Godrej Archives, the business archive of Godrej Group, in line with its philosophy ‘Restore. Reflect. Reimagine.’ is lending a new lease to its last batch of typewriters by collaborating with the world’s only known typewriter sculptor, Jeremy Mayer.
Jeremy will treat the city art aficionados to surreal sculptures and mandalas created using parts of the typewriters. He is a renowned sculpture artist who disassembles typewriters and reassembles them into full scale, anatomically correct figures. He does not solder, weld or glue the pieces together – it is entirely a cold assembly. The artist also does not use any parts that do not come from a typewriter. This will be India’s only typewriter sculpture. The finished product will be unveiled on August 12, 2015.
After the event, Jeremy will also flag off the ‘Artist-in-residence’ programme, an initiative that encourages artists from across the globe to reinterpret 118 years of heritage so that the current and future generations are inspired to reimagine the past and build a brighter future.
Head to the Godrej Hubble, Plant 13 Annexe, Godrej & Boyce, Vikhroli (East), on Wednesday, August 12. The event takes place from 3.30 pm to 8 pm. Entry is free to all.
