> DESCRIPTION

For his second solo show at GALLERYSKE Sunoj D explores the ideas and emotions behind agrarian activities and the interactions between man and nature. Deeply influenced by the bucolic environment he grew up in Sunoj investigates lines of exchanges, relationships, reactions and the politics that affect and contextualize person-place-environment on multiple levels. The art works address metamorphosis as a multi-directional process that often leads to familiar change.

Artist's Statement

I have a vivid memory from my early childhood, that of holding my grandfather’s hand and walking in our fields in the morning. I grew up in this kind of a farming environment, developing along the way a very strong relationship with the land. When in my art practice I look at the natural, geographical and social environments, I see them in the context of my personal history and the way I have always connected with the land. I attempt to apply these ideas and emotions behind agricultural activities to explore the relationship between human beings and nature.

My special interest lies in everyday practices that, because of their routine and repetitive nature, become almost mechanical and sometimes invisible. I am interested in exploring the lines of exchanges, relationships, reactions and the politics that affect and contextualize person-place-environment on multiple levels.

In A Forgotten Carpentry Lesson and a Love Song, I look into the metamorphosis of what is familiar and common into something that is again familiar and common. The changes that are taking place are not necessarily unidirectional. The metamorphosis can be, and often is, two-way.

Sunoj D
