“Under the Canopy of Love” with Indian artist Jayashree Chakravarty – in conversation
09 Nov 2018

Jayashree Chakravarty’s Earth as Haven: Under the Canopy of Love” comes to India following a highly successful and critically acclaimed first showing at the prestigious Musée National Des Arts Asiatiques, Guimet, Paris in October 2017, where we saw the artist respond to the circular plan of the Guimet’s Carte Blanche space, with a site-specific and immersive installation. At the Jehangir Nicholson Gallery at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya(CSMVS) in Mumbai, the works connect with the physicality of the new location and visitors to “Earth as Haven” encounterlarge, suspended paper structures and a network of imaginary forms inspired by the minute intricacies of insect dwellings,such as wasp nests and cocoons.
