Artist Meera Devidayal
Devidayal premises her artworks on the city’s now-deserted mills that are glossed over with flower beds and fountains to evoke ironical connotations, justifying the title. As these once-humming mills are now in ruin, Devidayal shows how they’ve been ‘romanticised’.
On: July 5, 5.30 pm onwards (registration for the walk-through will be open on the spot). The show is till July 9, 11 am to 7 pm
At: Chemould Prescott Road, Queen’s Mansion, third floor, G Talwalkar Marg, Fort.
