What we call modern art really begins with Paul Cézanne. The radical inventions of this painter from Aix-en-Provence were taken up by Van Gogh and Gauguin who, each in his own manner, further developed new ways of painting and laid the groundwork for Picasso, Matisse and Bonnard. 

Van Gogh - "The High Yellow Note"

In 1888, Van Gogh painted his bedroom. This image, which has been reproduced so many times that it is famous, meant much to the painter. The painting is intentionally simple, and yet the overall effect is quite strange: objects seem to retreat and space is distorted. Some critics have used the painting to support their theory that Van Gogh was mad. Yet, what if the painter were sane, and it is space that is mad?

Gauguin - "Wild Harmonies"

To attain his "tone poetry", Gauguin travelled a lot in Brittany, Panama and Martinique, "lands of primitive freedom". Always searching for people who were not yet "spoiled by progress" and who were imbued with an "archaic spirituality", he gave the world his best paintings while in Polynesia. The workArearea ("Joyousness") was painted during his first stay in Tahiti.

Cézanne - "The Violence of the Motif" 

Born in Aix-en-Provence, Cézanne returned there after a few trips elsewhere. He turned Mount Sainte-Victoire, a landscape much appreciated by local painters, into his own motif. He depicted the mountain more than sixty times in different styles and in every season. In this film, Alain Jaubert explores Cézanne's strange stubborn desire to represent the same landscape over and over.

Film Screening: From Duchamp to Pop Art

 

Under the film screening programme

Chandigarh Lalit Kala Akademi

in collaboration with

Alliance Française Le Corbusier de Chandigarh

cordially invites you to the screening of the film

From Duchamp to Pop Art

3 movies of 30 minutes each

Directed by : Alain Jaubert

on Sunday 20th April 2014  at 5.00 pm

at the Auditorium, Government Museum & Art Gallery

Sector 10 C, Chandigarh

Producers : ARTE FRANCE, PALETTE PRODUCTION, DELTA IMAGE

The films are being screened for educational purposes

Movie 1 : MARCEL DUCHAMP : "Nu descendant un escalier"

Marcel Duchamp's "Nude Descending a Staircase" (1913), is, with Picasso's "Demoiselles d'Avignon" an essential step in the twentieth century artistic revolution. But inspite of its worldwide reputation, the painting has never been commented in-depth. If we put aside the title, what exactly does the painting represent? To what extent is it possible to analyse the work and dissect its symbolism?

 

Movie 2 : YVES KLEIN : "Anthropométrie de l'époque bleue"

The blue period, blue traces, blue sponges... Yves Klein certainly deserved his nickname of "Yves the monochrome." Eventhough he used other colors, blue was his favorite, and, more than a means of expression, blue became a source of spiritual energy. This programme in the Palette series explores his universe, the use of the blue color, the use of differing and original techniques (Klein used, for example, his models as actual "living" brushes!).

 

Movie 3 : ANDY WARHOL : "Ten Lizes"

Why are we so fascinated by Warhol's images? This new unreleased programme in the series "Palettes" analyses a huge picture with a secret history and surprising implications. Ten identical faces printed in black, in two rows, on a canvas 5.65 metres long and 2 metres high. But are the faces really identical? Not quite: the observer gradually notices a myriad small differences, like the variations you get in replicas cast from the same mould. Andy Warhol (Pittsburgh, 1928-New York, 1987) created this image in 1963 from a photo of the star and repeated it ten times using silk-screen printing techniques. Why did he choose this face? Why did he repeat it?

The Palette Collection brings together a series of films by Alain Jaubert exploring a selection of major works from various periods in the history of painting. Thanks to the latest techniques in video animation, the secrets of the paintings are revealed and discovering art becomes an enjoyable adventure

Jagannath Panda was born in Bhubaneswar in 1970 and received his BFA in sculpture from the BK College of Arts & Crafts, Bhubaneswar in 1991 replica breitling watches and MFA in sculpture from the MS University, Baroda in 1994. Subsequent studies took him to the Fukuoka University of Japan and the Royal College of Art in London, where he received an MA degree in sculpture in 2002. His art  appeared at Nature Morte in New Delhi and Berlin, Chemould Prescott Road in Mumbai, and Alexia Goethe Gallery in London. Group exhibitions include Indian Highway IV at the Lyons Museum of Contemporary Art, France, Indian Highway V  at the MAXXI Museum in Rome, Transformation at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Chalo! India at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Where in the World at the Devi Art Foundation in Gurgaon, Midnight's Children at Studio la Citta in Verona, Italy, Re Writing Landscape CHINA/INDIA, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA), Seoul. No-Mad-Ness in No Man's Land, Eslite Gallery, Taiwan and DAIRY Island, Dairy Art Centre, London,  among many others. His art can be found in the collections of the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi; the Asian Art Museum, Fukuoka, Japan; and the Devi Foundation, New Delhi.

Panda is known for creating images that are deceptively simple. Often, his works consist of light, linear drawings and melting of liquid shapes placed on the surface. At the same time, the works also reflect conflicts between ecology and development, nature and technology.

Panda's works are often inspired by his immediate surroundings: Orissa, his native state, and his current home in chaotically urban New Delhi. For example, he mixes the traditional palm leaf drawings of Orissa with architectural motifs showing multinational enterprises replica cartier watches and call-centres from New Delhi, illustrating the paradoxical co-existence of different worlds while also highlighting how the success of the business community is creating palpable change within Indian society.

Through his art, Panda brings together many binary opposites, juxtaposing nature and culture, the urban and the rural, tradition and innovation, and the figurative and the abstract. In his works he brings together these opposing scenarios to form a coherent whole through deft colour treatment and a personal aesthetic sensibility.

Animal life also plays an important part in the artist's circle of motifs. Animals represent people, gods, or the cycle of life. The work God and Goat from 2007 casts a goat as the main protagonist. The goat is a symbol for sacrifices to the gods, but in some cases it can also be an avatar of the god Prakriti. In Hinduism, Prakriti represents Mother Nature, and it may be in order to accentuate this symbolism that Panda has an umbilical cord, terminating in a red cloth ball, emanating from the goat's belly. The goat is also decked out in a range of patterns reminiscent of embroidery and painted in red, black and white colours. These colours can represent the three spiritual qualities: 'Sattva', goodness and happiness; 'Rajaher', passion and movement; and finally 'Tamas': darkness and ignorance.

Panda's staging of the goat reclining on a pewter box is a testament to an enchanted universe where modern-day rationality locks horns with religion and fantasy. India's contrasts between past and present are powerfully expressed in the artist's work.

He lives and works in Gurgaon, Haryana, India
