Issues of Home/Nation/location/migration and identity have been key issues explored by Indian artists in recent times.
Home, the exhibit, however is conceived with the intention of mapping internal/intimate spaces – the abode of the private self – through the specially installed environments/artworks by Mayura Subhedar, Minal Damani, Shantamani, Surekha and Prajakta Potnis who live and work in different cities and varying milieus.
Home: a space to recede in, or to gaze out of; a place of comfort or a place of confrontation … home is the abode of reverie or the source of nightmare. This exhibition aspires to evoke emotional climates of memory and recall – a loop in which past and present blur, in keeping with changing emotional/social/political climates. Within each room, drawings, paintings, objects and photographs come together to form highly personal spaces of universal significance.
