Red Crown, Green Parrot is a public art project, a continuation of the curatorial project “Box of Documents”, which was exhibited at the last Kochi-Muziris Biennale.The project now moves from within the confines of the gallery to Jew Town, at specific public sites, that recall memories of a fading Jewish heritage in Kochi. Artists Meydad Eliyahu and Thoufeek Zakriya are concerned not only with contemporary art, which helps in the expression of history, but also art in the written form-as calligraphy- in Hebrew, Malayalam and English. It ties together a strong past of a community whose skeletal bits remain. It aims to evoke in people the power of art and heritage, and how it continues to be unconsciously and inextricably woven into our lives, even in the current day.
