DESCRIPTION

Sreshta Rit Premnath (b. 1979, Bangalore, India; lives and works in New York City and Williamstown, MA) investigates systems of representation in order to understand as well as challenge the process by which images become icons, events become history, or discourse becomes doctrine. Conducting rigorous research and working across various media, the artist ruminates on the histories of specific objects, sites, and people, such as the MGM lion, urban development in the city of Bangalore, India, and the Viennese philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein. Through unraveling and undermining the meanings of familiar symbols, Premnath renders them strange while also suggesting new possibilities for interpretation. The artist will present a new project in the Front Room.
