7 pm : Performance by Himali Singh Soin with David Tappeser 
Countering an algorithmic aural visualisation of the 1,265 semi-colons in Virginia Woolf's, 'The Waves', the performance uses the digressions of marginalia and the spontaneous structures of improvisation to examine the book as a machine of immortality, as a purveyor of radical politics.
This performance is part of the panel ‘Artists’ and Books’ for The Book - Ensemble, a part of TAKE ON WRITING series, conceptualized by Bhavna Kakar. The Ensemble convenes on 18th and 19th December 2016 at Sanskriti Kendra, New Delhi.

Event Description : ​​
Bhavna Kakar presents "Weaving Shards" Recent Works by Niyeti Chadha Kannal


"You see through the glass. Two planes diverge, converging. There is light in the room, the lines bend. They hide, like a cobweb in a dark corner. They breed atop each other, till order spills and reason surrenders. The tension is not released.
In an age that lives in cyberspace, breathes in words such as windows, walls and portals, where architecture is liquid, relational and ultimately hypothetical, Niyeti Chadha makes mesmerizing sequences of lines, equally material and imagined, upturning our preconceived perspectives, inking the rational in the intuitional.
At one level, Chadha’s collages are cut and layered with sharp edges, inherent with the accelerationism of urban landscapes, the repetition, speed and technosocial processes that characterizes contemporary capitalism. At another, they are minute, delicate, crafted with deep care. Drawn with a hyperfine mechanical pen from memory, they are formal yet full of feeling, precise while they are entirely subjective. As her perspectives distort, angles fold into one another and vertexes venture towards vanish points, the external landscape becomes representative of an interior confusion or desire."

- Excerpt from Himali Singh Soin's essay 'The Future will Fold'
