This annual show of a premier group provides an insight into the condition of contemporary art in India and the opportunity for many questions regarding the idea of “identity” and to what extent we stretch ourselves? Frustrating full perception, the art language shifts from spectacle to presence, a psychological space where there is absence in spite of presence; and that presence is the sole key to a state in which ratiocination of any kind is suspended- the inadequacy of the faculties is accepted and the viewer advances humbly towards faith. Here concrete objects become tokens of a concealed desired principle.
The works in this exhibition of 14 artists of this premier group posit a sign well beyond the historical enterprise of the horizon- we keep in mind that this is not a strategic coalition of practicing artists here as they recite to us the entire dramatic scale of their passions and appetites. In these entire works, one can see eroticism and joyfulness as means of revolt, not an exercise of power but a tumultuous upheaval of limitation which may be called ‘sovereignty’. No wonder gifted with a sense of emotivity, transcendental emotivity, so grand and precious that makes our soul tremble before the pulsating drama of their work.
