Kalag Ghoda Arts Festival
“No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced” – David Attenborough
Ever thought of Nature as Public Art? And that we need to collectively work towards maintaining and helping it thrive?
On display is the complexity of the Flamingo’s lifecycle, the ecosystems of which they are a part, their migratory patterns and the impact of human activity on their precarious existence. The exhibition presents a unique site of gathering, exploring the social, ecological threads encountered and generated in public spaces/commons. The questions that come out are:
Who’s in my wetland?
The title of the show is inspired by the two species of flamingoes that visit Mumbai each year, and it features artists who collaborate with nature in the face of increasing urgent warnings about the consequences of climate change. They have a keen eye to care, to make art that draws viewers’ attention to elemental resources — those we and other non human species cannot live without, and that for far too long we have taken for granted - water and waterways.
