We are delighted to invite you to NANPUR EXPERIENCE, an event to mark the launching of a publication by Meera Shakti Osborne, resulting from the Village Letters exhibition’s public programme. This publication is a collaborative effort between artists Meera Shakti Osborne and Prafulla Mohanti. It showcases the artworks by workshop participants, including students from Paddington Academy and Millbank Academy.
As part of the programme, Meera Shakti Osborne took the lead in conducting an engaging series of workshops. These workshops offered an invitation to students, encouraging them to delve into the realm of ‘village culture’ and give voice to their ideas through the creation of a zine. Throughout the sessions, students embarked on a transformative journey of the mind, channelling their imagination to envision and map out their very own villages.
In December 2022, Meera travelled to Nanpur, the cherished village of Prafulla Mohanti in India. It was there that Meera sought inspiration, weaving their artistic practices to produce captivating new works that found their rightful place within the forthcoming publication. This artistic endeavour served as a testament to the deep connection between artist and place, breathing life into the pages with each stroke of creativity.
The NANPUR EXPERIENCE is an opportunity to unveil and celebrate the publication and we are looking forward to welcoming students and educators, alongside iniva’s community. Alongside the publication, artworks made by students and a film made by Meera will be displayed.
