LADY AIKO

Block 15, Lodhi Colony, Opposite CMYK in Meherchand Market

Lady Aiko wanted to depict a strong female character in her work, one with a direct connect with India. Hence, Rani Laxmi Bai. She wanted her work to be a collaborative process, hence she roped in 15 volunteers, all of which assisted her in cutting 299 A0 paper stencils, after which they helped in filling the entire piece with the artist’s characteristic bright palette.

He hoped to express one of the truest things about India, which he discovered on a prior visit. He says, “There’s a chaos but inside it there is an order. Those birds are the same as us, moving around all the time, if they stop they will crash…I’m one of the birds”. He used the architecture of the building to catalyze this concept, depicting the speed and the energy that moves with the birds converging in at the centre of the building.

1010

School of Planning & Architecture, ITO

1010’s work always has a strong sensitivity for the spaces he works in. His approach, strictly architectonic, considers which kind of abyss can be open in the space he interacts with. At the School of Planning and Architecture, his work is inspired by ancient Hindu architecture and “The Fractal Brain Theory” by Wai H. Tsang. His portals bring the viewer to fall into what was a flat and hard wall and to break all the boundaries we think we have. The colours articulate each perceptual level, guiding the public’s gaze from the inside to the entrance of the portal and vice versa.
