Goa/Portugal/Mozambique: The Many Lives of Vamona Navelcar is a hybrid text with three parts, a catalogue of Navelcar’s art from a Dec 2017-January 2018 exhibition with accompanying ekphrasis, a graphic novel, and a collection of essays about the artist. The aforementioned exhibition, of the same title as the book, took place at Fundação Oriente in Panjim, Goa, and functioned as a retrospective. Curated by R. Benedito Ferrão, who also edited the book, the exhibition’s display of sixteen works, culled from various periods of Vamona Ananta Sinai Navelcar’s life, spoke to the legacy of the artist whose studies and career took him to the various locations in the Lusophone world named in the exhibition and book’s title. The volume examines how Navelcar’s artistry emerges from his crossing of three continents, while tracing how his art testifies to these diverse contexts as being constitutive of Lusophonic cultures at multiple global points that are not limited by geography. Indeed, in employing the concept of “Many Lives,” the book mirrors how the artist himself returns to his life experiences as a transnational subject, using these as a source of inspiration. Navelcar’s oeuvre, draws from his personal history; his career spans Goa’s past as the capital of the Estado da Índia, metropolitan Portugal and Luso-Africa which were colonially connected to Goa, as well as the contemporary moment. This rich subject matter is explored in the book by a diverse range of art historians, critics, writers, and even other artists.
