I am really impressed, this airport feels so cozy and warm. I especially like those white columns I think in the departure hall that flares upward into the ceiling? Now thats cool.

The Mumbai airport is set to be the first airport in the country to see the world's largest commercial aircraft — the Airbus 380, with the civil aviation ministry allowing A380 operations in the country by foreign carriers in a phased manner.

"We have decided to allow foreign carriers to bring in Airbus 380s in a phased manner. It has been decided that Mumbai will be the first airport, where operation by Airbus 380s will be allowed," said a senior ministry official, who attended a meeting here on the issue.

He added that a decision in favour of Mumbai was taken as the city is getting a new international terminal that would be inaugurated in January.

Allowing carriers to operate Airbus 380s into India would be a change of stance by the government, which has, till now, stopped airlines from flying these planes into India. Lufthansa, Emirates and Singapore Airlines are three international carriers, who have shown interest in operating the jumbo aircraft into India.

The decision came through at the meeting attended by aviation secretary KN Srivastava, Directorate General of Civil Aviation Arun Mishra, Airports Authority of India chairman VP Agrawal, Air India chairman and managing director Rohit Nandan and joint secretary Prabhat Kumar.

A final decision on the issue will be taken by the civil aviation minister Ajit Singh.

The decision by the committee follows a verdict by the civil aviation regulator, after reviewing a study conducted by International Air Transport Association (IATA), which concluded that allowing foreign airlines to operate the jumbo aircraft would not "distort" the Indian market.

The A380 is the largest plane by size and the double-deck aircraft has a seating capacity for over 525 passengers in a three-class configuration. Around 85 such planes operate across the world but none of the Indian carriers have ordered Airbus 380s so far.

MUMBAI: In two weeks, India's largest museum dedicated to the country's arts, crafts and heritage will open its glass doors to the public. Unlike other museums though, you'd need an international air ticket to enter this one — this museum with nearly 7,000 artefacts, a 3km-long art wall and works by over 1,500 artists is housed in an airport. Somewhere between check-in and baggage claim, Mumbai's new integrated terminal T2 will show off some of the best of Indian art and craft to foreign visitors as well as Indians.

In fact, the art programme under way at T2 is so ambitious in thought, scale and design that the business of being an airport might seem an afterthought. For now, "Jaya He", the art project is a closely guarded secret: even journalists are not being allowed a view of the new terminal. But as the day of inauguration, January 10, draws close, details have started trickling out. It is unlikely any airport in the world in the 100-year-old history of commercial flight have showcased art on this scale.

Take the installation at T2's departure area — it occupies 80,000 sq feet and curves along the contours of the terminal building and displays a plethora of ancient finds (some date back to the10th century) like delicately carved doorways, building facades, windows, totems, pillars, decorative torans, terracotta horses, water spouts, lamps, wooden temple chariots, raths, masks, bows of snake boats, sculptures of deities, dwarpaals, beds carved out of single pieces of wood, mythical creatures, painted theatre curtains etc.

An 18m-tall installation, called ‘Theatrical Screening’ which is part of the ‘India Seamless’ theme and can be viewed from all four levels of T2, recreates backdrops and props popular in Marathi theatre. Two artists from the state, Moreshwar Patil and Anil Naik, have created the curtain panel

The art works, artefacts and installations which will s h owc a s e the best of local culture at the city’s airport’s new integrated ter minal T2 have been sourced in the last four years from the cities, villages, markets, collectors and museums of India.

The idea of marrying art and airports is not new, Europeans landed there first. Amsterdam airport exhibits the Rijksmuseum collections, France’s Toulouse airport began hosting contemporary art in 2012 and Paris airport’s in-house Espace Musées, which opened last year, displays works by French artists. But none of these projects are as prominent or ambitious as this one.

The potential audience for the art at T2 is staggering. Once the terminal opens its doors to the public on January 15, the terminal building, to be used initially only by international passengers, can claim to be the most visited museum in the world. With a capacity to handle 40 million passengers annually, T2’s ‘Jaya He’ museum could comfortably nudge Paris’ Louvre, currently the most visited art museum in the world with 9 million annual visitors, off its top slot.

The collections form part of six thematic compositions that employ collaborative works by about 100 artists to depict India’s many facets (see box). The installation, ‘Thresholds of India’, in the departure area, uses mediums like wood, glass, canvas, fibre glass, ceramics, papier-mache, terracotta, metal, stone and cloth and is viewable from all four levels of the terminal.

“Many objects, like the 19-century wooden totems from Morung in Nagaland needed restoration. Those had a thriving ecosystem of insects and worms inside it. All the finds have been catalogued, their provenance established and currently they are in the process of being registered with
the Archaeological Survey of India,’’ says an art industry insider.


This huge wall, located in the departure area, represents the ‘India’s Silent Sentinels’ element of the art wall. The upper section is titled ‘Celestial Realm,’ and the lower half bears about 17 totem poles, all sourced from the villages of the North East

The arrivals corridor has commissioned works by noted contemporary artists including Ghulam Mohammed Sheikh, Mithu Sen, Nek Chand, Riyas Komu, Nilima Sheikh and Desmond Lazaro, done along a wall that is 18 metres high and 1.2 km long. Like the departure wall, it is viewable from all levels. Titled “Layered Narratives’’, the series of installations capture the artists’ interpretation of Mumbai, urban India’s dreams and the disappointments that often come along.

