Where India Dries Its Clothes by Karan Khosla

'Where India Dries My Clothes' is an intimate visual exploration born from a decade-long observation during my extensive travels across India. What began as an exercise that was simply visually interesting has evolved into a unique reflection on the intricate lives and landscapes that define this diverse nation.

Venue: Method Bandra

Date: 26th May - 30th June 2024

PAST EXHIBITIONS //

Mute/Unmute by Various Artists

Mute/Unmute emerges as an exploration of the present and the absent, and how that defines perception and anticipation. Does color dictate influence or does influence dictate color? What perceptions and expectations accompany the presence or absence of hue, and are they invariably accurate? Existence comprises a tapestry of experiences, yet does the decision to mute or embrace color carry implicit meaning? This exhibition scrutinizes the nuanced messaging underlying the presentation of muted and unmuted elements.

Venue: Method Kala Ghoda

Date: 20th April - 26th May 2024

Growing Pains by Revant Dasgupta

Through GROWING PAINS, the artist explores their experiences of coming to terms with adulthood, their process of understanding and accepting childhood trauma, navigating feelings of alienation and paranoia, and struggles with gender identity. Through memories of different phases of their life, the series explores the idea of taking common institutions of identity that are handed to a person at birth and deconstructing them with the objective of putting them together in a way that feels personal.

  3. Electric Floral Fantasy by Eeshani Mitra

    Extending beyond traditional narratives and formats, the body of work is a window to a surreal world, which is scanned and sometimes moulded in wax by the artist. Interested in the physical interaction of the viewer and the work, Mitra’s wax-works invite the viewers to touch and investigate the surface of her immersion experiments.
