This exhibition is a story presented through images of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, specially reproduced on silk fabric to create a new visual and aesthetic experience besides a world of mystery and charm we know so little about.
The exhibition is an attempt to create a new visual and aesthetic experience, which has been printed on silk fabric. This brittle world is rich with startling beauty and magical lyricism, washed by a rolling green and blue sea, stated Pankaj Sekhsaria.
An ancient turtles nesting on desolate beaches, translucent jellyfish floating in rich tropical waters, giant rainforest trees holding up the heavens, whistling teals in the soft light of a reflected moon turning away is a challenge as we are drawn into this striking but delicate, clumsy like island worlds.
Island Worlds brings together Pankaj Sekhsaria’s 20 years of work and photography in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
