'Our Land: Regenerating from Ashes to Ashes' depicts the Warlis' deep faith in the cycle of life. All living creatures must die and return to the soil, to become the life-giving earth itself. Warli families demarcate sacred spaces on their own land for cremation, and the ashes are offered back to their farmland.
ARTISANS’ presents the first ever exhibition in Mumbai of the brothers Mayur (29) and Tushar (38) Vayeda, internationally celebrated artists from the indigenous Warli community in western India.
In Regeneration the Vayedas seek to reconnect with their ancestors; to reclaim and reconstruct their ancient legacy for a new generation; and to transform their collective lives. This call for regeneration is inspired by natural and indigenous systems that heal and restore damaged ecosystems.
In this series, the Vayeda brothers adapt their inherited style of painting to communicate. While they strive to preserve the basic grammar of its style and remain deeply connected to its origins, their concepts go far beyond, to address universal concerns. In the process they move their tradition forward, towards the vanguard of contemporary Warli art.
