The group exhibition at Gallery 7 is out to test your senses in more ways than one. Seven, to be precise. As part of their latest group exhibition, seven artistes use seven media to toy with ideas that have taken roots in their minds. Curated by the Chameleon Art Projects, the exhibition, 7, comprises paintings by Sajeev Visweswaran, an interactive media project by Nirit Zer, photographs by Sameer Tawde, a film by Kurnal and Anand, installations by Puneet Kaushik, designs by Mrugen Rathod and sculptures by Krishna Murari.
Going the family way
Visweswaran, who did his Masters in printmaking from the MS University in Baroda, says his works are instant reactions executed by his nib gliding across the paper, tracing overt representations of his personal reverie and nostalgic recollections. “The journey of my art is demonstrated by the compositional order illustrating the meditative bonding between me and my grandmother, right from my student days at the Delhi College of Art.
Murari, on the other hand, chooses to look outside than in, and says his sculptures, titled Storyteller, will narrate bitter experiences of the underprivileged in society, who are cheated of their rights by politicians. “The shift in power benefits only a few. I hope that, through my works, I can highlight how the shift in power affects the masses,” says Murari.
