 Bharata Muni’s Ashtanayika concept: Dr R Bindu

New Delhi, Nov 20(FASTMAIL) - Dr R Bindu, Kerala  Minister of Higher Education and Social Justice, has said that artist A Ramachandran’s works currently on display at two galleries in the national capital has successfully reimagined the concept of ‘Ashtanayika’ by Bharata Muni by featuring tribal women as its protagonists.

Speaking after visiting the solo show by artist at Shridharani Gallery of Triveni Kala Sangam here  on Saturday, Dr Bindu, who is also in charge of fine arts colleges in the state, said these art works have a politics of their own and can be termed an act of sabotage as it recontextualizes the setting to reflect lives of tribal women.



  Ashta-Nayika is a collective name for eight types of heroines as classified by sage Bharata in his Sanskrit treatise on performing arts.  The paintings also remind one of works by Claude Monet, she said.

Thirteen new paintings  on display in two galleries in the capital gives an insight into how a prolonged Covid-19 lockdown induced phenomenal experimentations in the content and style of the artist.

The exhibition titled ‘Subaltern Nayikas & Lotus Pond’ organized by Vadehra Art Gallery is currently on at two venues -- Triveni Kala Sangam and VAG'S Modern Gallery, Defence Colony, in the national capital. While the show at Shridharani Gallery of Triveni Kala Sangam will end on November 30, the one at VAG Gallery will be on till December 12.
