New Delhi: Latitude 28 presents New Zealand based artist Nandita Kumar’s first solo show in India titled Let The Brain Fly at LATITUDE 28, F-208 GF, Lado Sarai New Delhi from December 18, 2010 till January 12, 2011.
‘Let the Brain Fly’ charts a surreal course of a psyche's evolution within the invisible neuron-scape. The white cube encompasses a labyrinth of manifestations in terms of mixed media works on canvas, animated video and installations. A visual story-board, created in tandem with the movement of the defining premise, ‘the brain’ leads through processes of evolution and mutation, beyond the constructs of the material world. The artist through these renditions culls collages of the timeless world and poetically draws inherent correlations between the self and the various dimensions of the cultural spectrum.
Nandita Kumar holds a joint Bachelors Degree from MS University, India and Auckland University, in the Elam School Of the Arts, New Zealand and has completed her Masters Degree in Experimental Animation at California Institute of the Arts, in Los Angeles.
