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 this Sunday for the screening of Remembering Kurdi – a film by Saumyananda Sahi followed by a discussion with the editor of the filmTanushree Das on the 14 of July, 2019 from 11:30 AM– 12:30 PM at Museum of Goa, Pilerne Industrial Estate, Pilerne, Bardez, Goa. Brief on the film: Ever since the Salaulim Dam submerged the Kurdi census town in South Goa over three decades ago, 550 families have had to relocate and forge new lives elsewhere. However, every year the waters recede and the ruins resurface for a few short weeks before the rains. During this time, past inhabitants return to what is left of their homes, to perform rituals, have picnics and remember their dead. Gurucharan Kurdikar has vivid memories of his childhood in Kurdi – but now lives in a city far away. Venisha Fernandes was born after the submergence, but has grown up listening to stories of a lost paradise. Both return to search for where they belong – in places imagined and places real. As Gurucharan and Venisha converse with a whole array of people, different aspects of the landscape and prior societal inter-relationships begin to emerge. The harsh memories of caste and feudal injustice are discussed with as much curiosity and fervor as personal […]
