A Reverie Of A Memory by Anilakumar Govindappa
Known for capturing small moments in ordinary life and expanding them into the extraordinary, in A Reverie of a Memory, Anilakumar Govindappa relives the moments of his distant and not so distant past spread across cities. Though not exclusively aligned with constructivism, through the colorful lens of his wild imagination, he tells an open-ended story, leaving much to the perception of the viewer. Diving into universal topics of home, love, and attachment, Govindappa’s practice is one of observations, including in the landscape of life, acknowledgement of the political. Take what you will from each depiction and let it stir you to recollect the overlooked pleasantness of a moment weighted in the world.
