Never failing to surprise and draw your curious attention to the finest art work done at GVK. Transiting Mumbai airport is more of an art exploration for art lovers and if you have ample time in hand, then you would take alot back.
While walking towards the immigration from arrivals the moving pillars caught my attention, a closer look to it and Voila!!! its recycled bottle crowns doing the trick.
Let me give you a little more insight on what exactly it is:
SHARMILA SAMANT (HEPTAD THE 7TH)
The moving seven pillars (7 number) is an auspicious number, it is also the number of the islands that formed Mumbai. Namely, Isle of Bombay, Colaba, Old Woman’s Island (Little Colaba), Mahim, Mazagaon, Parel and Worli. The artist has used discarded bottle crowns creating kinetic pillars that represent the vahanas of the seven mother goddess.
Along side you spot an aerial map of Mumbai’s terrain articulated with E-waste and buttons. It depicts the diversity of the city’s built forms, buildings, roadways, watercourses, parks and industries.
The Jaya He- GVK Museum extraordinary artwork, will leave all travelers touched with the Indian art and fascination to explore more.
