Happy In The Hippocampus by Rohan Joglekar

Method is delighted to present 'Happy In The Hippocampus' by Rohan Joglekar at Method Kala Ghoda, opening on Thursday, November 10th. The body of work departs from our waking reality, foraying into surreal dreamscapes.

Known for his surrealism, Joglekar dances between acceptable reality and make believe. His works, characterised by figures and peculiarity, serve to rekindle an appreciation for unbound childhood wonder, awe, and bewilderment. While some of his pieces edge towards the disturbing, the fantastical use of color plays with the mind, making the notably bizarre a source of pleasure.

With his debut solo show at Method, Joglekar completely skips the line and invites us to pirouette into his fantastical world of imaginary characters, places, and scenarios. A nod to the dream inducing center of the brain, the hippocampus, Joglekar reinforces that the strange is not necessarily scary. In fact, it's a place we all deserve to reside from time to time. As we embrace our imagination, it is critical that we observe—and hopefully embrace—without apprehension or preconceived notion. The exhibition will feature Joglekar's paintings on the ground floor, and an immersive installation with his digital works on the first floor - presented in association with Hefty Art. November 10th - December 4th at Method Kala Ghoda.
