Godh: in the lap of nature

Collaboration with Ishan Khosla, Pradyumna Kumar and Pushpa Kumari.
Exhibited in Common Ground: The Serendipitous Happenstance Project, curated by Helen Rayment, OED Gallery, Mattancherry, Kochi, Kerala, India, 10 December – 29 March 2017.

Digital print with Eco-Solvent Ink on coated cotton fabric panels, 9 panels, each panel 188 x 107cm.

An invitation to exhibit in Kochi at the time of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (in Common Ground: The Serendipitous Happenstance Project, curated by Helen Rayment) presented a chance to focus on a long-held interest in drawing and build on existing networks to initiate a new collaboration with three Delhi-based creative artists. It also proved to be a fertile laboratory for exploring a central aspect of my work, the possibilities art allows for meaningful connection or relationship between individuals of different cultural identity.

Process: drawing & detail

Photography by Mandy Ridley except Mandy and Pushpa reviewing drawings early in the process – photo by Ishan Khosla.
The work was completed as part of an Asialink Arts Residency Project supported by Arts Queensland.
