Reimagining Gandhi: An Artist’s Vision

Reimagining Gandhi is an attempt to engage with the Gandhian thought through various forms of artistic expressions. Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings of truth, non-violence and compassion are eternal and need to be imbibed in every individual. Gandhi’s teachings have inspired not just political figures like Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama, but also scientists like Albert Einstein and business leaders such as Steve Jobs.

Subodh Kerkar 

Subodh Kerkar was born in Keri, on the northern border of Goa in 1959. He spent his childhood walking on the beaches with his artist father, Chandrakant Kerkar, where he became drawn to the ocean in his works. Subodh creates his ephemeral installations using thousands of mussel shells, pebbles, palm leaves, boats, fishermen, and sand. His large works on the seashore are often infused with politics and history.

Subodh is the Founding Director of the Museum of Goa (MOG) and has exhibited widely in India and abroad.
