Clark House Bombay
Minutes of the meeting is a documentation of my travels from Jakarta to New Guinea, looking at Birds of Paradise as more than just an exotic curio that adorned the Cabinets of Curiosities across Europe. The drawings and short films trace the ebb and flow of ecological destruction surrounding the species in the South-East Asian and Western Pacific region.
Starting from the min 16th-century trade of exotic fauna, to being the epicentre of Dutch colonial rule in the 18th century, to today’s palm oil crisis - the birds and animals of the region have been major players in world history. Their unwitting entanglement ranged from their contribution to the spirit of scientific inquiry, right upto today’s insatiable need for food products processed with palm oil. This fascinating and tragic entanglement, often underrepresented, is the story I am sharing from 09th Feb - 08th March 2017 at Clark House Initiative. Do come!
