Paris Autumn: Pushpamala N
For her second solo exhibition with Nature Morte, Pushpamala N. presented a new
body of works entitled "Paris Autumn." The centerpiece of the show was a 35 minute black-and-white film which has been constructed entirely from still photographs. The film will run continuously throughout the day at the gallery and was accompanied by framed photographs, posters and an installation which elaborate on the film and its imagery.
Diverging from the artist's previous work which examined Indian pictorial
conventions and models, this body of work is derived from European film noir and comic books, while utilizing presentation techniques of Indian cinema houses. The preliminary form of the exhibition took place at the Galerie Zurcher in Paris in 2006 and the film has been previously screened at the Bellagio Study Centre of the Rockfeller Foundation in Italy, and the Bose Pacia Gallery, Columbia University and New York University, all in New York City.
