Khirkee-ki-Khoj: Khirkee Mural

KHOJ has initiated a series of projects that aim to take art out of the gallery space and back into the public domain. In our previous interaction with the Khirki community, we mapped the street, made friends with a few residents and held a show where we photographed friends and tried to unveil the various perspectives of friendship. KHOJ also carried out a kite making workshop for the children in the community. In continuation with the community based art projects, the wall facing KHOJ has been transformed into a gigantic canvas.

The Khirkee Mural project ran from the 1st-10th of April 2005 with input from the community at every stage during the process. The end result was a true marriage of the aesthetics of both the community and the artist.
