The artist’s curiosity often takes him / her to navigating unknown paths or (re)navigating known ones. The trajectory formed is one that varies with the artist’s observations and interests. Physical aspects of a space, or cultural mannerisms — what is it that clicks with the artist and becomes a point of departure. Foreign lands or personal domains can both be challenging in this regard. Personal domains maybe even more so, since unlearning or disregarding certain knowledge and habits maybe required in order to start afresh.
How are these personal trajectories then translated so that glimpses of the artist’s experiences are made available to be experienced by the viewer? Is the viewer able to see through the lens of the artist and relate to, recognize, and associate with her experience? These are some of the questions this exhibition, and the writings in the accompanying publication, try to explore.
