“But the landscape of devastation is still a landscape. There is beauty in ruins.”
― Susan Sontag, Regarding the Pain of Others
Time leaves its marks on the corporeal existence of anything and everything out there. Artist Mansi Trivedi, like a few with similar creative thoughts, finds something profound that is concealed under the visible layers and waits to be discerned. She often adds layers to a material as delicate and translucent as rice paper only to recreate the scars of dilapidation. ‘Attrition’, one of the featured works at Goa Affordable Art Fest (GAAF), creates a melancholic landscape viewed from the top.
Mansi, a Goa-based practising artist, has been part of many group shows with two solo exhibitions to her credit: ‘Before Crashing to Earth’ at Lalit Kala Akademi Gallery, New Delhi (2017) and ‘Ephemeral Gaze’ at Fundação Oriente Art Gallery, Goa (2019). She was invited to several international residency programmes including ‘Fundação Oriente Visual Arts Award’ residency at Casada Cerca – Centro de Arte Contemporânea in Almada, Portugal (2019), International Art Workshop at Olympos, Antalya in Turkey (2015) and Uronto Residential Art Exchange Program, Bangladesh (2014). Mansi studied painting and printmaking in MSU, Baroda.
