Event Description : 
Bhavna Kakar presents 'Three Tales of Another Microcosm' D Priyanka (Delhi) | Minal Damani (Mumbai) | Vineha Sharma (Delhi)

The three artists presented here carve otherworldly spaces of abjection and allegory upon which the viewer is able to project their own regressions —those sentiments that we are only able to project on to what we perceive to be alien to our identities— and in their narrative emancipate their ‘subject’ into sublime terrains.

Minal Damani takes us down the drain, quite literally, 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. The interconnectedness of all organic material surfaces in her narrative. Recognisable strands of hair morph into glutinous bursts of colour, almost as if they had been endowed deliverance from menial corners. This series is an extension of Damani’s ongoing articulation of the intangible ‘self’ through its environment.

This preoccupation with mythologies of material vestiges opens up to Vineha Sharma’s formal inquires. She meticulously constructs an iconology for memories, intuitive perceptions and lost moments. Inspired by the non-realism of forms in traditional arts and craft, her universe consists of humanoid figures that remind one of the likeness with which we have inscribed mythologies of worlds other than our own. The estrangement provoked by her visual language further reinforces the exclusion and otherness that aspects of our realities assume in our collective consciousness, including moments of transcendence or questions regarding life after death.

This archeological enterprise of 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. The artist is more concerned with the simple forms of life from which complex organisms have emerged such as algae and lichens, reminding us of the need to climb down the evolutionary ladder to basic DNA structures to derive methodologies that can decode human biology. This self-conscious process mirrors limiting empirical frameworks that prescribe our experience and consequently unravels the structural logic that is implicit in our everyday lives through mythologies of an elsewhere.
