Abhishek Dodiya’s sculpture, It’s not a Dharavi
What makes an artist different? For the creators involved in the exhibition, World Within, World Without, it is a blend of personal and communal experiences. Featuring 17 artists working over distinct mediums and styles, the exhibition that begins this week is hosted by the platform, Art Incept. Founder and director, Gayatri Singh shares, "The entire exhibition hopes to showcase the brilliance of emerging art, and mentoring and to promote emerging artists. It is conceived as a theme that looks into the world of art and outside of it."
Co-curated by Prima Kurien and Rahul Kumar, the show will feature works that explore the interplay between the material and spiritual realms through the lens of contemporary art. "The artists are expressing problems of reality - of ecology, conservation and the need to look at excessive use of resources, yet spreading hope." Singh shares that all of the artists at the exhibition are funded by the Inception Grant, which was introduced to support and mentor contemporary art in the country.
