Engaging space and material

first_imgThe show is a discourse between the  artistes spanning two different generations and their unique way of engaging with space and material, unbound by conventional art practice or the preconceived language of academic expression. Kolleri’s works in copper wire weave together, lost and found objects with a history and archaeology, being assembled in a new time and space to have a different contextual meaning and value. Puneet on the other hand, weaves in different materials to create an autobiographical work – personal, viscera and stirring. Meshing together materials unconventionally, they create a new value to the final product and it is one of the main preoccupations of both the artistes. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’They share a passion for the material they engage with and rejoice in the process of creation, allowing the material to master them and in the process procreate a form that is abstracted from the materials themselves. This new character of the work is the artistes’ intense involvement in the process of creation.The shape that things will take is at once, abstract and primordial. As Valsan puts it ‘Knowing is in action’. For both artistes, Puneet in his act of blending, sewing and amalgamating different materials and Valsan, in his process of weaving in and out of spaces and wires, the process of manual creation becomes the aim and the resultant artwork, only a consequence. Kolleri has participated in solo and group shows and lectured throughout India, Europe and the United States.Kaushik, who lives in New Delhi has conducted a wide variety of art workshops in India, Paris, California, Singapore, Dubai, Japan and the most recent one being at Stuttgart, Germany .When: 22August -30 September Where: Gallery Espace, 16, Community Center, New Friends Colonylast_img read more
