Ceramics / Installation

After successfully maintaining a ceramic studio in Mumbai for the last 10 years, Devyani Smith has reached an intersection of life that makes her reflective about “the known and the unknown, the done and the undone, the life lived and the life to be lived”. Thus, her SAAS-3 proposal: BROKEN POTTERY or LIFE BETWEEN LIVES is the deeply personal attempt to create “a place in the head where you put yourself before deciding where your next attachment is… a life between lives”. The idea that she sets up “another studio” in Gunehar “all over again” does not appeal to her; she would much rather carry with her the broken pieces of pottery laying around in her studio and combine these with other materials to create a map of consciousness and contemplation, consisting of lines not “merely to see but to live through”.
