Safarnama: Journeys through a Kalamkari Hanging" A Photographic Exhibition
8th to 21st April 2013 | From 10.00 am to 5 pm at the Ajanta Hall 1st floor
'Safar-Nama: Journeys Through A Kalamkari Hanging" exhibition explores a unique textile that represents the formation of European taste in relation to demand for Indian textiles. This early 17th century piece is painted in the kalamkari tradition where kalam (pen made of bamboo) is used for painting the fabric.
This hanging is full of flora and fauna which reveal layers of memory associated with the symbolism and cultural ethos of different geographical areas. The hanging is a masterpiece-a virtual template, drawing on the diverse elements which had contributed to the making of the mature chintz design. It is also a pointer to further enrichment deriving inspiration from artistic features of Persian, Thai, Chinese, Japanese and Malay manifestations while there is affinity with paintings of the Tilism category found in the Mughal, Persian and Deccani schools.
This piece is housed in the French city of Mulhouse at the Musée de l'impression sur étoffes de Mulhouse, (the Museum of Printed Textiles, Mulhouse, France). Considering the delicate nature of the artefact this exhibition is based not on the fabric, but on high resolution digital prints. These detailed images show the cultural and artistic complexity that makes this hanging an extremely unique and valuable artefact.
