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.
