DESCRIPTION

Art Musings presents a solo exhibition of Nalini Malani (1946, Karachi), one of India’s best-known senior experimental multimedia artists; who has from the very outset, given the alternative voice a platform in her politically engaged art. The exhibition features paintings as well as a shadow play, comprising 30 turntables and reverse painted cylinders, as well as a single channel video work. Building up innumerable layers of fragmentary images into dreamlike and allegorical constellations, Malani’s work can be interpreted as a series of phantasmagorical tales. They are charged with critiques of violence, repression and contradiction that plague contemporary society, without becoming didactical but opening up thought provoking interpretations for the viewer.
