Himalayan Hamlet’s Art amidst Nature

himachal-pradesh-shopart-artshop

A quaint spot in Himalayas, secluded from the hustle and bustle of urbanisation, puts up a display of Art works, with nature as the gallery. This is not fiction, this happens once in three years at Gunehar, Himachal Pradesh, where an artist residency, displays its output in a uniquely engaging manner.

Current edition has Sculptor Mudita Bhandari’s terracotta monuments, photographys by Ratika Singh, acrylic artworks of Neha Lavingia, soundscape of crickets, winds and water streams produced by Nikhil Narendra, Rohini Kejriwal’s e-book project, and Gauri Sharma’s awestruck live installation – all of these presented in the unadulterated lap of nature. The experience has left the viewers and connoisseurs gobsmacked as they indulged intimately within the thoughts of creativity under the shade of Himalayan pines and alpines.

The gallery-less exhibition at Gunehar, Himachal Pradesh is a part of the ‘ShopArt ArtShop‘ art residency program curated by a German-Indian art adorer. Renowned as the paragliding paradise of India, Gunehar is a village located in the midst of Bir and Billing villages and hosts this residency program in every three years. The exhibition gave creations, creativity and creators an opportunity to leave behind the comfort zones of cities and its galleries and to experience the wilderness while reflecting it within their artworks.
