Clemens Behr for Sassoon Dock Art Project
Earlier this month Clemens Behr travelled to India to develop two site-specific installations for the Sassoon Dock Art Project in Mumbai. Behr created an artwork in the courtyard covering the facade of a building with a combination of a wall painting and a installation using materials found in the nearby area. The second, more colourful installation inside the building represents a cityscape with elements, materials and impressions from the city. Sassoon Dock Art Project is part of the second edition of the St+art Mumbai Urban Art Festival. The initiator St+art India Foundation invited twenty-five artists to transform Sassoon Dock, one of the oldest docks in Mumbai, into an art district with site-specific installations, murals, audiovisual experiences, screenings and talks.
