Blr Creative Circus is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Namita Kulkarni. This series was made as a result of a grant from ICAAD (International Center for Advocates Against Discrimination), a human rights advocacy center in New York. The idea is to make explicit the link between colonialism and the climate crisis. Often framed as simply a matter of reducing carbon emissions, the climate crisis is a result of colonialism, both historical and ongoing. The domination-based, extractive, consumption-centred way of life that is disconnected from any sense of wonder and humility before the infinite workings of the planet. The colonial dimensions and the gravity of the climate crisis are news only to those who have been oblivious to the centuries-long violence of colonization. The series also explores how indigenous wisdom from various cultures can bring us closer to our role as a custodial species on the planet, with a sense of belonging instead of domination. About the artist: Namita Kulkarni is an artist, writer and yoga teacher. She's been painting since childhood and teaching yoga for the last 13 years. She teaches art workshops as well. Her formal education was in law, specialising in intellectual property law.
