Resonance by Michel Nicolet
The exhibition Resonance by Michel Nicolet is open for other four Sundays at Petite Ferme, Auroville. The sculptor Michel Nicolet is showing us a remarkable set of objects. One could say that his presentation consists of three parts: his words, his drawings and his sculpture. The drawings, being two dimensional, appear to be a study towards a special kind of three dimensionality. In the interview (in French) Michel tells us about his life paths and connections, which draw him to Auroville and, through cymatics, to this exhibition. Read more

Ceramics Exhibition in Pitanga
Priya Sundaravalli from Tamil Nadu is currently having an exhibition in Pitanga. Over 300 ceramic objects, which are all very unique, can be visited until the 24th of March. Her art is quite unusual and the thin shapes of her creations make the items look fragile. Instead of thinking and planning her work, she is trying to let her inspiration flow freely and allows herself to do whatever is coming up. If items crack she repairs them with a Japanese technique: 'Nothing is a defect, accidents are seen as part of what is supposed to happen.' Read more
