Silence. Space. Terrestrial at Gallery Latitude 28 offers stories of ecological turbulence
Bhavna Kakar is hosting the show titled, ‘Silence. Space. Terrestrial.’, of select works by Diptej Vernekar, Prathap Modi and Rushabh Vishawakarma.
"‘Silence. Space. Terrestrial.’ is a take on social ecology. The show builds a dialogue through these intersecting pillars bringing together works of three artists who share stories of ecological turbulences," offers Satyajit Dave in a note about the show.
"It attempts to ascertain the position of humanity within a physical cosmology. The exhibition aims to move towards a multi-layered cultural understanding of Capitalocene by incorporating works that articulate the notion of ecology and aesthetic principles, thereof, reinterpreting the multiple hegemonies of the land," says the note, shared by the gallery.
"The show is eponymous of Prathap Modi’s print that fuses the elements of the cosmic and terrestrial. Through the representation of a male figure and oversized animal, his works open metaphors of a space of fathomless time and place with the sonic effect of cosmic silence," says the note.
"Diptej Vernekar’s drawings explore the land, inhibiting objects and silent surroundings that are constantly in flux. His works capture fleeting moments as they pass down to memory lines, thereby weaving visual poems," it adds.
"The practice of Rushabh Vishwakarma deals with the effect of a demolished home. His lightbox panel looks at the role of language with the nature-nurture relationship in the context of homeland," the note explains.
The exhibition continues till 31st December, 6.30 pm - 9 pm. At Gallery Latitude 28, F-208, First Floor, Lado Sarai, New Delhi - 110030.
