LANDS, MYTHS AND CULTURES

Art Houz Chennai’s latest show ‘Of Land, Myth and Culture’ brought together seven dynamic artists who, through powerful visual narratives, explored the unlimited capacity of thoughts and ideas that sustain the adversity of time and human condition.
For the show, they engaged centuries of popular culture – from Greek mythology and Mughal legacy to the more pressing questions on ‘self’ and cultural identity – to create works that reshaped experience. Taking influence from their surroundings and personal experiences and combining them with the stories they grew up listening to, the participating artists – Bhaskaran Bara, Chithra E G, Jitha Karthikeyan, K L Leon, Madhu Venugopalan, Mithra Kamalan and Sanam C Narayanan – exhibited works that portrayed the dichotomy of perceived time and legacy. Riddled with mysteries and nostalgia of times long past, the works were of culture that has withstood the sands of time.

MONOLOGUE OF MEMORY

MONOLOGUE OF MEMORY-MONISHA MOHANRAJ

My art work feeds on the deep concept of memories which opens up new possibilities to explore. I always believed that mind or manas is not something that belonged to the brain but it dwells deep within every cell of the body. The English word ‘Mind’ doesn’t say anything because it is just one generic word, which does not describe different dimensions of what the mind is. In yogic culture, there is no such thing as mind, just physical body and mental body. What we are calling mind right now is a certain combination of memory and intelligence. There is more memory in our body than in mind. Today if I carry the looks of my grandmother and talent of my great grandfather then it is through this memory.

We don’t remember a thing consciously but our body remembers one hundred percent. Our mind is not capable of this kind of memory. Our thought process however is only the data that we already gathered. That means, we can never think anything new, you can rehash it, you can produce permutations or combinations of it but we cannot produce something absolutely new. It is not in the very nature of the thought to come up with something new. It can only recycle the past. The works are based on a carefully selected thread of memories which lingers within, something that everyone could associate with their life. The forms that appear in my work transcends directly from those memories. It is the only proof from past to prove that one has lived a life so far and it acts as a guideline to the future. When mind is erased, then there no link to the realm of one’s past or his roots. Similarly anything that exists on this planet has a memory too.

As endless as this ideas go, my interest are only with object that holds memory from the past. Let it be the memory of first day at school, first crush, first failure or first success, it is all shelved deep within us, molding us. Yet, it remains dormant until something triggers it. Something that helps us recall our past; a simple toy in a toy shop which one must have used when he was a kid or grandmother’s hand knitted bag that came into your possession, constantly remind of her. This mind as a pendulum which osculates from past to present fascinates me; especially that particular object that connects the past and present moment. This object became the subject matter. Further the transparency of the medium allows visual play in light. It also allows the image to levitate. The image, when it appears in the canvas seems to be raptured or broken; symbolically indicate that memory tend to fade over time, constantly replacing with another. I also believe that everything on this planet is connected with one another. So, I associate myself with other animals for its distinctive character. The lines and strokes in my paintings are patterns driven from nature.

SCAFFOLD

Self, memories and perceptions…

Scaffold has been a space where we three artists interact through senses and thoughts. It provided the opportunity to explore and exhibit our inhibitions and experiences. The previous ventures talked about social, economic and geological observations into art forms. As we grow through interactions, experience and self-questioning the identities become more of a voyage on the self, memories and perceptions…

As moving ahead, we are not dithering ourselves from talking the truthfulness we inhibit. The three artists here might be individuals in gathering and learning but as a team we put forward oneness. This show talks about the identification we have found in us, and how we got hold of these identities and explored ourselves.
Shinod Akkaraparambil, takes the most petted animal as his metaphor to communicate the goodness and evilness in the society and environment. He metaphors ‘ dog’ and transforms visuals with ‘mating’ to speak about the good and bad.
Sujeeth Kumar Sree kandan. Has confined to memories of his travels to mountains and forests and also attempted to question himself about Time& Space.
Vijay Pichumani speaks about his self and body as an art form which transverse into the experiences and feels, the dilution of the wholeness, the body into the nature.

