November 15 to 26 | Gallery @1AQ, Near Qutub Minar, Mehrauli, New Delhi
Three artists — D Priyanka (Delhi), Minal Damani (Mumbai) and Vineha Sharma (Delhi) weave intriguing tales of epic and science fiction in a faraway land. Minal Damani literally takes down the drain, tracing the journey of debris from mucky gutters into the deep blue sea, and the universes they occupy. We are the sky, and our bodily refuse such as strands of hair that escape our corporeality return to the sky. This preoccupation with mythologies of quotidian waste opens up to Vineha Sharma’s formal inquiries. If we were to imagine aesthetics for time, that too lost time, what would it be? Working with her own memories, especially those that are non-extraordinary, and the phenomenology of undocumented time, the artist invents a visual language that can salvage their imprints. This archeological enterprise excavating from the fringes of historical time yields to D Priyanka’s concern with epistemological frameworks that dictate our understanding of the universe and life forms.
