Nothing and beyond
Artist Niki Hingad who has had successful solo shows in Mumbai since 2008 presents a new series titled Shunya. It will be showcased in Mumbai at the Jehangir Art Gallery from October 16 to 22, 2013
The exhibition is being presented by Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Mumbai.
The concept of Shunya or void existed in Hindu philosophy andthe Buddhist concept of Nirvana and denotes attaining salvation by merging into the void of eternity.
This could translate a positive sense of emptiness where the mind is free and expansive.
It is compared to the sky, which is constant in our lives. Niki Hingad’s works are her interpretation of this nothingness and yet a constant.
