Sindhupare: A Mixed-Media Art Exhibition starts Today

Sindhupare is a Bengali word that literally means “beside the sea“. The name has been derived from the famous poem Sindhupare by ‘Thakur’ Rabindra Nath Tagore. It is a Mixed-Media Art Exhibition. This Tagore Art Installation Project
 is to be held at Udaipur, Jodhpur, Kolkata, Jaipur, and Mumbai. The Udaipur based theatre company ‘Out of Cocoon’ is opening this mixed-media art exhibition under the creative direction of Jarka Heller (UK) and Anne Visboel (Denmark). The event is supported by West Zone Cultural Centre (WZCC), as part of the Indian Government’s Tagore Commemoration Grant Scheme (TCGS). The Inaugural event is to be held at Sculpture Korte, 125-A Ambamata Scheme, opp. Aurvedic College, Udaipur today, and the free event will run from 5 – 13 February 2012, daily at 6-9 p.m.


The Tagore poem ‘Sindhupare’ (Beside the Sea) is used as the inspiration for artistic creations from international sculptors, artists, actors and composers. Their creative works have been integrated into a ‘life journey’ following the path of the poem. Visitors will be introduced to Sindhupare through exhibits that touch all five human senses, allowing them to experience the depth and beauty of this profound example of Tagore’s work.

Therefore, the art lovers and Tagore fans should not miss this opportunity to visit the exhibition.
