6th Edition of The Experimenter Curators’ Hub Focuses on Experimental and Alternative Artists

Experimental-Curators-hub

Prateek and Priyanka Raja who spearhead Experimenter Curators’ Hub spoke about the current edition and their future plans. Initiated in 2009, it goes outside the usual parameters of the art market, highlighting instead experimental and alternative artists from all over the world.

Entering its 6th edition, the Experimenter Curators’ Hub is a crucial platform in developing and sustaining discourse on curatorial practice and exhibition. The curators participating at ECH 2016 are Ariana Pradal, Cosmin Costinas, Dayanita Singh, Giorgio Galleani, Marta Smolinska, Maud Page, Naman Ahuja, Natasha Ginwala, Rahaab Allana, Susie Lingham and Hans-Ulrich Obrist (via video conference).

According to Prateek, Kolkata was chosen as the home for ECH primarily for two reasons. Besides the fact that Experimenter is in Kolkata, they wanted bring the most amazing minds in contemporary art to the city and also because they feel that Kolkata has always had a sense for the arts.

Speaking about the local art scenario and ECH’s contribution to it, Priyanka elucidates that Kolkata now needs fresh perspective towards contemporary art. One of the biggest assets has been to document and archive all the Hub’s discussions as an online, freely accessible resource that can be viewed by students, researchers and curators on the Experimenter website.

Recognizing the importance of social media, this year, interviews with each of the curators on a daily basis will be posted leading up to the event. This way, audiences will get to know the curators a bit better before the Hub.

This event will take place on 28th, 29th and 30th July.

Interview: Actress Swastika Mukherjee on Playing Bibi in Pratim D Gupta’s Shaheb Bibi Golaam

Swastika-Mukherjee-hot-picture

She is well known for her portrayal of bold and strong women characters on-screen. She will be next seen playing a housewife in director Pratim D Gupta’s thriller Shaheb Bibi Golaam. Actress Swastika Mukherjee was engaged in an avid conversation by Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent at the trailer launch event of the film. Excerpts..

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Judging by the trailer, we see a little different housewife on screen. What will you like to say about the character?

Swastika Mukherjee- I simply do not want to use the words like strong or bold to define the character of Jaya in the film Shaheb Bibi Golaam. Yes, this is a different character- one that I have not played before. At this stage of my career, why will I select a weak character? This is indeed a strong character in that sense. Jaya is a normal next door housewife but she has different shades. This is unlike something that I have even attempted beforehand.

How did you prepare yourself for the role?

Swastika Mukherjee- I did not do any preparations as such. I just did rehearsals for the dance movements as I was not familiar with those. I just had seen them on television beforehand. Pratim did give me some references to check out. I thought I would faint by seeing those. I have tried to do my very best. Let’s see how the audience likes my performance.

Swastika-Mukherjee-Interview

Every character that you have played had given a message. Is there any message that your character in the film will be giving to the audience?

Swastika Mukherjee– My character talks about emancipation and liberation. As a woman, it speaks about saying out about the desires which may be sexual or emotional. It also highlights on the coming out of a woman from the taboos inflicted on her. Look when a woman uses slangs, it turns the heads of many people. When I speak slangs for a role, people start thinking with whom they will go to the hall to watch the film. They cannot take their mother or wife for such films. But when a male actor like Prosenjit Chatterjee uses slangs in Baishe Srabon, the same group of people claps and whistles at the halls. Hence with the help of this character, it is shown that it is not wrong when a married woman speaks about her inner sexual needs.

You are working with Pratim for the first time. How was the experience?

Swastika Mukherjee- Well, he is a new director but since I know him beforehand I did not have any problems. I did not have to think that how is he as a person or how he will be instructing us. Since I knew him, it helped me during the shooting very much.

Swastika-Mukherjee-Shaheb-Bibi-Golaam

How did you bag the role?

Swastika Mukherjee- I got a call from Pratim even before he decided about the casting of the other characters. But this does not mean that I have huge home work for the film. I never do for any of my films. I read the script, listen to the director and then formulate my ideas about how the character should be portrayed. I did the same for this film. The only thing I practiced was the dance.

What are the other projects that you are working on?

Swastika Mukherjee- I have worked in Aniket Chattopadhyay’s film based on the sleuth Kiriti where I play an Anglo-Indian woman and there is another film named Headlines.

Wishing Swastika Mukherjee all the best for Shaheb Bibi Golaam and we hope that she continues to do such bold and strong roles in future!!
