Moyna Chitrakar, Joydeb Chitrakar

Rendered by Patua scroll painters from West Bengal, Tsunami recalls a terrifying event in our common history. In the traditional manner of Patua art, this innovative scroll-book transforms dramatic news into a moving and artfully rendered fable. Dirge-like in tone and translated from the original Bengali, the tsunami ballad evokes, as all ancient forms of keening do, the persistence of life in death. The first Patua scroll to be rendered into the form of a book, Tsunami is silk-screen-printed by hand.
