BC as a space for art-practice is conceived as a house that hosts many ideas and point of views, a venue for arts to fuse and multiply.

T Ramesh

After finishing BFA in Visual Communication from the Government College of Fine Arts, Chennai in 2014, T Ramesh now leads a sort of nomadic life, learning about nature’s non-permanence and making things, of art and utility, with natural and waste materials, themselves inherently temporary. In Eastern Ghats, he works to build a back to nature school, growing plants, and making things such as containers for seeds and water from bamboo, coconut, palm seeds, stones, bones, wire etc. In this land, besides the other people there, he lives with rescued animals, including two emus and a monkey, becoming friends as well with the villagers. He is also part of a local, contemporary, experimental, body and land based ritual theatre troupe, acting, playing music especially the didgeridoo and making theatre property such as masks and dolls, integral to Tamil plays that espouse transformative politics of marginal histories and practices. Earlier he travelled to Uttarakhand, as part of a trek campaign to understand the lives of people across its breadth; and to Meghalaya and Assam, traveling and staying with friends in villages. Besides sketches, I brought back understandings of local architecture and agriculture, impressions, also of art and theatre, memories, friendships, and native seeds. Ultimately, in his work and life he looks at what his borders are, within the large borders which seperates people to move towards a borderless point. His works 'naming, a performing trap', 'still, life', 'sweat', and 'irrunthum illama poguthu/ even as it is, it will not be' are showcased at our show Stutter in your eloquence
