Posted 2/16/16

Found objects have always been secret allies for visual artists. They are stumbled upon and acquired, magpie-like, because of a private vision of “intrinsic interest,” to be teased out and made concrete later. Found photographs, too, have long since found their place inside artists’ private wunderkammern. Following the Box, an exhibition of a particularly curious origin now on view at the Indian Museum, Kolkata, brings the aesthetic power of found photographs front and center. http:/... [more]

Zakkir Hussain at Galleryske - Bangalore January 17th, 2015 - February 27th, 2015
Posted 1/21/15

Zakir Hussain’s latest works at Gallery SKE in Bangalore is a wonderful presentation of works to understand that originality can only be claimed as an unclaimed, seen as the other in the final omnipresent grand narrative of itself. The claim to originality that his works make in the beginning is by having a title ‘no title’.

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 prov... [more]

His multi-layered renditions whether they are paintings, prints or new media installations depict spiritual emblems reverberating against the more mundane manifestations of commodity culture.
