DESCRIPTION

Abhidnya Ghuge’s installation begins with an original wood block carving that is printed on thousands of paper plates, which are transformed through simple folds to create a larger organic form. For Ghuge, the meditative process of carving the woodblock, printing and transformation of the paper plates suggests the possibility of preciousness and indispensable beauty. The site-specificity of the installation allows the form to change, thus echoing the global and ever changing nature of “home” in today’s fast pace, mobile culture.
