Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa and Union Minister for Culture and Tourism Prahlad Singh Patel inaugurate the Cha-Chai, installation of the art-work of Joana Vasconcelos at the National Museum. The installation represents the five o'clock tradition of serving tea in Portugal originated in the 17th century.


Indian and Portugal

India and Portugal collaborating to develop various cultural projects in India. The teapot artwork was symbolic, depicting cultural bridges between people and people-to-people relations between the two countries. The exhibition will further strengthen the cultural bonds between the two countries.

 

Cha- Chai

This exhibition brings Cha-Chai, a wrought-iron sculpture shaped like a teapot, by the renowned artist, Joana Vasconcelos. The Tea Pot and its iron railings represent the bridge between urban and rural landscape. The aroma of tea depicted by the installation, takes visitors to a memorable journey from this physical world to a surreal world.

The long-lasting connection between Portugal and India shines through tea or chai. The Portuguese adopted cha (Sha) as their word for it, incredibly close to the Indian chai. Vasconcelos conveyed her thanks to the National Museum for exhibiting her artwork in the museum. The installation on the front lawn of the museum will remain open to the public till June 30.
