After Paris and before Québec, Trimukhi Platform launches in Kolkata a yearly publication on contemporary arts practices. In 196 pages first issue: texts and digital works by 21 artists and scholars from India, France, Spain, England, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal, Mexico, Colombia, Argentine, Ecuador and Canada. The purpose is concrete, simple: stimulating the thought, awakening desire for the arts.
With Jean-Frédéric Chevallier (co-editor of the yearly publication), Samantak Das (professor of comparative literature, JU), Nilanjana Gupta (professor of English literature, JU), Chittrovanu Mazumdar (visual artist), Madhuja Mukerjee (graphic novel writer) and Gaston Roberge (specialist of Indian cinema).
Words of introduction by Damien Syed, Consul General of France in Kolkata.
The presentation will start with a short video projection on Trimukhi Platform's work in India and conclude with a session of signature as well as a French wine degustation...
The publication Fabrique de l'art, in some respects, resembles our world. It reflects the beauty across its planetary stretch, from west to east, from North and South America to Asia. We can feel its vibration of multiplicity and difference. Of course, it makes no claim to offer a portrait of the globe [...]. But it is a unique enterprise, through the plurality it summons, and also as a singularised and not eclectic plurality, given that a very firm viewpoint underpins and supports it.
Denis Guénoun (philosopher and theatre director), Paris, 20th June 2016
