Art Protest - Performance inside the gallery Space 30 minutes 3rd day of Art Marathon 

Venkatappa Art Gallery, Bangalore May 11 2016 

Art Marathon was 3 days event. We (artists)were  staging different artistic events in order to involve larger public and also showcasing hundreds of artists from Bangalore and around the state, where over hundred artists are showing creative works Paintings, Sculptures, Performance and Poetry etc. 

The third day of marathon I had reserved my performance for indoor space I Performed BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE AND OF THE PEOPLE’  First Two day of performance was outdoor on streets of Cubbon park Mg road and around the Museum area.The performance on third and last day started by mapping the gallery space with Rangoli powder and the constant stamping action of Floor plan (Map) Stamp  of Venkatappa Building on hundreds of Xerox  copies of constitutional preamble Stressing on point that the Venkatappa art Gallery is public art gallery and public has their full  right on it and it should remain public it should not be given to any private entity.

The act of stamping map on Xerox copies was backed up my voice stressing on importance of Voice of people by shouting ‘BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE AND OF THE PEOPLE’ basically to convey that VAG is for the people and by people and of the people. While Shouting this I was also marking (outlining footprint) of people by chalk showing their presence in the gallery symbolically denoting that the voices of common people cannot be ignored by the Government. This performance had quite a impact on audiences as continues sound of stamping stressed on Point of voices to be heard.
