‘Bodies never lie’ – Agnes de Miller

Visual Art and Performance. Presence and Absence. Though seemingly unrelated pairs of words, there is an intrinsic undercurrent of rhythm which connects practice based disciplines towards each other – this often brings out various connections, connotations, and inferences. All 12 artists exhibiting engage with this very undissolved threshold – a careful precipice on the edge of two disciplines (visual and performative) presenting a very subtle exchange between the various models of exaggerated expression. This kind of creative articulation which navigates between these two modes, also moves towards the masked broader question of what is real construction and what is not – what is perceived as a model of truth and what is not (in both a materialistic, philosophical and theoretical climate).

UNDISSOLVED explores this terrain which is both the point of departure and the portal of arrival – with performances, Live art, installations, sculptures, and video works which explore the subject either with the presence or the absence of the human body in them, which then becomes the ‘object’ of exploration.”
