The degree students of Fashion Design at LISAA were accompanied by faculty to witness the Urban Fabric exhibition at Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath on 18th March. The exhibition included a melange of installations by artists from far and wide. Amongst them, a few installations and displays are worthy of being mentioned here.
We entered the space with what we witnessed was large wall hangings with intricate embroidery done by the Siddi community in Bangalore. This was followed by a unique display of handwoven saris inspired by the earth and night sky all brought to life by local weavers in villages afar. We also stumbled upon the nighty revolution in India and how iconic this item of clothing is to women across India. Not to mention, some intriguing rust dying techniques displayed alongside crochet-like techniques.
Furthermore, our very own faculty member, Umesh, displayed some of his work, emphasizing the tailoring community and stirring a surrealist approach to the tailor’s timeless tools, like the tailor’s chalk, measuring tape, and fabric cutting scissors. It was an eye-opening experience for our students to see artists and designers approach creating these one-of-a-kind displays with a narrative in mind.
