PERFORMANCE ART WORKSHOP - Inder Salim
Artist Inder Salim was invited to conduct the first performance art workshop at KNMA, Saket. The workshop was an experiment with live art, presented in the context of artworks displayed in the museum. Participants included students from Delhi College of Art, Delhi University, Kurukshetra University, advertising professionals and emerging artists.
The whole process of the workshop allowed artists / college students to improvise and inhabit the space in their own ways. Small yet vital changes occurred in the museum space in real time during the process of this workshop. Performances by the participants were unpredictable, often expressing rebellious acts and sudden disruptions to the museum-structure itself. All these acts can be read like a conquering of the space, producing moments of reflection, rupture and reckoning.
