A Mythical Equation

The region of the Indian sub-continent is recognised for its diverse cultural history, rich in manifestations of art and literature. While political events and power shifts over the centuries have challenged the continuity of certain traditions, present times still reflect a number of these vernacular practices, which have been evolving more contemporary idioms against all odds and adapting to newer mediums as well as forms of display. 

"There are many folk and tribal artists who have become recognised in their own right, standing alongside fine-art trained artists – a definite transformation from those who worked anonymously following ritual rhythms.


“A Mythical Equation”  brings together a selection of these artists’ works from all across India, celebrating local interpretations of the Epic Ramayana and showcasing the vibrant imagery and eloquent visual narrative that accompanies such storytelling. The artworks revolve around the intersection of the divine with the worldly, and the sacred with the secular – unique qualities of the Indian cultural landscape that open up myriad spaces of artistic experimentation.
