A show of Artwork created by Zorawar Singh, Kai Singh and Miles Singh

French artist, Ana Bloom’s artwork Souffles, Breath was added to the Museum’s collection. The artwork will be available for viewing through mid-July. The piece derives meaning from the philosophies of interconnectedness that are attributed to the Indian subcontinent. “I am the daughter of a two times political refugee father,” says Bloom when talking about the inspiration behind her work. “This family history impacted very strongly my relationship and questioning about the world we live in and my artistic research.” In her introductory text to Souffles, Breath, art curator, Lina Vincent, writes, “Ana’s ‘Breath’ series,  is as hard-hitting as it is painterly in visualisation – it brings together nuances of physical experiences with layers of philosophical and spiritual conceptualisation. In the interplay of concealment and revelation, the still images bring to life anonymous beings through the surging, bubbling water. The artwork captures essences of individual breath from across the globe – raising questions on the human condition, evoking degrees of separation and migration in the contemporary world. The artwork becomes more relevant today in Goa when the state is realising migration-related issues of its own. Ana Bloom’s work along with all the other pieces at the Museum will be available for viewing during regular Museum hours.

Join us next Sunday for a talk by Sujata Noronha on the topic The Social in the Act of Reading on 30 of June 2019 from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm at Museum of Goa, Pilerne Industrial Estate, Pilerne, Bardez, Goa. Brief: Reading is often imagined as a solitary activity in an atmosphere of quiet. However, the act of reading is perhaps one of the most socially volatile acts of the mind that compel conversations, sharing, argument, discussion and expression. Through the work of a small independent trust, Bookworm has been journeying through Goa and beyond inciting social acts of reading as a way to a more humane engagement. Sujata Noronha, who directs the work of Bookworm, has an M Phil in Education from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences and is a literacy educator. She will present the myriad ways in which a journey with reading can become a powerful social tool and an act of joy.
