Method Bandra presents its ongoing solo show by renowned Spanish artist Mujer Gitana titled ‘Kindness is your Weapon’ started 12th January untill 12th February.
Behind every war there is a battle to overcome. This collection of works presents and plays with peaceful weapons capable of winning battles. Through love, forgiveness, and compassion everything generates the energy that you bring to it. If you respond with violence to a situation of violence, the result is the sum of the two: more violence. On the other hand, if you add compassion, the formula is distorted and the result can be to help others or yourself to live in a more peaceful world. “Kindness is Your Weapon” is an invitation to understand peaceful responses as weapons with the possibility of leave this world a little better.
In the works, symbols such as doors, wells (depths of the earth), nature, and places of balance are represented and accompanied by weapons—or tools—that hold a new, peaceful meaning. If used correctly, we can reach new places of peace and beauty.
Mujer Gitana began her artistic career with graffiti in 2004, in this format she found a starting point where she could investigate her language through shapes, letters and colors. With time and maturity, graffiti becomes a means of sharing existential messages of love and positivism, as an exercise in healing through creativity. After having travelled around the world for 18 years painting graffiti, she begins to share other types of more figurative works with the main objective of healing through creativity and reflection on vital issues.
A trip to the imaginary psychedelia, the mystical, graffiti, labels and nostalgia for a world that is about to transform.
“ The Revolution introduced me to art, and in turn art introduced me to the Revolution! ” –Albert Einstein
It’s unclear as to whether Einstein was talking about a political or scientific revolution, but it is evident that art and breaking away are intermingled at the core. Method is an introspective and “extrospective” approach to art and the world in which it currently exists. By acknowledging that limitlessness is an inherent characteristic of creativity, we fall beyond the domain of predetermined outcomes not only as artists but as a community. In doing so, we transpose and expand with the movement of art. This cultivates collaboration and experimentation for the purpose of expression as well as discovery.
At present, Method has two physical spaces in Mumbai. Method Kala Ghoda primarily showcases fine art and installations. Method Bandra focuses on new media, photography, and human connectivity.
