Event Description : ART ICHOL presents "Disappearing Dialogues" a unique multi-media, interactive exhibition, Curated by Nobina Gupta.

The project has been supported by MP Tourism and Arts Ananda Trust. Featuring a diverse range of paintings, videos, wood and iron products, textiles and garments to films, book art, photography, furnishings – all created as a collaboration between local communities of Madhya Pradesh  and 14 Indian and international artists – the event hopes to bring the focus back on the lost traditions and cultural practices of the area.

The participating practitioners are Clare Elizabeth Kennedy (Architect, Australia), Ulrike Reinhard (Community Service and Traveler, Germany & Madhya Pradesh),  Sandeep Dhopate (Photographer, Maharashtra), Trish Bygott & Nathan Crotty (Textile Designers, Australia), Lenny Rubenovitch (Wood and Furniture Artist, Canada), Pipson Sebastian Mampilli (Entrepreneur on Sustainable Living, Karnataka), Shilo Engelbrecht (Fashion and Textile Designer, Australia), Shatarupa Thakurta Roy (Academician and Theoretician, Uttar Pradesh), Amritah Sen (Visual Artist, West Bengal), Rita Banerjee (Filmmaker), Abhishekha  Krishnagopal  (Nature Educator), Payal Nath ( Product Designer  of NGO Kadam India), Shashwati Garai Ghosh ( Odissi dancer),  and Nobina Gupta (Visual and Installation artist, West Bengal).

Says Ambica Beri, founder, Art Ichol: “My vision for Art Ichol is not merely to provide inspiring and world class-facilities for artists to work in, but also bring art out of the limiting white-cube structure of a gallery space. Working with the community, enhancing their skills and being able to support them in finding alternate means of livelihood has always been an important vertical of Art Ichol and through the research-based Disappearing Dialogues project, we have been able to reach out to many collaborators, government, artists, local communities and other important stakeholders.”

Says Nobina Gupta, initiator and curator of Disappearing Dialogues: “M.P is a place of vast enrichment and of abundant resources, of lost histories, cultures, musical legacies and traditions that are hidden deep in the area. The heritage and culture of indigenous communities should be valued and preserved before it disappears. Traditional practices of organic farming, brick making, and forest rejuvenation are excellent examples of alternate techniques for modern man to learn about sustainable living. For this reason, Ambica and I collaborated to invite national and international artists, practicing in different fields to come together for an interdisciplinary research and collaborative residency focusing on environment, culture, heritage and the indigenous community at Art Ichol in Maihar. The artists used their creative and research abilities to study disappearing practices and develop thought-provoking artwork and material in response to their findings.”
