Yog Raj Chitrakar: Memory Drawing X Part 2

Chatterjee & Lal, Mumbai
Dr. Bahu Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai

March 2010
Duration 12 hours over 2 days
Costumes: Loise Braganza
Photography: Shivani Gupta
Production Assistance: Starlyn D’ Souza and Aarti Sunder

The performance took place at the Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai on Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th from 10 am to 5 pm. The building is a restored 19th Century building and was previously  the Victoria and Albert Museum. The museum is situated in the center of South Mumbai and shares its compound with the city zoo. The people that come through the Museum were largely Sunday picnicers making a quick stop at the museum on their way in or out of the zoo. The performance caught a lot of its audience unaware.

As a counterpart to Memory Drawing X Part 1, Yog Raj dressed in the garb of a Victorian lady, stayed imprisoned in the Museum and its garden, making a drawing of the building. Along side the performance were images, the drawing and costume on display in the museum from Memory Drawing X part 1.
