Goa Archetypes

Venue Kala Academy

Somewhere in the Goan psyche we have Archetypal figures of who we were as a race, as a culture. Strictly speaking, figures such as the ‘Bhatkar’ (Landlord), the ‘Sasumai’ (Mother-in-law), the ‘Neustakan’ (Fisherwoman) and many more are not archetypes, but archetypal images which have crystallized out of the archetypes. The images are objective, but universal.

For the ‘Goa Archetypes’ series (2016), Alex Fernandes photographs two Tiatristes playing multiple roles.
