A door to creativity

Emerging as a popular hub for art and culture, Bengaluru has found a special place in every art lover's heart. Keeping this in mind, 'Bengaluru Fantastic', a 'Tech-Arts Festival' was launched recently at the Rangoli - Metro Art Center, MG Road.

The event envisages a positive, sustainable future leveraging creative tech in open city spaces. The organisers envision this as a biennial event in the city. German artists and former bangaloREsidents Jérôme Chazeix, Thomas Heidtmann and Felizitas Stilleke were among those who exhibited their works.  

Sofy Yuditskaya  has collaborated with Ria Rajan for 'Spectra', a multimedia work. Sofy says, "This place is charming and fun. People of Bengaluru are very enthusiastic about art. The best thing is that there is space for a lot of different interpretation. Our work centres mostly around installations,  performances, live drawing and projection art. We would like many people to come and participate in our performances. I don't have any expectations as of now. Let's hope for the best."    

Ria pitches in, "I am hoping that people come out and experience all the installations and performances. I am personally excited to see people of all age groups coming in for the festival."  

This interactive festival see many international and local artists showcasing their exquisite works. It will also see curation of digital art installations, interactive projections, workshops, panels and electric unicycle dance performances.  

Marguerite Courtel and Erica Johnson of 'Art of change 21' showcased their project 'Mask book' at the event. Talking more about it Marguerite says, "We aim to merge the universe of art, environment, entrepreneurship and innovation.  ."

Highlighting more on 'Mask book', Erica adds, "Our work aims to raise awareness about air pollution and climate change. We work with dust masks and through DIY workshops, the participants transform the symbol of pollution into a means of expression and a symbol for a solution."
