forward looking, trade centric, travelers and explorers – raises a questioning look on the face of someone who is not aware of the immense potential of the craftsmen of the region, let alone the aesthetic appeal of its offering to the contemporary lifestyles.
The attempt is to table, display, collaborate with as well as integrate the designs of the Gujarati craft alongside the contemporary extravaganza. Craft in isolation may appeal to the few, the dialogue and attempt of integrating it into the contemporary offering – functional, modern and with a sense of identity – will tip the scale and fulfill the need for the balancing act.
