The new exhibit “Divine Debris”by contemporary artist Meena Kayastha showcases a series of works created over the year following the 2015 earthquake. Kayastha gives meaning to what was once discarded. She puts life back in doors from Bhaktapur that had once seen the glory of Newari craftsmanship. The artist exhibit also features a number of deities built with leftover scrap metal from the junkyard, a line of her signature style.

Artist States, “In this series I have used broken doors left behind after the devastation caused by the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. Doors, simply put, are openings to possibilities or closings that safeguard you. The symbolism used here is to make women realize and actualize that they are their own doors to limitless possibilities.”

The exhibition began on 27th Nov and will run till 11th Jan 2017 at Sidhhartha Art Gallery, Babermahal.
