Exploring the relationship between ecology and art in public spaces


Rahel Hegnauer, a visual artist from Zurich has studied at the Department of Environmental Art, Glasgow School of Art, Scotland. She then did her postgraduate studies in Art in Public Sphere (Master of Art) in Lucerne, Switzerland.

Currently, Rahel is in New Delhi to participate in the International ECO + ART Residency at KHOJ.

Open Studio Day on 19th December: Rahel Hegnauer's on-site guided tour from the studios to the Yamuna at Kalindi Kunj explores a perspective of the river through an elevated bamboo platform. Tested samples of the river water will be discussed.

KHOJ is hosting an international residency in an attempt to explore the relationship between ecology and art in public spaces from 12 November to 20 December 2007 in the city of Delhi. The city of Delhi is a bustling metropolis which has undergone a metamorphosis, changing the historical and ecological map of the city in the course of the last century. Increasingly, the environment may be perceived as much a political realm as an ecological one, from the perspective of production, consumption and of ownership rights.

KHOJ International Artists' Association is an artist led, alternative space for experimentation and international exchange based in India.
