Vineet Kacker draws upon Eastern philosophies and art and architecture that references the sacred, especially from the High-Himalayan regions of the Indian sub-continent. He will be planning to recreate his ‘Landscape’ pieces at the Festival, in which there is an organic, striated landscape base, with an architectural stupa-like form on top. He will be working with soft pliable clay that is stretched and quickly shaped into undetermined organic forms. “Both my formal architectural training, as well as my travels through the Himalayas inform my work. These two influences have a direct bearing on my making process. From the architecture side comes a process of building and embellishment, of working with set clay slabs, of putting several separately made parts together.” www.vineetkacker.com
