A show that addresses individual space – in varying expressions; irrespective of one’s place of residence.

Modern man is for the most part removed from his habitat in some way or other. From small town to big city, from one state to another, from one country to another – sometimes in a single generation, sometimes more. It is the conversation with his environment that builds points of reference and metaphorical stages of familiarity. It is this conversation, rather than daily living that creates his experience of inhabitancy. Thus the “phaneron” described by Charles Pierce, i.e., the world as filtered through our senses and bodies – irrespective of the universe as it exists in its physical form, is the focus. This exhibition attempts to trace the interpretation of space – real or metaphorical that is a reflection of reality shaped by individual perception and cultural filters.

The point to ponder would be if the impact of smartphone and social media is morphing this space, through neglect, creating a virtual void and if as a consequence, intensifying communication with the self for the lack of relational anchors. This exhibit will comprise of works by the following international artists who have given form and interpretation to a space, real or metaphorical that is a reflection of their own reality.  53 artists from all across the globe explore the concept of home and habitat, sense of belonging or the lack thereof, shifting paradigms of locality and habitat.
