Knock on Wood

Nazar na lage loosely translates to “knock on wood”, a superstitious Indian phrase mean to ward off negative energy. Artist Noni Kaur’s vibrant rangoli work welcomes visitors back into the gallery after years of pandemic upheaval. A cultural practice in India and Singapore, the art of rangoli uses coloured materials to decorate floors in domestic and public spaces. Traditionally made from powder pigments, flowers, rice or sand, this practice attracts positive energy for celebrating auspicious occasions. On from January 1st to January 15th!
