One usually associates the intention of any art produced with the intention of being exhibited in a gallery, museum and public space such as a mall or a street. Studio and site specific art is a brave and relatively new and rarer concept that is still in a more experimental stage since they have limited viewership and still more restricted marketability. Mukesh Sharma’s latest works have been done in his studio in the back lanes of Vasant Kunj area of Delhi in two rooms of his studi... [more]

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]

20130127150404-rise-and-shine Me, etc. : Narcissicon by Kiran Subbaiah

Kiran Subbaiah at Chatterjee & Lal Gallery December 21st, 2012 - February 9th, 2013
Posted 4/14/13

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]

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]

Posted 3/12/13

Visitors to Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum Mumbai this summer will be confronted by the vision of a giant cobweb made up of oversized rubber stamps on its prim Palladian facade. Though it bears the name of Reena Saini Kallat as the creator, imaginative children might look around for an escapee giant spider from the neighbouring zoo.  This public work of art, Untitled (Cobweb / Crossings), is a collaboration between ZegnArt / Public, an initiative of the Italian Fashion Major Ermenegildo Zegna, and th...

Barbara Ash’s recent collection of works challenges stereotypical ideas about women    2/2 "I think it’s depressing that girls are constantly surrounded by messages that are telling them they are not acceptable unless they follow this narrow orthodoxy,” said Barbara Ash, whose sculptures and drawings have strong roots in women’s struggle with the image centric world. “It marginalises the majority and puts a focus on superficial issues rather than in development...

Death is a Dialogue between The Spirit and the Dust. "Dissolve" says Death—The Spirit "Sir I have another Trust"—  Death doubts it—Argues from the Ground— The Spirit turns away Just laying off for evidence An Overcoat of Clay.  - Emily Dickinson  Throughout the course of art history, an artist appears with a quest to reinforce the connection between art and life, between the relentless and the ephemeral, between general philosophies and personal interpretations. Yardena Kurulkar is one such artist,... [more]

Zenita Komad at The Loft At Lower Parel January 11th, 2010 - January 31st, 2010
Posted 1/27/10

  Raw, filial, erotic, curious and conceptual are words that might reveal the depth of Zenita Komad’s art—but only in the morphology and movement of the letters themselves. Here is a space where all your expectations will disprove themselves; where your mind and body will fuse and play tricks on your sense of time and space. You enter THE LOFT, (where Zenita’s work is displayed as part of a residency sponsored by The Fuschia Tree),  and everything appears “inside-out”. You pass ‘drawings’ of Ze... [more]
