Foreword

“River/body and legends” held at IGNCA last year has been a unique multimedia presentation in the context of Indian contemporary art. The exhibition of the works by three woman artists showcased their ideated journey on Ganga which was participatory in nature as they have involved themselves in many social practises. Customs and rituals through re-enactments underlining their feminine identity evoking a discourse on female body in the current cultural practice. Each artist has taken her own point of immersing into the concept of Ganga to talk about her ecological, mythical and economical aspects that are specifically related to Ganga.

Witnessing her in today’s point of view is another of the artists’ efforts to bridge the gaps between traditional and contemporary cultural practices. The mud architecture of Mati Ghar with its intrinsic special structurally and conceptually. During my personal visit to the show I felt the need to bring out a publication that would enable to share similar experience with a larger audience. Its result is this publication.
