Kochi-Muziris Biennale Welcome video, “To the child in us” ( Don’t forget to switch on the English sub-titles!)
Why it’s a must-go, must-see, must-experience event: If you love art, you’ll love this. If you aren’t much fond of art, this might be the catalyst for you to turn into an art-lover. At Kochi-Muziris Biennale, the artists engage all your senses, and then some more. While Anish Kapoor’s perpetual whirlpool “Descension” can make you dizzy or philosophical, the unique exhibit of Norwegian artist Sissel Tolaas transports to you a different world, with your sense of smell.
