Living With Art  2014


“Living with Art” evolved with the concept of actually going into remote areas of any  location/society  and interactively participate with the people and artisan within that society.

The “Project” intentions were to make the participants involve and work with the people there and to produce artworks that would create a visual impact on that community. The idea was  also to move away from the tourists and art intervention contemporary approach to installation art and create artwork which could related to that society and was integral part of that space and its society.

The other objectives were to have social, aesthetic and artistic impact on that society through the creation of artworks.
