Time and Image

Ranjit Hoskote, Domus, 31 December 2020

"I imagine Tanmoy Samanta as a jeweller working in a cone of light, his desk secured against a darkness that spreads out in every direction and has many names: war, forgetting, genocide, fear, exile. Samanta makes images that we may set as talismans against this many-named darkness; finely tuned and delicate as they seem, observe that these images have sharp images on which unsuspecting viewers may cut their hands."
