Frankly a film is a film and I would really not categorise it in specific slots and give a tag to it The moment this tag: ‘women-oriented’ films is chucked things will change but if you look at the opening figures of Mary Kom (over 7 crore) you will understand that a change has already set in All of us associated with the film were wondering about the fate of the film at the box-office and when it got the biggest opening for a female oriented movie we knew we had made history The weekend collections also crossed 20 crore which is almost the same as some of our hero-centric films I really cannot comment on whether the film did well because it had an A-lister star like Priyanka Chopra playing Mary Kom I also cannot predict that had I not taken Priyanka the figures would have been the same But I wanted people to see my film and it was a tough role which only a few could have done justice to Besides the notion that only a few directors are adept at handling such subjects is a fallacy But of course some sensitive subjects like child trafficking which was the central theme in Mardaani does require an imaginative director In fact even I was not aware that I could make a woman oriented film and I did it While making Mary Kom all that I focussed on was the character and not the gender of the protagonist It is important to mention here that the supporting cast in such a film is extremely important In Mary Kom all the other actors like Darshan Kumar and Sunil Thapa made Priyanka’s character look more real and convincing As told to Geety Sahgal For all the latest

future conflicts of the human race A woman impeccably dressed in black evening wear enters an enclosure that resembles a laboratory Tucking her hair carefully into a shower cap she puts on safety glasses and industrial rubber gloves A knife in hand she picks up one of the eight pillows that are placed in the enclosure and begins to attack it mercilessly tearing at the cover and pulling out the feathers This goes on for about 20 minutes until the enclosure is full of bird feathers from the slaughtered pillows This performance titled Screaming Feathers by Berlin-based artist Nezaket Ekici was conceived after the 2003-04 bird flu outbreak Deeply disturbed by the abuse of poultry during this period she reacted in protest “Through my performance I’m responding to the ill-treatment of birds by humans” she says adding “The sound of the screaming hen in the background the feathers that swirl around and my violent attack create a sense of discomfort and open the viewer’s eyes to the torture we are inflicting upon a species” Ekici’s performance opened the show titled “Dissonance: Transgressed boundaries between Desire and Fear” recently at the Percept Art Gallery in Mumbai “The concept was to highlight the problems the human race has brought upon itself We invited artists to react to global issues of say living under the constant threat of ecological crises the power of consumerism in our lives the overflow of data on social media and the desire to manufacture perfection in everything from crops to babies through genetic modification” says Jesal Thacker of the gallery who has curated the show along with Vienna-based curator Isin Onol While Ekici targets animal healthcare her contemporaries — Berlin-based Pinar Yoldas and Vienna-based Nita Tandon — contextualise their works in a more futuristic space Yoldas’ works “Design Babies” take the form of small eerie sculptures of human fetuses that are encased in glass jars The fetuses are adorned with colourful beads and hair extensions and represent the idea of extreme modification to fit idea of beauty Interested in neuroscience and bio-ethics Yoldas says “My work questions the limits to which human beings will alter the human biology going against the course of nature till they realise what they have done” Tandon imagines a similar dystopian society through her work Fingerprint Erased Through a performance video we

Aher’s work is the result of a year-long project based on the issue of plastic waste She presents “plastic garlands” — plastic scraps tied together with white thread “When I began I understood that the labour class chasing the basic dream of roti kapda and makaan had little time to worry about waste and environment So I thought of explaining it to them in a way they could relate with” Aher says For a year she would lug along a bag filling it with plastic bottles wrappers bags and toys from the streets Then she would seat herself roadside and begin to make a mala out of the scrap “People recognise mala-making They’ve seen their mothers and grandmothers tie threads around fresh flowers to make a garland” says Aher This familiarity of ritual would draw them in and she’d invite them to join her starting a conversation about plastic and waste Having a dialogue was essential she says “Hawa and paani are not the only things that are polluted Talking helps people understand the urgency
