Whorled Explorations: 
Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2014 (Short Guide)
This is a short guide to the second edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (KMB) from 12 December 2014 to 29 March 2015. Spread across multiple venues in the city of Kochi in southern India, the exhibition features 95 artists from 30 countries. 

'Two chronologically overlapping, but perhaps directly unrelated, historical episodes in Kerala during the 14th to 17th Centuries become parallel points of departure for Whorled Explorations. Drawing from them, allusions to the historical and the cosmological recur throughout the exhibition like exaggerated extensions to gestures we make when we try to see or understand something. We either go close to it or move away from it in space, to see it clearly; we also reflect back or forth in time to understand the present. Whorled Explorations draws upon this act of deliberation, across axes of time and space to interlace the bygone with the imminent, the terrestrial with the celestial.' - Artistic Director and Curator Jitish Kallat (from the KMB website)
