2019 A voice to a voice

IPEP India 2019 A voice to voice – Catalogue .pdf, 2.5MB

A voice to a voice and a word to a word spring into a dialogue. The voice might not be audible, or the word may remain unwritten. But the dialogue goes on. While the perpetual inner dialogue leads to an outer one and connects individuals, it is soliloquy that guides us to a journey within and listens to the thoughts reverberating inside.

Dialogue creates a space for diverse ideas, beliefs, emotions, desires and memories to be articulated and shared with others. The reciprocal process not only involves individuals but communities, cultures, places, and more inclusively non-living beings. There is a voice within us that engages the mind in self-questioning, ignites more in-depth queries and leads to the answers to our questions, doubts and confusions. A journey, introspective enough, can be a potent impetus for spiritual and artistic expressions. Art can simultaneously voice against injustice, immorality and viciousness, reflecting the artist’s concern for collective welfare. A dialogue can also emerge then, not only between the piece of art and its audience but engaging the thinking minds to reach a feasible solution of it.

The forthcoming edition of IPEP India 2019 calls for submissions that invite the viewer to respond to this melange of voices and create an unending trail of dialogue between them.
