Über die Veranstaltung

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.

The kantha 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 kantha, its social importance, shared knowledge, and the question of preservation of this unique technique.


Parul Sinha is a visual artist, graduated in painting from the College of Art Delhi in 2016. She has been part of a book publishing in mini-majelis Documenta Fifteen. Her solo show was held at Metta Contemporary in Navi Mumbai in 2018. She has also been part of the group show in Clark House Initiative in Mumbai in 2017 and Gallery Latitude 28. Parul´s work often deals with the banality of daily life and is primarily concerned with the existence of objects within it. She often isolates and repeats the forms to make them a recurrent motif in her drawings, questioning the nature of the image itself. The incessant reproduction of this rather mundane object is intended to highlight their structural patterning and performative composition. Recently, she has started research on weaving techniques and women communities in East India, especially the work of kantha. Her research is focused as well in the aspects of preventing the heritage, the transmission of knowledge and investigating the position of craft practices in art.
