A new museum just opened on the East Coast Road in Chennai and no, it is not full of stuffy artefacts. In fact, you and your family are likely to go berserk taking selfies with the interactive 3D art on display here – it is so much fun!!
The art form is technically known as Tompe-l’oeil in French, and means to ‘deceive the eye.’ But let’s just call it 3D trick art – the kind that has two dimensions but tricks you into believing there is a third. The talented powerhouse behind this amazing effort is artist AP Shreethar.
“In this museum every piece of art is complete only when the viewer enters the frame. It is interactive art,” Shreethar told New Indian Express.
All 24 art pieces in this museum have been painted on the wall. But viewers have to stand on the markings on the floor in front of them in order to be a part of the paintings.
So go ahead and monkey around with selfies
Or get kicked around by Bruce Lee
But remember to eat the healthy snack offered by Adam
And dance like a puppet on a string
Next, take a washroom break (with some ‘pee’ping Janes)
So your hands are clean before you receive an Oscar
Let the kids mess with the bubbles
And don’t forget to pet the snake on the way out
The Click Art Museum is located at Snow Kingdom, VGP complex, East Coast Road, Chennai. Call for timings.
