The artist lives and works - Exhibitions - Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke

4000 Kilos of Basmati rice, metal cubes containing painted cast-iron figures of Hindu right-wing fundamentalists, persons in camouflage who respond to the click of a mouse, the multiplied self-image of a man inside the trial room of an up-market shopping mall in an Indian metropolis.  From August 11 to 28, Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke,  Bombay, in co-operation with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, presents  installation, photography, painting and new media art by ten artists of Indian origin.  

Theories of globalisation and postmoderism have explored the diverse databank of sources used by these artists, and the validity of their social, political and cultural contexts, with the theories often becoming 'larger' than the work of art.  

The Artist Lives And Works attempts to steer the attention back to the art, and the individuality of the artist, and to remind us of the intensely and richly practical nature of art, as an exploration of the inner world of the mind.

With works by Aji VN, Anju Dodiya, Jayashree Chakravarty, Jitish Kallat, Justin Ponmany, NN Rimzon, NS Harsha, Nataraj Sharma, Shilpa Gupta and VN Jyothi Basu.

In co-operation with House of World Cultures.
