Material – Bamboo

 

For the last few years, the traditional crafts of the region and their underlying history and relationship with the communities has been a major part of my research and journey. I am collaborating with Prodip Roy who has outstanding skills in the traditional bamboo bending technique. We have been working together for the last several years experimenting with various methods and techniques of bamboo as a material. In this particular work, we have attempted to transfer the brush strokes from one of my action painting into a bamboo canvas. The bamboo platform was installed as part of the ceiling of a room of the residency. This is an ongoing project, developing gradually.
