i wish there was time to really develop this beyond the intermittent observation- displaced domesticities - this time the tyre guy near avon whose shop is separated from the home with a plastic curtain.
what can you say about the perpetual reconstruction happening along any road in the city that has not been said before? but no matter how many times you see it, it still takes your breath away. spectacular ruin.
more than two years after the preview show at the berlinale in 2010, cinema city now opened at the ngma on saturday. the response was beyond all that we expected. over 600 people thronging the unusual spaces of the ngma- and everything looked very good. on the ground floor the large table of miscellany with 'cinema city lived' and the 'atlas' along with other paraphernalia; apurva's interactive censorship toy, kausik's bioscope and the beginning of the calendar project. the first floor has pushpamala's second version of the phantom lady along with the first of paro's telephone sound installation; the next floor is made of atuls journey from ghatkopar to cst every day of art school in the form of station signs with villains on them along with paro's phone booth. then it is anant joshi's mad whirling toyscape skyline. on the landings some more calendars and paro's third pco. The dome is gorgeous right now with the enormous pipeline by the design cell looking stunning, shreyas' strange objects from a possible future cinema city and archana's playful back projection bicycle.
