> DESCRIPTION

 

Project 88, in association with Nature Morte and Conde Nast India, is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new color photographs by Bharat Sikka. “The Road to Salvador do Mundo” is the title the photographer has given to a wide range of images, all shot in or near the small Goan village of the same name.

The images span a wide range of genres: landscapes, portraits, interiors and still lifes. What links all of the photographs together is both a mood and a perspective. The photographer presents the atmosphere and the inhabitants of this hamlet as characters in an on-going drama, multiple narratives are suggested but never revealed, connections are implied but always cryptic. The colors of the photographs are richly seductive, communicating the lush vegetation of the tropics but also an elaborated psychological foreboding.

Bharat Sikka was born in 1973, is based in New Delhi and holds a BFA degree from the Parsons School of Design in New York City. His photographs have appeared in a wide number of international publications including The New Yorker, Details, Time, I.D., Marie Claire (Italy), Vogue India and GQ India.
