Esplanade Theatre, Singapore has commissioned
to curate a a series of Tribal Textile Artworks.
These will be on display
from Nov 23 – Dec 2, 2012
on the main facades of the hallway, the cones above the tunnel and the Library at the Esplanade
Textile Art Installation #1
“Mirrors of Identity”
The two large panels, each measuring
6m x 2m
have been created using
Vintage ‘Dhaniyo’ traditional textiles
of the Yaduvanshi Ahir tribe from Kutch.
It is estimated that this artwork required 720 man-days (of 8 dedicated hours each) to embroider, 70 man-days to hunt out 12 matching pieces from over 25 villages in Kutch and 30 man-days for assembly – altogether an effort of 820 man-days.
Textile Art Installation #2
Three large lanterns, each of a different color of celebration have been created
using Bandhani tie-dye saris from Rajasthan. Each lantern is made up of 12 saris.
Installation # 3
7 traditionally woven saris decorate the National Library @ the Esplanade
Photos of the artworks will be put up in December.