Between Black & White

Between Black & White
an exhibiton of woodcut prints - vijay pichumani

"I work in colour sometimes, but I guess the images I most connect to, historically speaking, are in black and white.
I see more in black and white - I like the abstraction of it.
" ……. Mary Ellen Mark.

Vijay Pichumani is known for his contemporary style of woodcuts and this show is primarily about showcasing his early series of wood cut. Vijay known for his massive size of woodcut, here in this show we will be displaying around 20 prints.
Soon after college, his family wanted him to earn money and contribute to expenses. So he went back to his village. There, amidst the quarrel about his future, Pichumani heard tens of crow's quibbling outside. Ï felt it was similar to the fight in my family” he says. Rushing out he found one crow dead and hordes flying around in circles, cawing. Enthralled by the scene, he began to draw the birds. Soon after he convinced his family and came back to Chennai. Here he found a dead crow. He picked it up brought it back to the studio and started studying it, thus beginning his crow series. For four years he studied nature and the elements.
“The art of printmaking is a visual exploration of using nature to portray my eye from my perspective. I follow woodcut a relief printing technique in printmaking. The wood used for printmaking is a gift from nature. I combine my thoughts, feelings, and emotions with the wood, making it meaningful and vibrant says the 30 year old artist.

The Journey Within

“The only journey is the one within.”- Rainer Maria Rilke

At some point or another, we have all embarked on that journey – the one that eventually comes back to the self; where we reflect and subtly shift the gaze between the outward and the inward; all the while searching for that one moment where we find ourselves amidst the fog. ‘The Journey Within’ is a narrative of many such journeys.

Featuring the recent works of seven artists, who in their own unique ways, dig deep within their selves and the world around them, ‘The Journey Within’ is a collection of stories and experiments that mark the shifts that the artists have made in their quest for the unknown; the many twists and turns in their paths that have consequently led them to where they are now. The works presented in this rather eclectic examination of the self and beyond, portray singular viewpoints, yet manage to contain within them multiple realities and world of possibilities – all subtly hinting that the journey is in fact the destination.

SandhyaGopinath_Open

I have always been fascinated by the ephemeral nature of movement. It’s why my paintings have free flowing forms used repeatedly to show motion in its purest form. It also helps make visual connections throughout the composition. I also draw inspiration from the Modernist tradition, and the concept of emphasizing a material's 'competency', in my case, the flatness of paint and its saturated pure colour.
Everyone can read a painting. They speak louder than words. But for some reason, we hesitate. Born to interpret every visual that crosses us, my art is open to you.
To me, it is a play of optical illusions, a play between space and visual movement that I have created, by exploring a few key compositional elements with different geometric formulae. It is a step towards creating a language for me that expresses my characteristics, my personality, my emotions and my beliefs.
To you, this is it is your own Rosetta stone, to be deciphered in a new way, every time you pass by, in a world with no right answers; in a world where only your answers matter.

COMPOSING DEGENERATION

Michael’s creative world comes aliveat the point that veers away from the one which assures us that all ourtroubles are over and that we are indeed leading a happy life. A time when wehave lost faith in all that our refined world holds sacred: a cup of tea, acigarette, in fact we can begin our enquiry from any of these, from any whichwhere. Dead flies that float in a cup of tea; or fledgling birds that have justcome into the world. To view both these sights as one requires a taut state ofmind and one that succeeds in transcending time.
To critically transcend false emotionscreated by social institutions and organisations might appear transgressive, andit is the precise opposite of that falsity that moves Michael. Anyone can startfrom any direction, in fact, to work shred the curtain-threads which maskcomplex social relationships, until they give way and snap. In Michael’s art, adisembodied general affection – freed from the hold of male or female bodiesand their expressions - seems adequate to this purpose.
Familiar words such as mercy, charity,affection; acts that connote consent, opposition and contradiction, andconstitute their every existence - his lines weave into art these as well as whatappears ‘new’ and ‘changing’, a paradox that finds expression and comes alive inthe sky of Adam’s garden, an overwhelming blue that swoops down on us.
If Michael’s art births a moment thatis without birth, death and direction, calling on memories that transcend time,this act of creation which adds colour to that essentially colourless moment isnot against the order of Nature, rather it is against our gods.

