Installation of the “Pineapple” Sculpture has begun
Installation has begun on the "Pineapple" - One of six exciting new sculptures for 2019 by Subodh Kerkar - the Founding Director of the Museum of Goa (MOG), who has exhibited widely in India and abroad in both galleries and museums.
Subodh Kerkar was born in a small picturesque village of Keri on the northern border of Goa. He spent his childhood, walking on the beaches with his artist father, Chandrakant Kerkar. These walks consolidated his relationship with his father and with the ocean.
Subodh Kerkar’s installations are heavily washed by the ocean, both literally and metaphorically. He creates his ephemeral installations using thousands of mussel shells, pebbles, palm leaves, boats, fishermen and sand.
The ocean is both inside and outside his works, his master and his muse. Subodh creates large works on the seashore, which are often infused with politics and history. For the Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park Subodh is fusing this with the landscape in one of his pieces named "The Ocean comes to Yorkshire".
