Kural 6.

Kural 6. is an Ondru experimental event series held at the Ondru Studio. The word Kural comes from the Tamil language and Kural 6. embodies the expression and consciousness of artistic voice through the five traditional senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch that evoke the sixth element of 'thought'. Kural 6. event series is an artistic collaboration between Ondru and invited or visiting artists who share our philosophy.
