Abstract or Description

Sandarbh Artist Residency.

Laura White participated in this residency. 2009.
She was one of 13 international artists working in location together over 2 weeks. Each artist developed a separate project.

Participating artists included:
Ivan Smith UK, Laura White UK, Francis Gomila UK/GER, Lata Upadhyaya UK/IND, Istvan Eross HUN, Chintan Upadhyay IND, Liu Po-Chun TW, Tsai Kung-Lin TW, Dong-Hun Sung KR, Alvaro Verduzcos MEX, Abby Manock US, Anke Mellin, GER.

Concept of Residency:
Sandarbh, a rural participatory workshop was started in India six years ago (originally envisaged by noted artist Chintan Upadhyay) with a single goal in mind to bring artists together in a rural place and create a bridge between the urban and rural populace. Especially in the context of India where there is a stark contrast in exposure and education between the rural and urban population. Can Art work as a bridge? Can participation and collaboration by local population with the artists create some sort of opportunity, through which both artists and local populace learn something new? With Art acting only in the circles of white cube and limited circle of gallery goers, Sandarbh aimed at making art a part of the everyday life of people and bring it to their neighbourhood.
