Event Description : 
It Was Never Concrete, a solo show of Ayesha Singh

The exhibition presents Ayesha's new works. The series of works on view explore how the specific social, political and historical context of the city is manifested in its architecture.

The
exhibition, ‘It was never concrete’ presents new works made by the artist in response to
the city of Delhi, where the artist currently lives and works. The series of works on view
explore how the specific social, political and historical context of the city manifests in its
architecture. Singh’s works reveal the power structures embedded in the cityscape, and
the aspirations and destiny that they embody.

Curatorial Statement by Anushka Rajendran:
“The shape-shifting force of history assembles and reassembles itself. And built architecture is perhaps an ostensible symptom of its ebb and flow, aggression and benevolence, knowledge and folly. In Delhi, an ancient city that has seen the rise and fall of empires, regimes that ran on megalomania and machismo have been malleable to similar narratives that have replaced it.
Structures that emanate grandeur are not static, but destined for occupation, disuse and
regeneration. Their domes and columns collide and adhere; embellishments drop into the abyss of verandahs that have lost their footing; stairways that dreamed of the stars become enveloped by the refuse of industrial dreams; institutions emerge to crumble. Ayesha Singh explores the fragility of “ornaments of authority1”, their transience, impermanence and inevitable shifts in the meanings that they embody.
