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

The Seventh Walk

Synopsis:

A painter wandering through a forest sees a mysterious footprint and hears the strains of music, which leads him deeper into nature in pursuit of its source, hoping that it might lead to his innermost seeking. As he wanders, he rests under a tree; in his sleep he sees himself walking, painting, stones defying gravity, a small girl taking the sky-route to deliver his daily fruit and milk, seasons changing and years passing. He wakes up and walks into the landscape made-up of his own paintings where the object of his quest might await him.

Director's Note:

In 2010, I engaged with the landscape of the Kangra valley when making 'Nainsukh', which was based on the art of an 18th century master painter, whose paintings were figurative and came from a long family tradition. This film engages with the same landscape, replica longines watches but as seen through the works of a contemporary Indian artist, who paints in the modern western tradition of oil on canvas. His landscapes are abstract and open for the free play of imagination; they seek beauty in the unspectacular and are filled with meticulous layers of minute pigment-strokes like nature itself in its untiring fecundity. As a filmmaker based in this area, this became a fascinating study for me to engage with two painters who painted in the same region separated by a span of almost three centuries. Also, as pure landscapes, simultaneously observed and imagined by the artist, Paramjit Singh's paintings were open to the evocation of a diversity of associations, both eastern and western, classical and folk; for instance both Kalidasa and local myths and legends, and even Haiku or 'Alice in Wonderland'.

Exhibitions:

Rome Film Festival (closing film);  Rotterdam Film Festival;  Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York

About Paramjit Singh

Some contemporary Indian painters have found landscape painting as a genre suitable for expressing the esoteric and the outer. For them the phenomenal world hides something more than what is immediately perceived. Paramjit Singh's hills and woodlands carry the luminous memory of a transcendental presence. 

Born in 1935 in Amritsar, Paramjit Singh had his art education in the School of Arts, Delhi Polytechnic (1953-58). He was the founder member of 'The Unknown', a group of young painters and sculptors based in Delhi.

Paramjit landscapes, with their loaded silence evocative of the other worldly, became over the years, a distinct mystical utterance in pictorial terms. The esoteric in his landscapes was perhaps young Paramjit's response to the mystery in tensions between the deep pictorial space and the sharp shadows of inanimate objects in the picture metafisica, a short-lived school in modem Italian art, and to the later Surrealist paintings. All these were transformed over about two decades into a personal statement in Paramjit's paintings.

From around the late 80s, Paramjit's landscapes and his techniques changed radically. The Italian picture metafisica with their sharp shadows and melting tones receded into oblivion, and there emerged lush Indian landscapes with a mystical vision of a transcendental presence.

Suresh Chabria: Biographical Note

Suresh Chabria taught Political Science at St. Xavier's College, Mumbai, before joining the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune, as Professor of Film Appreciation. He was Director of the National Film Archive of India, during which period he initiated several restorations and programming events showcasing Indian film heritage. He has published several articles on cinema replica breitling watches and a book, Light of Asia: Indian Silent Cinema 1912-1934, that is perhaps the most authoritative publication on the subject.  The book has recently come out in a revised and expanded edition.  Associated with the Film Society movement for more than three decades, Chabria is perhaps best known as a teacher and his short courses and workshops on film appreciation are much sought after. After retirement, he continues working as a teacher, curator and film historian.
