Artist talk with Parul Sinha
Moderated by Agnieszka Kilian
During her talk Parul Sinha, the artist based in New Delhi will introduce us to the techniques of kantha.
This highly treasured craft practices emerged in West Bengal where the women’ communities for generations have been recycling old sarees and dhotis: layering, stitching and weaving with the threads pulled out form original cloths.
This technique is also a spiritual practice of “making whole again that which is fragmented or broken.” In her talk Parul will shed a light on the meaning of this practice, its social importance, shared knowledge, and the question of preservation of this unique technique.
We will connect with Parul Sinha via zoom.
