“India, mon amour” – The Eye-catching photo exhibition at Anjuna

Anjuna currently has a photo exhibition that is well worth a visit. Multidisciplinary artist Karolina Piech is presenting her first solo exhibition entitled “India, mon amour”, which is held at the library space of the Flying Goat Café and can be visited until Dec. 12, 2022 (opening hours & address below). The opening on November 12 was accompanied by dance performance and music, with much potential to enrich Goa’s artistic diversity.

Born in Krakow, Poland, Karolina has spent the last few years in India, teaching creative design and photography at some of the country’s most prestigious fashion schools. With a degree in Fine Arts from the Fashion Design Department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium, and many years of experience working for some of Europe’s most renowned fashion houses (Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen), Karolina is revealing her photographic works to the eyes of the public for the first time in a solo-show. The exhibition comprises photographs taken from 2017-2021 during her sojourn in India. Serving both as a personal diary and an intimate dialogue with the world around her, the works are anything but stereotypical representations of India by travellers from abroad. Karolina’s artistic gaze captures friends and lovers, as well as seemingly random motifs revealing the beauty of structures and the poetry of decay. The underlying emotion that defines the dialogue with her photographic objects is love: “India, Mon Amour”.

With a thorough exposure to avant-garde artistic currents of Europe from the 1980s to the present, photography has been an integral part of her personal journey since childhood. Her first camera was an analogue Praktica (manufactured in then Soviet-occupied East Germany). It was given to her by her father, an architect, who taught her how to use it before she was even ten years old. Despite her preference of analogue technologies — she loves using a type-writer —, the show includes photographs taken with analogue and digital devices alike, both in colour and in black and white.

All photographs are printed on high-quality paper (Hahnemühle) and can be purchased at the venue.

Location: The Flying Goat, House 694/1, D’Mello Waddo, Mapusa, Near Starco Junction, Anjuna, Goa. Call +919820772399.

Opening times: Thursday – Tuesday, 10.30 – 22.30 (Closed on Wednesday)
