Over the past few months, the Kadak Collective has been working to create a set of graphic narratives about breasts. From moobs to masectomy to the male gaze, a variety of perspectives on the same subject matter.
We were one of nine grantees for this year’s Gender Bender, a joint project of Sandbox Collective and Goethe Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan.
The artists, illustrators, and designers in this chapter of Kadak are Aarthi Parthasarathy, Akhila Krishnan, Janine Shroff, Kritika Trehan, Mira Malhotra, Pavithra Dikshit, Priya Dali, Rae Zachariah, Sanika Palsikar, Shreyas R Krishnan
Our work, along with our expanding traveling Reading Room, and work by the other grantees is on exhibit at Goethe-Institut Bangalore, August 24 from 5-7pm (preview) & Aug 25-26, 12-7pm.
My short piece created for Gender Bender ’18 is also available to view online here
An abstract visual piece on breasts, the male gaze and the monstrous/grotesque.
