Poems and paintings by Mukta Kamplikar reflect on the unforgettable years of the pandemic. “Time slowed down in 2020. Seasons rolled as usual and yet they were different – they often felt black and grey when I was seeking colour. The pandemic showed me parts of myself that I had never seen before. The slowing down also helped me learn that we are so deeply affected by each season and even our own breath if we pay attention to it. I saw myself impacted in very strange ways by every large and little change that occurred around me,” says the poet-artist. ‘The Girl and the Timelapse’ opens with an exhibition of paintings and a reading from a book of poems of the same name on December 11, 5.30 pm. The paintings will be on display on December 11 and 12 at Art2day, Bhandarker Road. Entry: Free
