Of course I am aware of what the Kochi Muziris Biennale is. The biennale is an excellent opportunity for local artistes. So many different artistes converging in the city will be an excellent opportunity for them (local artistes)… look at the exposure they will get. Students of art will gain from the shows. As an artist I like the concept, it is a good one. The tourism industry stands to gain from the people who will come for the shows. I am aware of the controversies too. I believe, irrespective of the controversies, the biennale should go on. It shouldn’t be abandoned.
