Please join us & the Australian Consul General, Mark Pierce for the inauguration & opening of 'Porosity Kabari' Exhibition on Friday February 19th 2016 at 6:30pm.
Porosity Kabari is an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, collaborative project whereby Australian object designer Trent Jansen, and architect/sculptor Richard Goodwin, will work with Indian graphic/object designer Ishan Khosla as well as students from ISDI Parsons Mumbai.
The project challenges these designers to collaborate in Mumbai’s ‘Chor Bazaar’ (thieves market) and ‘Studio X’, using the bazaar as their only source of materials and making processes. In the bazaar, the designers will learn from spontaneous conversation and experimentation with the vendors and crafts people working in this manic market place. Conversely, Studio X will afford the designers a space for considered discussion and precise prototyping, in the development of refined ideas to be taken back into the bazaar.
