Focusing on the Goddess and other Archetypes across cultures at Gallery Gitanjali

Gallery Gitanjali will be showcasing an exhibition entitled– The Sacred Feminine: The Goddess and other Archetypes, curated by Mriam Koshy-Sukhija on the day of the second blue moon of this year, on March 31.

These works were created at an Art Residency and held at The Cajueiro Homestead from March 25 to 30.

The curatorial trajectory for the residency was to explore, re-interpret, draw parallels and re-invoke the Sacred Feminine by focusing on the Goddess and Other Archetypes across Cultures. The Art Residency is an initiative of Gallery Gitanjali to promote and support art and to create a platform for artists from Goa and the rest of country to work together and share thoughts and ideas on their practice and journey as artists.

The artists whose work will be on display are – Adhi Vishal, Apurva Kulkarni, Francis Desousa , Praveen Naik, Rajendra Usapkar, Rajeshree Thakker, Sanatan Saha, Sara Khalifi, Siddharth Gosavi, Sonia Rodrigues Sabharwal, Swapnesh Vaigankar, Vasudev Shetye, Veenita Chendvankar, Viraj Vasant Naik, Yolanda de Sousa, Pushpanjali Sharma, Godot Laifungbam and Priyal Woodpecker, each of whom have focused on the feminine in their art practice .

While the works of art made by the artists in response to this curatorial focus will be on display at the gallery during the exhibition, Priyal Woodpecker would be responding to them in verse. Godot Laifungbam’s murals invoking the Greek Goddesses were made in situ at The Cajueiro Homestead and have been documented for viewing.

(The exhibition will be inaugurated on March 31 at 6.30 p.m. and will be kept open for public viewing till April 30.)
