> DESCRIPTION

Matthieu Foss Gallery announces the opening of 'Bad Breath', an exhibition of photographic works and an installation by artists Sanjeev Khandekar with Vaishali Narkar. The show opens on the 13th of April, and will be on view till the 12th of May, 2010. A catalogue is being published for the occasion. It includes essays are By Gitanjali Dang & Sachin Kundalkar, a noted Marathi playwright and film Maker.

In this series Sanjeev Khandekar and Vaishali Narkar have used the refrigerator as a metaphor for the postmodern human condition. The photographs are large 'portraits' of refrigerators and their inards, synonymous of the duos ongoing social and political engagement. In the words of writer/curator Gitanjali Dang “The refrigerator is symptomatic of our racy routine, where convenience is a lifestyle choice. In colluding with convenience, we forego all concerns about our general well-being and get caught up in advertising jargon that touts frozen peas as fresh peas.

Bad Breath reminds us of what we already know and in doing so it alerts our noses to the smells exuded by the farrago of products lurking in the back rows of our refrigerators. The unlikely bounties of consumerism that draw us to densely occupied supermarket aisles also keep our bellies busy with knots of self-defecating confusion.”