ANATOMY OF FORKING PATHS

Anatomy of Forking Paths
by ReenaSainiKallat

In the course of his short story ‘The Garden of Forking Paths’, author Jorge Luis Borges puts forward a seemingly simple proposition; what if, in the face of a situation that presents before us multiple options that we need to choose from, we could opt – simultaneously – for all of them, instead of picking one and thereby eliminating the others.

At the crux of such a temporally liberal system is the possibility of diverse strands of futures created in turn by each option chosen, each strand of future irreconcilable with the other and each proliferating and forking, perpetually, toward innumerable futures themselves. Every thread of event thus unraveled would be unlike the other not only in terms of incident but also at the level of essence and import, making them all individually unique in terms of meaning. With regard to creation such a system would translate into the heartening opportunityto embrace the possibilities posed by both,our successesas well as our failures, the trepidations andthe certainties, with equal aplomb. It would render redundant the unremitting struggle to convert ideas into actualities and free us, once and for all, of the constant process of selection, deletion and censoring we must subject our thoughts to in our efforts to realize them.

Unlike Ts’ui Pen’s protagonist in the Borges story we,however,haven’t the freedom to tread downeveryavailable path at a crossroad.The artist’seagernessto fulfill the infinite prospects presented by a work thusrequires a perpetual return to that critical juncture at which paths areopted for and meanings decided upon, with the eternal faith that the passage of time will permittaking up new roads and uncover new meanings.

This collection, excavated out of the last half a decade of ReenaSainiKallat’s practice, is a rumination on time.It is a manifestation of the artist’s meanderings through her own past labours in the hope of rediscovering thedecisive interstices at which choices had formerly been made.It is here that the paths fork, and trails, once denied and discarded, may again be pursued. This revisitationis an attempt to witness the imprints of time on one’s works.But, itis alsoan absorbed effort to recomposemeanings, to injectnew significations and narratives intothem by bringingtogether the outcome of various moments of one’s practice alongside each other. The quiet aspirationof this bid toretrace, to reconfigure,is to cut through the sinews, the skin and the bones of one’s own artistic journeyand uncover, in the process, the secret anatomy of forking paths.

Timeline

Going beyond the unknown

“A journey in search of the self...though the self is too small, the journey never ends”.

For contemporary Indian artist Jayakumar G, the world is inhabited by what falls between the conscious and the subconscious mind. It is where the journey of the self begins, it is where the nuances of life are born, and it is where colour meets the mind in the landscape of the heart.
Born in 1960 in Bangalore, Jayakumar is an alumnus of the Ken School of Art, Bangalore Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda and the Royal College of Art, London. He has been an integral part in building Kannada University at Hampi and has been an indelible part of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Baroda. He has also been instrumental in setting up the Department of Visual Arts at Bangalore University, where he currently serves as Professor and Head of the Department.

Studying Jayakumar’s repertoire is like embarking into a world that is vivid in its interpretation and surreal in its appeal. Naked men and women engulfed in worldly chaos, fear and insecurity transcending the human mind, ghoulish symbolism rampant with mummified effigies and the human skull were what defined his early work. It witnessed the artist’s own fears and desires hovering between dream and fantasy. His later works transferred that intensely personal experience into an easily accessible common consciousness.

This is the uncertinity of life that he aspires to convey through his large canvasses that befit the limitless realm of his ideas. What draws us into his world is his dextorous handling of space and colour, and his technique suffused with impressive strokes and luminous colours.His paintings are further enhanced with stylised linear contours, abstracted backgrounds and the use of rhythmical ornamental motifs loosely floating above the picture.

“TIMELINE” is yet another “stop-over” in his destiny path, where he pauses to reflect, ponder, assimilate and learn. No interpreters are required to read Jayakumar’s thoughts and perceptions on canvas, as the artist never overwhelms his audience with crowded visuals. On the contrary, every figure is almost isolated in its space,giving it an iconic sensibility

The exhibition inaugurates on 7th February, 2015 and is on view until 22nd February, 2015
