Internationally recognized artist, Mohini Chandra, has created a new work inspired by her walks onto the Dartington estate during the Coronavirus lockdowns. The art film, titled Belated, was commissioned by Autograph gallery in Hackney, London, and draws both on the natural surroundings here on the estate and Dartington’s historic links with the Bengali polymath, Rabindranath Tagore. Belated will be on display at Autograph in their exhibition “Care | Contagion | Community — Self & Other” curated by Renée Mussai, Mark Sealy and Bindi Vora, which is on from 23 Sep 2021 – 12 Feb 2022.
