Paris-Delhi-Bombay could stand for the destinations of my planned trip for the next months… but it is also the title of the Current exhibition in Centre Pompidou, Paris
Different artists, either French or Indian contributed to this exhibition. Their works of Art express what they think or what they perceive about India today.
My favorite piece is the one from Hema UPADHYAY: Think Left, Think Right, Think Low, Think Tight, 2010
It is a colorful representation of the largest slum of Mumbai called Dharavi. Have a look at the pictures and try to imagine a tight corridor. On both side of it, vertically and miniature, full of colors, a reproduction of the slum thanks to recycled materials. It is amazing to pay attention to the details like places of worship or electrical systems!
If you happen to be in Paris anytime from now until the 19th of September 2011, do not hesitate to visit the Centre Pompidou!
