In this current moment, we find ourselves physically restricted, yet connected more than ever before from within our four walls. Suddenly our private spaces are turned (both physically and virtually) public, as we work, eat and socialize all within the confines of our homes. It is in this reality, that we cannot help but think of the role of architecture in all our lives. As we grapple to understand what a socially distant world will mean, we reflect on the once transient histories that echo in our stories.
After looking at the effects that the quarantine has had on the outside world in our first exhibition, Resurgence, our second online show, Navigating Geometries, is decidedly inward looking. Through a single work each by the artists Boshudhara Mukherjee, Muzzumil Ruheel, Pratap Morey, Saju Kunhan, Samit Das, Tanmoy Samanta and Vishwa Shroff, we try to continue to explore, contextualize and make sense of our current landscape.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of live conversations and a talkthough of the works on Instagram, in an attempt to recreate some of the physical programming that we are all missing out on at the moment.
