I CANT IMAGINE I CANT IMAGINE A double channel video installation with objects by Gabrielle Baker (Australia) and Badri Prasad Prajapati (India) This is not an exhibition about binaries, even though on the surface it may appear so, with one projection of a human-less, Australian, outback landscape, and the other, a Varanasi cityscape streaming with cars and people, filmed outside the gallery on Raja Sir Motichand Road in 2018. For me, it is a display of interconnections (spiritual and energetic) between species, animate and inanimate, and emanating from two different cultures - two artists, one Indian the other Australian. I have always made work about the animal – in particular, the human as animal. I have an inherent belief, since childhood, that we share creativity with all species, that creativity is in fact inscribed in our animality. We probe this creative space with an introspective gaze but our view is clouded by uncertainties and ambiguities, even though our anima

AGENT ORANGE / HANUMAN Terry Burrows This series of paintings continues my interest in the fascinating theatre of activities, both religious and secular along the Ghats of the Ganges in Varanasi. The playful title - Agent Orange refers to the omnipresence of Hanuman murtis which are painted with a generic bright orange color. There is a curious mischievousness about these idols due to their often lumpen and cartoon-like appearance - either due to the naivety of their construction or, after many added layers of thick orange paint, the original sculpted details have disappeared.

The often abstracted rendition of Hanuman murtis echos closely my semi-abstract interest in form. My primary painting practice includes multi-layered, minimal-palette paintings, which work between the abstract and the figurative. The morphic shapes that inhabit my canvases, whet

If in a sacred land a traveler… Shaurya Kumar is an artist of recollection who immerses himself in memoirs and imagery of history, context and time; who works in shadows of memory and pulls up fallen and forgotten objects, even if temporarily. He is an avid collector of memories and an observer of frameworks. Employing diverse sets of tools, media, techniques and processes including print, drawing, sculpture and installation, his studio practice focuses on a phenomenological understanding of an object and space, while revealing a labor-intensive process in art making. Indicating notions of presence and absence, these works play with architectural ruins, transient ephemera, and contextual displacements. Kumar is particularly interested in the aspect of human intervention; the mark that a person leaves that changes history or the association to the object. He appropriates not just materials, but also the traditions. His work adds to a new meaning by sometimes destroying the object
