New

This pioneering dialogue with 38 extraordinary folk and tribal artists from across India focusses on the idea of a museum — particularly for communities historically regarded as anthropological subjects. In their visual responses, artists reflect on the museum as an institution, and the way it preserves, creates and disseminates knowledge. Do these representations communicate a lived life? What are the artists’ own ways of remembering and passing on tradition? And finally: who has the power to put whom in a museum?

The Boy Who Speaks in Numbers is a darkly satiric account of childhood in times of war. Set in Sri Lanka, the events it narrates could equally happen elsewhere — in all places where human deaths are reduced to numbers and guns do not differentiate between adults and children. Mike Masilamani’s ironic narrative centresaround an unnamed boy, who bears witness to a bizarre and violent time. Matthew Frame’s textured illustrations are a powerful testimony to the horror of prolonged civil strife.

I Saw a Peacock with a Fiery Tail
I Saw a Peacock with a Fiery Tail

A pioneering visual exploration of the seventeenth century trick poem 'I Saw a Peacock with a Fiery Tail' this unique book uses art and design in the service of language.


A well-known folk poem from 17th century England, 'I Saw a Peacock with a Fiery Tail' is a form of trick verse. The poem at first seems nonsensical, but given a break in the middle of each line begins to make perfect sense. In this pioneering visual exploration of I Saw a Peacock, Gond tribal artist Ramsingh Urveti and book designer Jonathan Yamakami use art and design in the service of language. Working together, revealing and concealing, they brilliantly mirror the shifting ways in which poetry creates meaning.

Sita\
Sita's Ramayana

A retelling of the timeless epic, this graphic novel is told from Sita's point of view and draws on a long tradition of female retellings of the saga.


Sita’s Ramayana shifts the point of view of the Ramayana – the saga of a heroic war – to bring a woman’s perspective to this timeless epic. Narrated by the heroine Sita, it is a powerful meditation on the fate of women, as they become pawns in the wars between men and kingdoms. But Sita is not just a patient victim of events – she endures her fate with fortitude, until the moment she decides to challenge it. The book unites two women from very different backgrounds: young urban writer Samhita Arni collaborates with Patua scroll artist Moyna Chitrakar to create this unusual graphic novel.
