IN THE REALM OF LINE, SPACE AND MEMORY
Kuldeep Patil, MASH India, 8 August 2022
Time in its elemental form has always been a site of contestation where it provides materiality to abstraction, narratives that shape events or sometimes birth a memoir of a journey. It is this ontological precarity of time that constructs and deconstructs vivid forms of art making. Be it philosophical musings with self, political motivations or assemblages carefully nourished on a voyage; when witnessed in the realm of art it is metaphorical, an action in mark making or an intention to delve into the poetics and politics of space. Autobiography of a Line at Chatterjee & Lal, Postcards from a Journey at Sakshi, and Events, Memory, Metaphor at TARQ in Mumbai is an opportunity to engage with these multifaceted concepts.
