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’. This is very interesting as the self proclamation of having no title negates the presence of the trace of the past. If there is any coincide... [more]

Published in Acts of drawing are sometimes summed up as dirtying the paper delicately,1 but Ayesha Sultana’s drawings in Outside the field of view, her first solo at Experimenter, Kolkata, mounted from the 9th of May to the 26th of June, are anything but delicate. Sultana ‘dirties’ the paper vigorously and obsessively, while reining in her mark-marking within perfectly geometric shapes. Nine graphite drawings of various si... [more]

Posted 9/25/13

After the first quick round of Art Synthesis, the eyes quickly bookmark certain works and artists for the latter, slower rounds but the mind, hungry for a single thread of narrative, doesn't find any. On contemplation, that turns out to be the mind's problem, not the artists'. So used our minds are with picking up a curator's text on entrance and viewing the entire exhibition through that lense, that they suddenly feel ill-at-ease when they have to be the meaningmakers themselves. It turns out tha... [more]

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]

It is this basic principle that underpins the "Blind with Camera" project that aims to integrate the photography of the visually impaired into mainstream society. The projects founder, Partho Bhowmick, explains “Photography by the visually impaired reve... [more]
