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.

We mourn our friend and benefactor, the artist and philosopher Prince Rudolf zur Lippe, who died on 6 September 2019.

He made thoughts dance and people move.

During the exhibition in Erfurt, which shows works from the cycle "Learning from the Birds" in the church of the Augustinian monastery, he wanted to talk to us about it and how it is linked to Goethe and Alexander von Humboldt.

We will miss him greatly, not only there.
