About the Show :
Our memories of childhood are often defined by sights, smells and sounds and oftentimes by our association with flora and fauna. We recollect often with great pleasure and a sense of nostalgia, the taste of apples stolen from a neighborhood garden or the scent of certain flowers in particular seasons or associations of Champa and Raat ki Rani that speak of fragrant nights spent on open terraces, and the association of Marigold and Henna with rituals.
The exhibition attempts to capture in so many images this sense of nostalgia as well as an innocent delight and joy experienced through nature.
The artists have attempted to draw images inspired by nature and plant life akin to botanical studies which recreate the smells and sounds of their early memories, essentially to try and encapsulate the essence of an emotional experience or ‘Rasa’.
