Best of India Record – White Sanctum Art Gallery

A few months ago I took part in “Beginning”, International Mail Art Exhibition at the White Sanctum Art Gallery in Bengaluru, India curated by Bindu P. V.

Nowadays Bindu PV’s International Mail Art Exhibition achieved the Best of India Records (BIR) for conducting the Longest International l Mail Art Exhibition.

Bindu P V, owner-cum-curator of White Sanctum Art Gallery and Conservation Centre, Bengaluru, India conducted the longest international mail art exhibition in the country, remarkably on a zero budget, at her art gallery from Sept 1, 2022 to Sept 15, 2023. The 380 days long exhibition had a participation of 118 artists from 34 countries. It also showcased a unique international artistamps collection for 3½ months.

Floralia – Munich, 2023

I am currently taking part in the “Floralia” International Mail Art Exhibition at the Kunsttreff Moosach. This exhibition is further integrated in the Flower Power Festival, which takes place from 03.02. – 07.10.2023 all over Munich.

THE FESTIVAL
Munich in a floral frenzy. And that for nine months. Indoors and outdoors. In parks and gardens, but also surprisingly and differently. On asphalt squares and canvases, in art spaces, lecture halls and restaurants. Theatrically, musically and literarily. And much more. With hundreds of actors.

Everything revolves around the flower. Its aesthetics. Its sustainability. Its science. It is artistic and natural, fascinating and versatile. As multifaceted as the urban society that participates in the festival in the most diverse areas. Munich celebrates.

At the Flower Power Festival Munich 2023 everything revolves around blossoms, literally but also figuratively. Science, sustainability, plant diversity, garden art, climate change, biodiversity, aesthetics, quality of life – these and many more are conceivable topics that can be staged, be it with exhibitions, workshops, walks, theatre performances, installations and more. Indoors, outdoors and digitally are the festival’s playgrounds.

The Gasteig, Europe’s largest cultural centre, the Munich-Nymphenburg Botanical Garden, BIOTOPIA – Bavaria’s Natural History Museum and the Kunsthalle München are the impetus behind the festival. Many actors can identify with the themes of nature, culture, city and blossom, which describe the core idea of the festival. There are hardly any limits to creativity. Anyone and everyone can participate, that is the basic idea.

In addition to participation, inclusion will play an important role this time. The festival offers the chance to sensitise many people to the topic and at the same time to enable as many people as possible to participate in cultural life. Ideally, this could result in sustainable impulses that move something in our society in the long term.

In the past decades, the depiction of blossoms, flowers, plants or nature in general has always played a major role in the visual arts: Be it that the ornament is used as a stylistic device, as a central, aesthetic-decorative motif, often also symbolically charged. Or whether it is explored thematically by illuminating nature as a habitat or by trying to reflect on and return to nature, especially in the urban environment.
What role does nature play in current contemporary art? How do we reflect on this theme? Do we present an idealised view of the beauty of nature, a “source of power” in aesthetic perception that puts us in a positive mood? As part of our everyday experiences? Or are we portraying new ways of seeing that take into account the influence of humans and their interaction with nature?

The sent artwork can be purchased by visitors at the Kunsttreff for a small donation of at least 5 euros. The donations go directly to the Green City e.V. association, an association aiming to create more green spaces in urban living spaces.

“Jump to the future” (the burial)

A few months ago my work has been selected for the “LeoniArt Project 2057 – Jump to the future” – International Exhibition curated by Corrado Leoni (I wrote about it in one of my previous posts).

Now the time capsule will sleep for 34 long years. The images will remain secret until the opening of the box.

34 years later, on May 7th 2057 (5-7-57) Corrado Leoni or his trusted collaborators will exhume the box, opening it and publishing the artworks on internet or in other media or sharing device available in that year. After May 2057 Corrado Leoni or his trusted collaborators will do their best to organize an exhibition with all the artworks found in the box.
