Loss and Transience
Through May 2, 2021
Visiting hours: Tues-Sun: 10:30-17:30
Hong-gah Museum, Taipei
Gigi Scaria's films No Parallel and Political Realism, along with Avijit Mukul Kishore’s film Garden of Forgotten Snow on Nilima Sheikh’s art practice are now showing at Hong-gah Museum in Taipei in the group exhibition Loss and Transience. Curated by Lucía Imaz King and Rashmi Sawhney, the show brings a selection of works in documentary film and artists’ video by ten contemporary artists/filmmakers living and working in India today, including artists of Indian heritage based internationally. The films are linked by their protagonists’ state of transience at key moments within the films providing numerous insights into how day-to-day realities are being catalysed to affect change, but also to reflect on present political and environmental concerns. Collectively the films are examples of rendering new worlds through improvisation which cannot exist ‘in the real world’; an approach that is re-constructive and playful; allowing for adaptation to the challenges of the environment whilst critically questioning our role within it.
Accompanying the exhibition is an Artists and Curators Talk on 20 March 7pm-9pm TWN, 4:30-6:30pm IST 11am-1pm GMT including a talk by Gigi Scaria. Link to Join: https://videoclub.org.uk/loss-transience-curator-and-artist-talk/
