Event Description

Mindscapes is an international cultural programme about mental health developed by the Wellcome Trust with an aim to change how we understand, address and talk about mental health by bringing together cultural, policy and research folks. This exhibition, showcasing Mindscapes Bengaluru Artist-In-Residence, Indu Antony’s works, opens on 20th April, 2023 at 3 pm and is spread across three places in Bengaluru, inviting ideas, artworks and people to travel through the city: at the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP); the artist’s studio space Kanike in Cooke town; and Namma Katte, a place for leisure for the women and children of Lingarajapuram. Antony’s work foregrounds questions around language on mental health and the city, care and a shared space for healing in togetherness. With Antony’s work at the centre of the exhibition, it not only raises questions about identity, play, rest and the location of the self but also about the space for emotions, trauma and joy. The exhibition will showcase jointly produced works between Antony with women in Lingarajapuram and Namma Katte, that have evolved out of conversations over the past two years, but that also reflect the artist’s mindspace and identity. Alongside Antony’s work, we see this as an opportunity to share other projects that evolved through the Mindscapes programme. As part of the Mindscapes exhibition, MAP will also showcase the work of Cecilie Falkenstrøm, the Mindscapes international artist in residence, titled “I see it, so you don’t have to”. Art for Thought, a set of mindful learning exercises–developed by the Museum of Art & Photography and UnBox Cultural Futures Society–will also be on display together with Mindscapes artist in residence at large Christine Wong Yap’s co-created zines. Expanding the conversation on mental health, art and language in the exhibition space is a thoughtful film work titled Kāḷaji nagara by Maitri Gopalakrishna and Debosmita Dam. This programme is organised in collaboration with Indu Antony as Artist-in-Residence and Wellcome Trust. It is part of Mindscapes, an international cultural initiative, informed and inspired by Wellcome’s mental health programme.
