The Body in Indian Art’ curated by Prof. Naman P. Ahuja was inaugurated by the President of India at the ICCR/ Europalia International Arts Festival at the Palais de Beaux-Arts, Brussels in October, 2013. This landmark exhibition of over 350 objects was sourced from 55 lenders from India and abroad. Later, in 2014 this exhibition was shown at the National Museum of India in New Delhi where it achieved record-breaking public acclaim.

Selected highlights from this extensive documentation have been made into eight films. Each of these films is just under 30 minutes and showcases a gallery per film. Each episode introduces a variety of Indian aesthetic meditations on the role of art and representation.

Exhibition on Kantha Embroidery

The Kantha is a special and beautiful art form developed mainly by the women of Bengal with great passion and love. The Kanthas are infact quilts prepared by layers of old cotton sarees joined together by darn stitches. The threads are drawn across the layers so close to one another that the entire field appears to be rippled. Once the field is prepared the coloured threads are taken out from the borders of the sarees for embroidering the field. The designs of embroidery are symbolic in character and have a close affinity to the alpana. The central design is usually a lotus with variable number of petals interspersed with diverse patterns. The most recurrent designs are tree of life, animals, birds, fish, mythological figures, boats, chariots kalkas etc. which are conventional and freely balanced.

Thang-Ta - Martial Art of Manipur THANG-TA (IGNCA’S INTANGIBLE HERITAGE SERIES) by Shri Aribam Syam Sharma, Duration: 25 minutes 24 seconds

Manipuri martial art is called Thang-Ta (sword and spear). It is dedicated to fighting skill and worship. The Meitei creation of Thang-Ta goes back to antiquity. Ashiba was asked to create the Universe by his father Atngkok Shitaba. The movement and pattern of creation, ritualistically known as Thengou, was revealed in human movement patterns of Thang-Ta. Today Thang-Ta has passed into oblivion, and survives in isolation. The film traces elements of this art against the blend of martial and spiritual elements in the psyche of the Manipuri people.
