Memory's cut; Its Deep Embrace

What Makes It Awesome?

The Gujral Foundation in association with Outset India presents Remen Chopra W. Van Der Vaart's solo exhibition 'Memory's cut; Its Deep Embrace' at its experimental site 24 Jor Bagh in New Delhi.

Through this exhibition, the artist will reflect upon her personal journey of migration by questioning notions of home, lineage, space and time. She will trace the history of objects and spaces which once lived, through multi-layered artworks that create contrasts of real and endorsed time. She will delve into the history of personal spaces and its memory using writings, maps, objects, poetry and sculptural works to respond to the emotion and idea of home.

The artist will transform 24 Jor Bagh with personal objects to punctuate the exhibition by recalling family stories of Iran, Rawalpindi and Shimla, as narrated to her by her grandmother. The artist is inspired by architecture and constructs complex monochromatic, performance-based montages that are significantly drawn from the aesthetics of theatre. The artist uses patterns of Persian carpet to overlay a sculptural topographic landscape that evokes ideas of travel, lineage and rootedness. Elaborating on the textile tradition where stories, symbols, tools and skills are transferred within the family, the artist’s work bridges the past, present and future, where time is seen as a continuous loop of events.

“The exhibition is a poignant chronicle of the artist's life that interweaves personal archives, notions of home and memory. Her work is a unique assemblage of intimate moments, poetry and personal objects that were passed on from one generation to the other.” – Reha Sodhi (Curatorial Advisor)

"I am very pleased to announce my solo show in Delhi presented by the Gujral Foundation. I will be transforming 24 Jor Bagh into a personal space that will encapsulate memories of home. Viewers can look forward to a unique assemblage of multi layered artworks that will evoke notions of home." - Remen Chopra W. Van Der Vaart

The exhibition will be on view till February 24 from 11 am- 7 pm (Closed on Mondays and national holidays).
