Mapping Memories With Art

Workshop Series for Adults

12 September, 2020 - 13 September, 2020
Zoom Online Sessions

Over a weekend in September, join us as we explore the idea of ‘memory’ in a workshop series for adults called Mapping Memories With Art

 

Between The Lines: Creating Found Poetry With Bakula Nayak

 

The series begins with artist Bakula Nayak who leads participants into a painted-poetry workshop. The session will involve participants bringing found pieces of paper from their household, reading the seemingly random text in them to find personal connections and creating a piece of poetry and a painting through selective erasure and reinterpretation of their material.

12th September | 11.00 am – 12.00 pm

This is a paid programme charged at 200 INR per person.

Capturing Time: Making Chlorophyll Photo Prints with Arpan Mukherjee

 

In the second session, participants learn an alternative photo printing process called the Chlorophyll Technique. The chlorophyll process is an organic photography process where the prints are bleached by sunlight directly onto the surface of leaves. This method can be accomplished without the requirement of a camera or a darkroom, and the results are stunningly delicate and beautiful works of art.

13th September | 11.00 am – 12.00 pm

This is a paid programme charged at 200 INR per person.

Book your seats here.

 

*To book seats for both sessions, please register separately through the individual links attached under each.

 

About The Facilitators

 

Bakula Nayak noses out the magic stifled in the everyday. Her passion for collecting vintage paper, fused with her love for imagining the life stories of people who owned them, translates into tangible works of art. She breathes new life into the now forgotten pieces of beauty by painting on them. 

 

Arpan Mukherjee is an artist and an art educator, whose work is based on documented photographic history. Arpan uses the 19th-century process of photography as the medium of his works. Presently, he teaches printmaking at the department of Graphic Art, Visva Bharati University, Santiniketan.
