Score For A Film attempts to be a meld of sounds dedicated to recordings of low frequency transmissions, a sweeping soundtrack, noise patterns, historical recordings, and a fictitious narrative performed by a team of voice actors, interspersed with semantic language shifts and conversations covering ufology, space...

Live wiring Mukesh Sharma’s exhibition explores our conflicted relationship with technology. His artworks are mostly made from tech waste, reports Time Out A muddy road leads to a decrepit shanty, there are a few cars and bikes parked nearby; a few labourers are at work and a stray dog or two are napping. The shanty’s door is ajar, tiny bursts of colour can be gleaned on the walls and a little cooler whirrs in the corner. Unlike its neighbours, it isn’t a makeshi... [more]

Last year, at the India Art Fair, artist Mukesh Sharma displayed two very interesting paintings. Titled — Anarkali Disco Chali and Hello Honey Bunny, the mix media canvases had computer keys pasted on them in a circular motion, depicting the influence of technology in our lives. Continuing with the same concept, Sharma now has worked on a site-specific art project — A Terabyte-ing Serpentine that opened in the Capital yesterday, and is curated by Unnati Singh. A huge tree hangs inver... [more]

It's a strange merger between nature and technology — a world where computer monitors act as planters and computer keys sprout from branches. "We are enslaved by technology and the simple keyboard button is taking over our lives. Rapid technology change and its outpourings alter the aesthetics of a society. In this context, it is becoming increasingly important for me as an artist to synthesise global visuals into a local vocabulary," says the work's creator Mukesh Sharma. The postgra... [more]

(Image: Jiaur Rahman, Rainy Day, 2012, Watercolour on Paper, 11 X 15 Inches; © Jiaur Rahman)   Jiaur Rahman (b. 1979, West Bengal, India) Rahman’s watercolours are delightful renderings of nature, with the aim of capturing a single moment for eternity. The artist has a close association with rural Bengal, and desires to immortalize the beauty of its fast changing landscape. Not one to be bound to the rural surroundings, Rahman has also captured the cityscape in his works, aiming to portray... [more]

Group Show at Jhaveri Contemporary April 24th, 2013 - May 24th, 2013
Posted 5/20/13

  ‘Considering Collages’: a survey show of collages is exciting by definition because it’s a rare occurrence. Collages, especially the paper-and-glue  ( French ‘coller’ meaning ‘ to glue / to paste’) kinds,  which are often  playful experiments in forms, materials and contexts made from found objects,  tick exactly the wrong kind of boxes as far as the contemporary Indian art scene is concerned.But the post 1947 collagescape at Jhaveri Contemporary with 14 artists ( born between 1882 and 1976 ) from...

Parul Thacker at Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke March 19th, 2013 - April 29th, 2013
Posted 4/28/13

After a visit to the wonderland of forms that’s Parul Thacker’s first solo at Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke, the whole process of meaning-making ( of contemporary art) is bound to come under fresh scrutiny. All the available texts on the artist and her works, struggle to put her into a context, and visibly strain to find a broader theme beyond the striking yet enigmatic forms. And it’s not hard to see why. Her background is unconventional (Bachelor’s in textile design at Sophia Polytechnic Mumbai, then a course in surface ornamentation a... [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]

Posted 3/31/13

Being overtly spiritual doesn’t seem to be the norm  in the contemporary art world. It’s amusing, considering that contemporary  art world is more or less a faith-based system that combines ‘an uneasy godlessness with a religious memory’1: the  cult of a faithful few, visiting hallowed premises of esoteric objects, where meanings are made and unmade by the high priests of scholarship. Thoughts like these are bound to cross one’s mind when one is en route to the first Indian solo exhibition of Sh... [more]
