On till 30th June | LATITUDE 28, New Delhi
Latitude 28 presents a group show titled ‘The World Awaits You Like A Garden’. The exhibition showcases around 35 works of five artists Gopa Trivedi, Manjot Kaur, Priyanka D’Souza, Radhika Agarwala, and Wardha Shabbir. The exhibit emphasizes the relationship between humans and nature through a modernist paradigm. The curatorial advisor for the exhibition is Sugata Ray.
Artist Gopa Trivedi’s art questions the parameters for being Indian. She is showcasing 20-25 illustrations, part of a long-term project where she intends to create a visual album of plants that have been introduced to India through various traders and waves of Invasions over centuries.
Manjot Kaur’s drawings, paintings, and time-based media summon the mystical, scientific, and absurd to draw attention to current socio-political predicaments and the sovereignty of ecology.
Priyanka D’Souza uses satire and fiction as a tool to subvert and redress lacunae and exaggerations in mainstream history.
Radhika Agarwala’s practice finds her exploring concepts of fragility and permanence – using material from both nature and civilization. She draws inspiration and collects samples of nature from every city she lives in, incorporating them into her practice.
Wardha Shabbir pays a collective homage to the struggle that is quintessential to women’s lives in the medium of miniature painting.
