Tatiana Musi: At home in her mind's garden
A set of serendipities made Tatiana Musi, 28, a global nomad. She's moved between Mexico City, London, Tokyo and San Francisco in search of art training.
Earlier this year she landed a two-month residency at the Kriti Gallery in Varanasi, her second trip to the city. She wanted to reconstruct from memory a garden she'd seen the first time. Then she fell ill. But coincidentally enough, the garden was right next to her hospital window. The result is a series of lively watercolours and an installation.
The exhibition, Mind Fills, is on at Instituto Cervantes, First Floor, 48 Hanuman Road, till till January 7. Call 4368.1900 for more

Food as meditation
It has less to do with Italy's slow food movement and more with the mindfulness expounded by Vietnamese Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, says food activist Anaam about this meditative-eating programme which celebrates the joy of eating in silence: without the intrusion of a cellphone, television or even a conversation. Anaam draws inspiration from Osho and 19th century Russian mystic George Gurdjieff.
"Both advocate paying attention to the moment. Eaten silently, the food activates the senses."
