In this interaction, the artists occupy the various rooms and spaces of the site, an old indo-Portuguese house, and respond to each other&rsquo;s diverse bodies, the environment, the architecture and personal memory.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The impulse of the collaboration was to explore and respond to the landscape of Goa, during the relentless and saturating monsoons, the lush green environment of the towns, which though beautiful, is harshly juxtaposed against the visuality of garbage strewn along the hillsides and small streams and starkly contrasting habitations.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Dismantling personal and habitual movement, they abstract, deconstruct and reconstruct these responses through improvisation with space, site, and found objects, embodying a range of physicalities and aesthetic possibilities. It seeks to answer the question: What could be rebuilt from the rubble left behind?</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>&lsquo;</em><strong><em>It is likely the house will be&nbsp;dismantled&nbsp;piece by piece with a large crane and a scaffold to support the remaining structure</em></strong><em>&rsquo;<strong>&nbsp;</strong></em>will have its debut at HH Art Spaces in Goa with Yuko Kaseki, Nikhil Chopra (Goa), Madhavi Gore (Goa), Romain Loustau (Paris/Goa), Venuri Perera (Colombo), Shivani Gupta (Mumbai/Goa) and Sajan Mani (Kerela). The performance will be taken to Khoj with Yuko and two of the 6 artists Nikhil Chopra and Romain Loustau.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For more information about HH Art Space, please visit their website <a href="" target="_blank">here.&nbsp;</a></p> Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:42:05 +0000 Satendra Sitaram Mhatre - Jehangir Art Gallery - August 22nd - August 28th Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:38:50 +0000 Dilip De - Jehangir Art Gallery - August 15th - August 21st Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:37:59 +0000 Sonal Ramesh Salekar - Jehangir Art Gallery - August 8th - August 14th Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:36:47 +0000 Gopal Gokul Pardeshi - Jehangir Art Gallery - August 2nd - August 7th Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:35:35 +0000 - Jehangir Art Gallery - July 16th - July 25th Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:34:06 +0000 Ritu Gupta - India Habitat Centre - Visual Arts Gallery - July 29th - August 3rd Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:21:31 +0000 Group Show - India Habitat Centre - Visual Arts Gallery - July 25th - July 28th Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:21:28 +0000 Subrata Gangopadhay, Shymal Mukherjee, JitenHazarika, T.Venkuntam, sunil das, Laxman Alley - India Habitat Centre - Visual Arts Gallery - July 22nd - July 24th Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:21:24 +0000 Max Streicher, Meenakshi Sengupta, Narendra Yadav, Parag Sonarghare, Prashant Pandey, T. Venkanna - Gallery Maskara - July 15th - September 30th <p style="text-align: justify;">The last 3-weeks have been nothing short of transformatory - in every respect of the word. It was a period of accepting the profound loss of my father, accompanied by deep reflection and quiet contemplation. A period spent examining some of my most important relationships - with family and friends, with work, with myself, with life and ultimately - with death.<br /><br />One of the most fundamental of life&lsquo;s great mysteries is TIME and how we choose to spend the remaining time we have left on earth - without knowing just how much of that time we really do have<br />left!<br /><br />Three weeks prior to my father being diagnosed with stage-4 pancreatic cancer we were together in the hills of South India. It was the month of May. Flowers were in full bloom, the weather was beautiful and the scape was picture perfect. Plans were being made for more such adventures to farther away places like Africa and Australia. My father looked so joyful, with a camera always in his hand and a smile always on his face. The mood was upbeat and there were no signs whatsoever, that the end was so near. But life had other plans. Within twelve days of the diagnosis, he was gone. Just like that.<br /><br />So how much time do we really have to live the plans we make? Nobody has an answer to this question. Sometimes it takes death to make us examine life more closely. To measure it more accurately and to understand it more profoundly.<br /><br />I have had the privilege of spending the last 10-years of my life in furthering contemporary art in India and internationally. I did this zealously and to the best of my abilities. This was accompanied with a sense of deep fulfilment and pride - in building an art program from the ground up. And in all these years, we strived for aesthetic authenticity, in the face of a largely apathetic local audience. Many of our artists have achieved levels of international recognition and respect, that is worthy of praise and admiration. It has been ten glorious years - with art and artists resolutely at the centre of my universe.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">So it is with inner conviction tinged with sadness that I communicate to you all - that this will be the last show at Gallery Maskara. I am simply unable to commit to the next ten years, in the same way that I committed the previous ten. The circumstances that I am now faced with, are completely different from what they werejust a few weeks ago. As a result, my time needs to be reprioritised and reallocated in other directions.<br /><br />Thank you for all your encouragement and advice over the years. I am truly grateful for the role you have played, in helping me navigate this absurdly wonderful world of art.<br /><br />I look forward to seeing you for the opening preview on Thursday July 14th. This 45th and final show curated by me at Gallery Maskara features artists Max Streicher, Meenakshi Sengupta, Narendra Yadav, Parag Sonarghare, Prashant Pandey and T.

However, serious problems beset the judicial system, making it dysfunctional, unaccountable, inaccessible and insensitive, especially to the poor. The award-winning film by Sumit Khanna is an attempt to decipher the judicial process from the standpoints of all the stakeholders: people who are the seekers of justice, lawyers who are the intermediaries of justice and the Judiciary that dispenses justice, in the process, understanding how far removed we are from the Constitutional vision of justice.</p> Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:07:07 +0000
