Unlike other biennales that are defined by state-of-the-art galleries and air-conditioned interiors, the Kochi-Muziris biennale stands out, as it is marked by venues which posses an old-world charm, said writer Sethu after visiting the Aspinwall House, the main venue of the Kochi-Muziris biennale on Wednesday.

“The installations are in line with the looks and lay-outs of the buildings that house them,” remarked Sethu, who is also  the chairman of the National Book Trust.

About Vivan Sundaram’s installation art titled ‘Sand’, the writer said that the renowned artist had creditably tried to capture and showcase the essence of the long-lost Muziris culture.  

“My novel, ‘Marupiravi’, is an attempt to essay it through words. Those who have read it and seen this art work can make out how the same theme is being expressed through two different media,” he added.
