Jayati posted on 13 July

What Is It?

Have you ever been to a gallery, looked at an installation and wanted to play with it? Carpe Art is organising a game night meet up wherein you can meet the artist who has created a board game, The Travelling Hand, on July 16 at a house in Bandra {and even play it}.

Who Is It For?

Since we last told you about Carpe Art, they had promised us with more interesting events. On July 16, you can attend a game night at Natasha’s house {co-founder of the group} and learn more about board games that also serve as an extension of contemporary art. It’s for anyone who wants to engage with something new, and exciting and at the same time while having fun.

At the meet up, founder of TARQ gallery will also talk about the art form of board games and when a game can potentially become contemporary art. The talk will be followed by a fun session wherein you get to try your hand at Gayatru Kodikal’s latest board game – The Travelling Hand.

Why Should I Go?

Smelling Palimpsests Under Moonlit Mangroves is an intriguing board game by Gayatri that has been in the making for a while. She will tell us about the her art {the game} and explain us how it really works. Just to give you some context, the game is a multi-media game installation, with handmade clay tokens, a unique form of dice, and even a custom-made digital tool that’ll film ‘molecules’ projected on a flat surface.

The idea is to engage with art. Additionally, you’ll be meeting new people, socialising with them and of course, drinking and playing.

Anything Else?

‘Board games as art’ is an upcoming play on contemporary art and at this meet up, you can educate yourself on this. Though it’s not all work and no play.

They have limited spots, so make sure to RSVP by dropping a message to Nathan/Natasha or drop a comment on the event page.
