Kiran Subbaiah has oft in the past featured himself in his videos, as he does in his newest solo show, Narcissicon. Over time (and Narcissicon has taken fourteen years), his various avatars could not be contained - choosing a single channel video as a format, his newest work splits the other Subbaiah's dreams, fantasies, playful stagings merging into a concatenation of droll events that explore the theme of narcissism, but ironically, the work never really takes itself too seriously. There is... [more]

Kiran Subbaiah wanted to kill himself in Suicide Note (2006) because that’s the way truly famous people rolled, according to him. While viewing Narcissicon (2012), it seemed that he had made a miserable botch of a suicide. Because this time, his selves have multiplied, taken up residence together and freely borrow clothes from each other, get into scuffles, stabbings and passive-aggressive arguments. Kiran Subbaiah, a contemporary artist based in Bengaluru has been delighting and provok... [more]

Imagine that Time was born wearing a frock, morphing, as he grows older, into a dress, then a gown. The frock is simple, the dress has a few studs and some intricate cuts, and the gown is bedecked with lace and beads and zippers—all the frills that a society will impose upon that which began simply with itself. The Sidereal is that tangential reality at the centre of the circle of Time had the frock not turned into a gown: On the Sidereal ponders the nature of Time were it stripped of the value... [more]

With the Asian Games less than 50 days away, and India’s capitol in a state of utter disrepair—not to mention the scores of underpaid and overworked migrant laborers who have flooded Delhi, as well as the country’s other metros, to build not only shabby stadiums but countless high-rises - one would expect a few more signs of popular outcry.  But street graffiti is conspicuously absent.  The buildings, even when crumbling and monsoon-stained, are largely left unmarked by political sloga...
