DESCRIPTION

Rossi & Rossi is pleased to present Stargazing – an exhibition bringing to London a discriminating body of works by five prolific Indian women artists: Anita DubeChitra GaneshMithu SenNida Abidi and Jaishri Abichandani. Provocatively addressing issues of gender, race and power, Stargazing is a fantastical contemplation on hidden realities at the personal and cosmic level. The exhibition includes installation, sculpture, drawings and prints, with new works created for the show and a full-colour catalogue featuring a critical essay by Stargazing’s curator Jaishri Abichandani.

Applying a Hindu tantric lens, the artists approach their work with a sensual, subversive and dark femininity akin to the energy of Kali, the fierce goddess associated with empowerment. 

With a hint of black magic and science fiction, Stargazing’s works reverberate between the mortal and mythic, seductive and repulsive, personal and political, interrogating the body, transformation and fantasies of power.