“Many of the works incorporate kinetic elements and interactive technologies which makes for an interesting viewing experience, especially for those on the travelators,’’ says an art consultant.

Bollywood’s presence in the city’s collective consciousness is registered here in a mobile art work that, among other things, includes a magic box. Common men go into the box only to come out as Amitabh Bachchan, in his angry young man avatar. Then there is emerging artist Akshay Rajpurkar’s huge Google map of India, distinctly pixellated in appearance as it is made of computer chips, e-waste and blue buttons.


Heptad the 7th,’ an installation by Sharmila Samant made from 500 kilos of bottle caps and put up near the immigration counters, is part of the ‘India Global’ theme and juxtaposes the global against the local and notions of waste against recyclable materials

“Jaya He will be one of the world’s largest art programmes in public space. For a country where art works are largely relegated to the status of investments and public art is almost unheard of, T2 will be a revelation,’’ says an art consultant.

The expert says that it was way back in 2006 that Sanjay Reddy, vice-chairman of GVK group, which runs and operates the Mumbai airport, thought of using it as a space to showcase the country’s diverse and its rich heritage. After all, the airport offers a traveller the first and the last impression of a country. “In each of the preceding centuries, Mumbai has produced one iconic public building that grandly symbolized the city’s entrance, whether by land -- the CST railway terminal -- or the sea -- the Gateway of India. Reddy wanted the airport to have a similar iconic status,” says the consultant.

To give the inchoate idea a definite shape and destiny, Reddy roped in Rajeev Sethi, one of South Asia’s leading curators and scenographers. A 15-day road trip across India preceded the project. “A team comprising Reddy, his wife Pinky Reddy, Sethi, fashion designer Sandeep Khosla and GVK’s design team did the trip to get a feel and sense of India’s culture. The trip defined the overall components of T2’s art programme,’’ says an insider. Thereafter Reddy gave Sethi a free hand.

“Never ever in India has any art project been done on such a grand scale and in such a short time. For Sethi, it was both an opportunity and a challenge as there is no place quite like an airport to showcase art. It is temperaturecontrolled, with 24/7 security and gets millions of viewers. T2’s architecture also lend itself well to the job,’’ says an art consultant.
But way before T2 started taking shape, artists from across the country -- Patua artists from Midnapore, West Bengal, potters from Malaiyur, Tamil Nadu, Bastar pillar craftsmen from Kondagaon, Raipur – came down to Mumbai and began work at a workshop in Andheri. It was here that regional artists undertook, perhaps for the first time in their lives, works on such a scale. For Sethi, the work ground extended way beyond Mumbai. An art museum in Kochi was to be sold off to a client abroad when Sethi intervened and bought up all its rare and valuable artefacts for T2, says an art industry source.

At T2, Sethi broke more new ground. For instance, the installation, in the departure terminal demolishes common hierarchies in the art world. Works of art are not treated as more valuable than crafts. Regional artists and eminent ones not only share the same pedestal, but also collaborate on ideas that are mix of old and new, rural with urban, traditional with contemporary.

Elephants with wings, fish-like helicopters, fire-breathing mythical creatures carrying passengers in their belly -- all images conceived by Gond tribals have been brought to life as metal sculptures by Mukul Goyal, a Delhibased product designer. In a few months’ time these figures will be spotted in the company of metal clouds in one section of the departure installation.

Up above these mythical flying figures, the fuel-guzzling A320s and Boeing 737s may continue to circle in the congested airspace, waiting for their turn to land. But once they do, passengers will have no doubt in registering that T2 is different from the glass, steel and concrete structures that have come to define airports the world over.

The mask, the guru, the dwarpaal and Yaali are among 7,000 artefacts sourced and bought from collectors, museums, art dealers and sellers across India. Many of them needed restoration and repairs. They were catalogued, their provenance established, and currently the airport’s art programme team is in the process of registering them with the Archaeological Survey of India

THE ART OF VIEWING
The art wall can be viewed from any level or can be viewed from the perspective of its artists, makers. There are QR codes printed for different works and a passenger who wants to learn about a certain piece can aim his/her mobile, capture the code and view the relevant films on the works. iPhones were given to the family members of regional artists and they have themselves made films about their work. Then again, to assist and guide the passengers through the art program, information kiosks have been placed along the wall

LONG-TERM PROGRAMME
Sethi has called Jaya He an art programme and not an art project. Unlike a programme, a project has a beginning, middle and an end. The museum is planning a comprehensive public outreach program to promote Indian art, craft and culture globally and in India. In 2015, when the terminal opens to domestic passengers as well, there will be many more programmes

THE NEW T2
80,000-SQ-FEET
INSTALLATION HAS SIX THEMES

India Elemental | Based on the concept of panch mahabhutas, the five elements. Water is represented in an interactive installation by Sethi and film director Shekhar Kapur. It flows from ancient water spouts sourced from across the country and on touching, it seems to produce a musical note

India Seamless | depicts the myths, histories and popular culture of different regions of the country

India Greets | a tableau of doorways, facades, jharokas, windows, porches sourced from across the country

India’s Silent Sentinels | comprises totems, gables, pillars, brackets, torans, figures of dwarpaals (guardians), etc

India Moves | ancient modes of transport such as vaahanas, palanquins, carts and rathas

India Global | new urbanscapes and lifestyles
