The Kochi Muziris Biennale, started in 2010 by Bose Krishnamachari and Riyaz Komu, is an international exhibition of contemporary art. Held across various venues in Kochi and the surrounding islands in Kerala, the exhibition aims at bringing together art and artists and showcasing works across various media such as film, painting, sculpture and performance art.
During my first visit to the Biennale during January 2017, I took the opportunity of experiencing the exhibits and the city more through a photographic perspective and documented the vibe of the exhibition along with the city and spaces that play host.
While this article is long overdue, I believe the way the exhibitions are conducted and spread across fully functioning cities make them more interesting than the artwork itself.
While I can only add a few photographs to this piece, you can go through the entire set here.
