Photo Update: Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016

This is the second time I got an opportunity to visit Kochi-Muziris Biennale for its 3rd edition and was thrilled with  the art installations. 

I started from Aspinwall House and then visited Greenix  and  Pepper House exhibits. On the way I stopped at various art installations, and clicked pictures of interesting art installations and information relating to them.
