Show & New Works and all excited!!!
Whats up? Poojie – Arcna & I caught up on phone last week and we discussed about our show in Jaaga, mid-Jan 2011. How is it going? Pooja, what are your plans for the show. Arc & I were discussing that maybe we could put monitors with blog alongside our paintings
I have plans to start a new series of work, especially for Jaaga and shall be at it obsessively. The curation theory workshop just got over two days ago. So was super super busy with it. But it was a great experience. I had to present two papers, one a reading by J J. Charlesworth, a practicing curator, scholar, critic from London who spoke about the blurring of distinctions between the curator-artist and institutions, the blurring of the power and identity. The 2nd one was a curatorial proposal by me… The basic premise of it was that I suggested that no writing as a concept note should be given to artist. Instead the concept note should to take another form – no words used. In this case, I presented shapes. It went very well. I got a good response.
I am setting out to do a research for the new body of works for our show. My canvases wont be too big. Around 1 feet x 1 feet. Around 12. As and when I start things I am going to post it on the site. Each stage. Pooja, put up what you are doing now. I guess Arcna is starting the work for the show after her return from Berlin, I think early October. But look forward to your posts, Arc. I am just concentrating on this, till December after which i am coming to Bangalore.
Looking Forward hearing from you both soon
