Back to Bombay & back to work☺️
This was our lunch yesterday afternoon at the Ananata Vasudeva Temple. At the temple they create an Odia Bhog called Abhada which means a self-served meal eaten from small earthen pots. They cook food in small and large sized earthen pots which you eat from directly and break after you are done eating. Every single day a new pot is used to cook and then broken after. They create over 56 types of local food dishes (including dals, bhaji’s, rice & sweet) and serve it to the deity first before serving it to people. Huge quantities of the food dishes are prepared using seasonal and locally sourced vegetables every single day🥗 .
Such a wonderful time in Odisha, we explored SO much of Odia food and the rich culture. Thank you for having us @odishatourismofficial, we had a wonderful time learning so much about the history of the place and meeting such lovely people☺️ .
Presenting our #BAT2018 artist Subrat Kumar Behera's 'On Cultures Through Collecting, Watercolour, Lithograph and Charcoal, 2018. ' for #BAT2018.
I take inspiration from various religious tales, mythological stories, folk tales, and day to day news. The aim of my work is to look at how the process of storytelling works. What the narrator of the story wants to say? What does the narrator not say? What kind of techniques can be used to evoke the various rasas in the viewer's mind?
For this work I am collecting stories of people from around this place. These oral histories have inspired me to incorporate mokulito technique as a part of my work. What stood out in these stories was the idea of how any culture, people, or object as a life cycle – it is conceived, born, exists and eventually dies. The title inspired by James Still’s essay On Collecting Art and Culture too helps express the convoluted understanding of value through the notion of permanence and preservation attached to it. --Subrat Kumar Behera
