> DESCRIPTION

Art Musings opens their next exhibition, Exquisite Cadaver on 20 October 2011 with a solo exhibition by Raghava KK. This is Raghava’s third solo exhibition with Art Musings after the very successful Brooklyn Bound R-Train in 2009 - 10 and Drawn and Quartered in 2008. Says Raghava KK of this current body of works, “Exquisite Cadaver is a series of artwork that has arisen from a recent diasporic dilemma. I perform many roles - artist, Indian, American, father, husband, parent, child, student, teacher. Even within the art world itself, I am a thinker, a philosopher, an ingénue, and also a seller of beauty, a businessman, a politician. So fragmented is my identity, that I find it rather caricatured to identify with any one predominant role. Exquisite Cadaver is a game that represents a more complex search for identity and truth. Now, I play exquisite cadaver with my fragmented selves, creating a series of mythological characters, borrowing from tradition, history, and even my own nostalgia. Over the last year, each of these works has been created simultaneously in parts, fragmenting the storyline that runs through the series. Through this body of works, I am creating the mythology of the post-post-contemporary diasporic Indian, one that becomes coherent only in its entirety.”
