  • Red for Resistance

    She may come across as shy, even soft-spoken, but when it comes to her art, Soghra Khurasani is anything but. The Vadodara-based artist, who is exhibiting her third solo work, Cratered Fiction, at InKo Centre, is vociferous with her woodcut prints on paper—they are almost like emotional outbursts, depicting her frustration at how society treats personal freedom and women’s rights.

  • The Red Earth

    It looks like a wound has been framed and mounted on the wall. The vividness and ferocity of its reds and oranges indicate a raw and violent anger of the type that rarely finds acknowledgement in real life, no matter that it simmers beneath the ‘normalcy’ we value so much.

  • India Express: Unlocking Art. Part 2

    Museums and galleries are closed, but art certainly isn’t. In this edition of ‘Unlock Art’, we have picked virtual fundraisers, exhibitions and sales that are happening in India and abroad. There’s something for everyone here — a tutorial spanning 250 years of art history; exhibition-quality photo prints to get your art collection kickstarted; a homage to the great Indian master, Raja Ravi Varma; and, a sale of affordable works of art. All you need is your phone or laptop and your sense of curiosity. Mumbai-based gallery Tarq’s first online exhibition asks viewers to acknowledge the collective feeling of uncertainty and stillness that we have been catapulted into due to the pandemic. Titled ‘Resurgence’, the exhibition strikes its emphatic note through works by Apnavi Makanji, Aaditi Joshi, Clare Arni, Nibha Sikander, Parag Tandel, Ronny Sen, Sameer Kulavoor, Savia Mahajan, and Soghra Khurasani. Thane-based Tandel draws from his background as a member of the Koli community to create eternal circles of fish in Coast is Clear (2020). Khurasani’s landscape Skin VIII (2018), a woodcut print on paper with deep jewel tones, evokes the intimate connections between human bodies and nature. In Blued 3 (2019), Kulavoor picks the colour of the ubiquitous tarp that springs up in cities during the monsoon to convey the practice of jugaad. In these works and the rest, the exhibition explores the balance between humans and nature, suggesting that uncertain times can also work as a healing interlude.

  • Platform- Resurgence mention

    While the virus is consuming our screens and social media, we wanted to focus on the state of the world with humans temporarily taken out of the equation. It is interesting to see nature feeling free to finally breathe again, from more birds chirping to spotting dolphins, to cleaner air. At the same time, we are aware of the grave consequences the global shut down will have on the economy at large, and especially on already disadvantaged communities all around the world. In Resurgence, the works look at ideas of environmental degradation, healing in both urban and rural spaces, while acknowledging the stillness and uncertainty that surrounds us.
