Event Description : 
EXHIBITION "Montage" a solo show of Collages by Kavita Iyengar curated by Jitendra Padam Jain

About the Exhibition: Collages are a powerful tool where the juxtaposition of different images is able to create a new narrative that conjures and conveys messages and emotions. Kavita’s collages contain numerous concepts and elements that break boundaries and speak to people. From contemproary urban landscapes to colonial pasts, from women’s struggles to flights of fancy, from travellers’ diaries to a search for peace, the collages contain an assortment of frames. Often light-hearted to suggest deeper meanings, they are visually harmonious and thought-provoking.

She has been working on her own since 2011 and since has participated in group shows and illustrated books, including publishing Delhi Old and New: Inkline Drawings, in 2013.
