It's Theyyam time, again …

You can view Theyyam from different dimensions, such as, art, folklore, culture, myth etc;

But, one thing most of us fail to see is the human endurance perspective.

To me, Theyyam is one of the ‘Physically most demanding’ ritualistic folk art.

I felt it again, last day, when I watched a Theyyam named ‘Ilamkolam’ performed near my home.

Kochi Muziris Biennale 2018

Kochi Muziris Biennale is the biggest contemporary art festival in Asia and I am always overwhelmed with the scale, number and quality of the installations.

Let me share a few images, I managed to capture during my quick last day visit to the venue.

I don’t think, I can make any comment on the art work here, but, this is something to experience, not like the way I have done it, but taking time, at least a couple of days 🙂

Waiting for the next edition in 2020…
