DESCRIPTION

Ranjini Shettar's large installations draw inspiration from natural forms recalling the surreal beauty of magical creatures and sensuous landscapes. She gives imaginative form to natural phenomena as diverse and unique as the interaction of light and water, the luminescence of fireflies and the kinetic response of plants to sunlight. Evocative titles such as Heliotropes and Scent of a Sound allow us to engage with the essence of the work, which emphasize handmade and preindustrial processes, but employ the most sophisticated technical and scientific processes in their assemblage. Celebrating both the natural and the man-made, the works recall the interface of art and science which was one of the founding ideas of the Museum. The show is a continuation of the Museum's exhibition series 'Engaging Traditions'.
