Gram Art Project

Bio Last Updated


Gram Art Project is a collective of farmers, artists, women and makers. These are people of different ideas and identities but connected together by living and working in and around a village they all are concerned about — Paradsinga, situated in Sausar Tehsil of Chhindwara district of Madhya Pradesh. Paradsinga is like any other Indian village, undergoing migration with people aspiring for jobs to escape the poverty ridden circle of agriculture and patriarchal structures, while still trying to stick to their traditions, superstitions and religious beliefs.

With this journey in the backdrop, Gram Project is trying to buildtheir collective consciousness around understanding this journey, its repercussions, the vitalities and the trivialities of it and be expressive while doing it. This expression comes out through the Collective’s work and artworks. Sometimes these artworks take the form of landarts, sometimes they take the form of yarn artefacts made from the non-GM (Genetically Modified) IPR-free (Intellectual Property Rights) non- hybrid indigenous cotton that is grown there. These expressions also take the form of plantable seed papers and eatable artefacts made from the organic produce from their farms. Additionally they also use performance, making and other media as other forms of expressions.
