Patchwork Stories

Created and curated by Thotpot, a creative platform of like-minded artistes, a new exhibition called Everything is Connected that opened over the weekend attempts to bridge nature and human senses. The display will try to connect the five elements of nature with human senses of perception, said architect Tapan Deshpande, who has conceptualised the exhibition. “The show encapsulates our journey over the past decade. We have been working with Indian concepts and receding aspects of local cultures. Our core label, 108 per cent Indian, works on the diversity of the country to devise more efficient tools for ideation or problem-solving. Our other arm, The Quilting House, empowers women from the grassroots to become artists,” Deshpande elaborated. She added that both of these initiatives will be represented at the display — while the former will bring home the essence of one’s cultural identity, the latter, through quilts of colours, stitches and fragmented forms, will talk of daily negotiations, tactile experiences and the small emotional wins in a city life. The exhibition in Colaba Arts at the historic BDD Chawl in Worli will continue till June 16.
