THE CLOTH OF THE MOTHER GODDESS
THE CLOTH OF THE MOTHER GODDESS

This hand block-printed textile book tells the story of the origins of Mata-Ni-Pachedi, the ritual ‘Cloth of the Mother Goddess’. Traditionally created by artisans from the nomadic Vaghari community in Gujarat, these votive cloths offer a painted image of the goddess to herself. 


New

Hand block-printed on textile, this limited-edition artists’ book consists of a sequence of folding panels, designed to invoke pre-modern – particularly Asian – traditions of bookmaking. At the same time, the panels recall and recreate a Mata-Ni-Pachedi - the ritual ‘Cloth of the Mother Goddess’ - and tell the story of its origins. The tactility of the book invokes the labour and craft that have gone into its creation, deepening the viewer’s enjoyment and understanding of the art tradition. The images featured in the book have been painted by Jagdish Chitara, who belongs to the Vaghari community of artisans from Gujarat in western India.

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.

New

The Bhil people of Central India are amongst the oldest indigenous communities in India. To them, the natural world — of trees, creatures that inhabit them, and the forest of which they are a part — is not ‘out there’, but rather exists in a seamless relationship to their home and the everyday. Gangu Bai, Bhil artist, explores this relationship through her memories and pings of food, work, festivals, illness, medicine and much else. Her tales centre round trees, and so each of her memories has a tree as its focus.
