Sharmila Samant – Mrigjal - The Mirage, 2011

Mrigjal – The Mirage’ relates to questions of identity, memory and civic issues through the politics of water. With Amar Joshi, a water diviner and geologist, Samant located water bodies that lie under the city. It interrogated the unequal distribution in the city while marking two contrasted sites: the elite area of Kala Ghoda and the disadvantaged slum area, Annabhau Sathe Nagar. To mark these sites, a triangular sign bearing graphic imprints of water and a bore-well were implanted. Samant made smaller replicas of the public installations through which funds were raised and donated to the NGO Ghar Banao Ghar Bachao Andolan which coordinated the building of four new wells in Annabhau Sathe Nagar for daily usage.






Dear partners, supporters, friends and lovers,

due to the COVID-19 Virus our little ETF! office in Berlin remains closed and we are working from home.

As many fellow artists, creatives and freelancers this Corona crisis has hit us hard.
We had hoped to send out a newsletter this spring informing you all about our 19th venue in Lisbon, which was supposed to open in Carpintarias São Lázaro on the 19th of June 2020.
Now, with all the cancellations and the shut down of cultural life we hope to postpone and for EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! to still be part of the program of Lisboa Green Capital 2020.
We will keep you posted.

Keep safe.
