Shilpa Gupta

Galleria Continua

27 Oct 201813 Jan 2019

Galleria Continua presents one of the most internationally well-known Indian artists, Shilpa Gupta. Shilpa has engaged with art in its participatory, interactive and public dimensions for over two decades. She has persistently mapped the defining power of social and psychological borders on public life and memory. The works engage with the continued power of repressive state apparatuses, and the seductions of social homogeneity and deceptive ideas of public consensus enabled by emerging mediascapes. Thus, they make visible the aporias and incommensurabilities in the emerging national public sphere in South Asia, as well as elsewhere. Creating a visual grammar of a conceptual nature, Shilpa Gupta weaves the intensity of writing through her complex works, which include objects, performances, photographs, drawings and interactive videos.
