New Delhi, Jan 23 (ANI): To celebrate habitation and reconstruction of memory, Gallery Espace launched an art exhibition, ‘Diary Entries’ curated by Gayatri Sinha.
Artists such as Nasreen Mohamedi, Bharti Kher, Nilima Sheikh and Sheba Chhachhi were amongst a few to be present at the exhibition.
In Diary Entries the tiered environs of Gallery Espace has been offered to the artists as a space, as a habitation, or as a reconstruction of memory. In turn they have responded with the richness and diversity of their practice. Artists have made perfect use of text and references to poetry and literature extensively in their work, creating evocative spaces that allow for both word and image to collaborate and create meaning.
Renu Modi, Owner and Founder, Gallery Espace said, “Diaries Entries is an exhibition that is dedicated to those women, confined to domestic spaces, the demands of work or child rearing and the diary was often a shadow life, allowing for conversations even across time, sometimes.”
“Very often it served as a parallel life, for women who practiced painting or photography or theatre, slipping easily into the form of autobiography. The exhibition will talk about the personal journey of each artist, which is very interesting,” added Renu Modi.
The exhibition will run through January 23rd to February 20. (ANI)
