Singed But Not Burnt curated by Ina Puri, presents Bangladesh-based artist, and photographer Shahidul Alam’s work selected from Alam’s archive in Dhaka, Bangladesh, comprising of his early experiments in pictorialism and later experimentation in exploring the political space. Focusing on the under-represented and minorities, Alam creates imagery that is at once protest, reportage, and art.
Anatomy of a Vegetable – Ruminations on fragile ecosystems, is Santiniketan-based artist Prasanta Sahu’s realisation of a new body of work. Each series within the show is an insightful rumination of everyday rural life – objects, memories, and desires intertwined with an undeniable bio-political matrix. Based on the experiences of his upbringing, skillfully interspersed with a documentation methodology, Sahu actively engages with the politics of representation and truths hidden from mainstream discourse.
Additionally, Emami Art represented Varanasi-based emerging artist Debashish Paul is part of the Kochi Biennale Foundation Performing Arts Programme curated by HH Art Spaces and Nikhil Chopra. The residency from 26 November to 12 December will culminate in performances from 13th to 18th December @ Dutch Warehouse, Fort Kochi.
