BN Goswamy: Between the Conception and the Creation

posted in: Event Reports | 0

Between the conception and the creation indeed: a shadow. But, between the lines, and beyond the lines, and below those lines, this simple note left by Eliot: life is very long. Besides the spotlight, the words and the delivery, this is perhaps what transpired from BN Goswamy’s Ramkinkar Baij Memorial Lecture: a deep, sensual, intimate relation with the very long story of life, and of all its creations. When centuries-old artworks return, to greet and celebrate the legacy of the most influential sculptor of an era, one voice is needed: the historian, forerunner in astonishment, mediating through the thousands of our past, opening a few doors to the attentive audience.
