EXHIBITION : Latitude 28 presents "I Hope To Match Your Furniture" Recent Works by Sumit Roy

“Our Democracy is broken and there is no single person who can fix it. Politicians are like actors on a broken stage that come, perform and walk away. They all stumble on the same broken planks, they all fall flat on their faces while the Audience laughs at them, makes memes about them and basically disses them every opportunity it gets.

An Arnab Goswami will swoop in and tell you that the planks were broken when Manmohan Singh was on stage. Some panelist will pipe in to tell you that Nehru and his dynasty is the one who broke the stage. Columns after columns will be written about the epic fall the latest actor had. But nobody is willing to get up and say, “Screw the actors. Let’s fix that damn stage.”

We want to ask you, The Audience, to go onto that stage and see those broken planks. We want you to scream and shout about the shitty state this stage is in, scream about how it’s ruining your show and not allowing your favourite actors to perform in the best possible way they can.”
— Text by Meghnad S, Vikram Bhattacharya, Shibesh Mehrotra (Consti-tuition)


About the artist: An alumnus of MSU Baroda, Sumit Roy's practice is firmly rooted in the mural traditions of the art school and its concerns with the local context. Yet, he reinvents this inherited aesthetic on his canvases in a language that is boldly inspired by global and mainstream popular culture. He speaks for a generation of urban cultural practitioners who grew up in the face of globalization and corporatization. The media landscape in India changed dramatically with its opening up to the global economy and with the emergence of Star TV, and MTV, who in the early years appropriated entertainment from American media for an Indian audience. Confronting with the reality of an industrialized nation whilst occupying the Indian context, Sumit Roy juxtaposes an aspirational visual universe and the cult of global stardom with quotidian sights and attitudes from his immediate locale. The same approach extends to his music, where he uses the subversive, trans-continental form of hip-hop to articulate ongoing contemporary political anxieties in India. As an artist working with sound, text, and image, he is able to tap into a range of sensibilities while defying them all.
