“A dancing cobra greets you soon after you enter the newly opened Museum of Art and Photography in Bangalore’s Kasturba Road. Created by artist Tarik Currimbhoy, the oscillating structure made of steel is expected to be a favourite among the museum’s youngest visitors: the children.
Right on the other end is British sculptor Stephen Cox’s not-so-children-friendly series of sinuous yoginis and the more minimalist rishis — all made out of Indian basalt. Between the two is a wall where you can light up a candle in your name. How it works: scan a code on your phone, enter your name and choose a candle to light up with it. The Museum of Art and Photography wants you to remember that you were once there.”
