To browsers worldwide, "a Showkase"
'a Showkase' aims to be both an exhibition space and a cybershoppe.
Starting with these works of Mala Mukerjee, internetindia hopes to promote the culture and creativity of this great nation by featuring photographers, painters, sculptors, writers, film makers, manufacturers of traditional handicrafts, etc. and their projects.
The works currently on display were conceived after a visit to the 18th Century observatory in the heart of New Delhi. The mystery of the myriad forms at Jantar Mantar lured Mala to visit Jaipur in Rajasthan, Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh, and Benaras in Uttar Pradesh, where three other architectural marvels built by the same astronomer King Sawai Jaisingh, still survive.
Mala has been working on this subject since 1990, and continues to do so even today. Part of her entire collection was first shown in a Solo exhibition in London in 1992 and then in Oxford in 1993, followed by Solo shows in Bangalore and Bombay in 1994 and in Madras and Calcutta in 1995. The exhibit will travel to New Delhi later this year.
We hope to bring to you a truly varied and enriching experience.
