What is it that makes me ‘me’ and you ‘you'? Broken down to the basic unit, rounded off to the last decimal point, what of us will remain if our being, this Sisyphean burden we bear daily, is removed quite out of the blue? A few strands of hair on the bed we sleep in, the smell of skin under the sheets, our well dug footprints on the soles of shoes, tossed indelicately once beyond the familiar threshold of home. And perhaps a note. Poignant in its brevity and aptly mystifying. But will these... [more]

WORDS: A USER'S MANUAL begins with the word, keeping the implicit promise in its name.  Simply put, the driving concept at the core of this ambitiously curated show is this: words, as we know them, denote specific reality, whereas ‘art’ is essentially devoid of any such intrinsic meaning and is appreciated in terms of individual inference and interpretation. To illustrate this point further let us consider the word ‘Cat.’ When I say the word ‘Cat’ I refer to the furry purring creature that dr... [more]

Amina Ahmed at Seven Art Limited November 4th, 2011 - December 10th, 2011
Posted 11/14/11

At the core of artist Amina Ahmed’s practice is the basic human desire of mark making. Marks, she concedes in her artistic statement, are her way into a universe attuned to symbolic, ritualistic meaning. For this particular exhibition, ‘The Call,’ currently on at the Seven Art Limited gallery till 3rd December, Ahmed uses a variety of ways to explore the process of mark making, using mediums as varied as charcoal, ink, gum, tempera, paper, light and shadow, all attuned in ways best described as ‘...

Aakash Nihalani at Seven Art Limited September 24th, 2011 - October 22nd, 2011
Posted 10/16/11

24-year-old Aakash Nihalani is a Brooklyn-based artist and a recent graduate from New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture. For the most part of the three years since he started showing publicly, Nihalani has been working with the somewhat atypical medium of fluorescent electrical tapes, primarily using them to sketch site-specific geometric doodles on various public surfaces around the city of New York. Nihalani’s works consist of ‘isometric rectangles and squares,’ which enclose space an... [more]

Posted 9/18/11

Ronny Sen’s  ‘A tale of three rooms’ is a visual memoir of the photographer’s life in the three rooms that constituted his existence in Siliguri, West Bengal, during his stint there as an undergraduate.  In contrast with the youthful exuberance that such an autobiographical context might suggest for a college student, the images in this series communicate an exhaustive sense of boredom and confinement. The site in question, the three rooms, are photographed with addictive rigor and laid bare in... [more]

Posted 8/28/11

Kolkata-based photographer Ronny Sen ruthlessly lays bare his inner and outer universe through images both raw and stark. Armed with his personal visual vocabulary of urban tedium and the monotonous ordeals of everyday city life, Sen presents snatches of his reality through frames both breathtaking in their composition and shocking in their tactile honesty.  Below are excerpts from an interview. Parni Ray:  Let’s begin at the beginning.  How did photography happen to you? Ronny Sen:  My introdu... [more]

Posted 5/16/11

Photoink’s latest exhibition, Dileep Prakash’s 'What was Home' is a series of black and white photographs of some of the oldest, most renowned boarding schools in India.  Prakash’s artistic intent for this collection stems from a semi-autobiographical source: he was himself a student of the illustrious Mayo College of Ajmer for a good nine years of his boyhood. The photographs in this series therefore resonate with a marked affection, an unmistakable, indulgent nostalgia that can only rise out of f... [more]

Reena Saini Kallat at Nature Morte, New Delhi March 8th, 2011 - March 26th, 2011
Posted 4/4/11

The display for Reena Saini Kallat’s “Labyrinth of Absences” at Nature Morte Gallery opens with a three-dimensional portrait of a man in a fez hat.  It takes a fraction of a second for the uninitiated (such as I) to gather that this face has been crafted, with dexterous delicacy, simply out of rubber stamps, painted but still retaining a visible trace of their original engraving announcing  a range of names and designations. The stamps act as building pieces for Kallat, lending the face both lit... [more]

Posted 12/13/10

The fundamental crisis being dealt with in Experimenter Gallery’s latest offering is put forth at the very onset through the show’s title – Where am I?. Evidently, the question here concerns both literal and metaphorical space. Spatial ambiguity has furtively become a characteristic component of our post-modern, post-globalization existence. Locational specificity lost out significantly with the advent of present day architectural structures such as the shopping mall or the airport, which... [more]

Neatly tucked under the illuminated splendour of Sbarro, bang in the heart of the spiffy GK-II M Block market, Seven Art Limited gallery is, undoubtedly, the best kept secret of the neighbourhood. A slew of refreshingly experimental shows in the recent past have helped this art spot gain a sturdy foothold in the populous gallery market in Delhi.  Its most recent offering "Words, Wounds, Women," an exhibition of Pakistani contemporary artist Amna Ilyas’s sculptural works, is the latest feat...

Nature Morte’s latest exhibition, “Gamut,” seeks to present a complete range of visual artistic possibilities through the work of three artists, Ramkrishna Behera, Basist Kumar, and Nidhi Agarwal, who each represent different points in the spectrum of painting’s potentialities today.  “Gamut” succeeds largely due to this complement in contrast.  The fact that the works on view grab significant attention in their own right also doesn’t hurt. If we were to classify and thereby simpli... [more]
