Event: Book Launch – The Cloth of the Mother Goddess

SADACC - Cloth of the Mother Goddess

Event date: Thursday 14 April, 6pm

The Cloth of the Mother Goddess by Jagdish Chitara is a limited-edition artists’ book consisting of a sequence of folding panels, designed to invoke pre-modern – and particularly Asian – traditions of bookmaking. It has been made by hand from block-printed cloth panels. Each book is a work of art, which recreates a ritual Indian textile art form known as Mata-Ni-Pachedi.

The book’s editor, Arun Wolf, is giving a talk next week at SADACC (South Asian Decorative Arts & Crafts Collection) in Norwich. He will be talking about the traditions and processes behind the book, alongside a short film that provides a glimpse into the artist Jagdish Chitara’s work.

Entry is free and refreshments will be provided.

To order the book online, visit the publisher’s website: Tara Books.
