The fires of faith by Benitha Perciyal. An installation at Kochi Muziris Biennale 2014
Bark powder, frankincense, myrrh, cinnamon, cloves, lemon grass, cedar wood, coal, leather dried gourds, wood, perfume and essential oil bottles and assorted objects of daily use are used in the Benitha Perciyal's installation titled 'The fires of faith' installed in the pepper house of Fort Kochi. It points back to the arrival of St.Thomas considered to have triggered the spread of christianity in the Indian sub continent. Here are some photographs I captured during my visit to the biennale.
