You avert your eyes when I ask you if you're really no longer in love with those that broke your heart. You twitch a little after you've stolen, heave and churn inside before accepting that job you don't want. It is the gap between the truth and your realisation of it that makes for dramatic irony, that makes for the narratives within which you swallow and strut through life. And if you lived sensitively, the truth – the direction of the grain upon which it's all written – reveals itself.... [more]

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]

The Pill is a Personification. The Pill is a Hyperbole, an Archetype, a Symbol. It’s tiny, systematic, circular self has flirtatiously traveled across the globe, morphing old wives tales about women’s cycles, reproduction and sexual intercourse. And how the tiny tablets find themselves in an art gallery in Delhi only hints at their locomotive stamina. Particularly fascinating, across the exhibition, is the number of artists that chose to employ the shape of a circle, in image, metaphor and meani... [more]

Interview with Mithu Sen  
by
10/18/10

India, Oct. 2010 - Back in 2007, the Delhi-based artist Mithu Sen had achieved what most art graduates only dream of: financial success and critical recognition. She had had solo shows abroad and was represented by India’s top galleries…but she was increasingly disillusioned by the market-centric logic of the art world. Such angst is not new, but Mithu’s solution was. She decided to begin a new project called “Free Mithu,” in which she offered free works of art—with authenticity certificates and mark... [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...

Drawing is a structural expression articulated through motifs to create a unifying visual code cutting across linguistic barriers. For Adip Dutta, artist and curator of “Writing Visuals” at the Harrington Street Art Centre, Kolkata, drawing is a relentless language, in pursuit of other modes of expression such as painting for instance, never quite the end in itself; rather, it is a blue-print, a surrogate for writing in words. The exhibition is a comprehensive congregation of artists, with the centra... [more]
