Artists from 5 countries create artworks out of industrial scrap at Abhisaran

Nov 28, 2014 15:30 IST

Artists from five countries have come together at Vijayanagara in Karnataka to create artworks fashioned out of industrial scrap.

They created the artwork during a three-work long residency called Abhisaran, which began on 10 November 2014 and will stretch till 30 November 2014.

At the end of the residency, says the curator, the artworks would be placed in communities in and around Vijaynagara.

The idea is to inspire artists to push their boundaries and create works that engage with the community and how they can communicate with general audiences.

A total of 10 artists from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal are creating paintings, installations, video and sound.

Artists make use of site-specific material like metal scrap, local pottery, local crafts and material at the residency, which is being supported by the JSW Foundation.
