Processing of Art & Craft Making, Jagannath and Lingaraj Interpretation Centre

Bhubaneswar & Puri, Odisha | 2022

The Jagannath Temple in Puri and the Lingaraj Temple in Bhubaneswar, built almost a thousand years ago are two of the most iconic temples of Odisha. Over the last year and a half Siddhartha Das Studio has worked with researchers, subject experts and over a hundred master craftspeople to interpret these two historic living temples.

This exhibition showcases many exquisite objects that range from miniature stone and wooden models to drawings, engravings and paintings that visualise sacred Vedic texts and films that document the many rituals and festivals. It will offer a glimpse into the creation of the two Interpretation Centres on the two Temples. All exhibits for the Centres are conceived by the Studio and are made by master craftspeople of Odisha.

I invite viewers to interpret the temples of Odisha in a way that is informative, engaging and immersive.
