What's Happening

It's time to go beyond the print and explore the questions about our body and its politics. Ace scenograpger, designer and photographer, Swarup Dutta has used the visual medium to weave through these questions of identity and to seek some important answers in his first photography exhibition titled Kaw (the first Bengali consonant, which also incidentally starts all the question tags like ke, kikabe, kokhon and others).

A photography exhibition exploring the body on three different planes - Khelna-Bati  (role playing), 'Armour of Weakness' (the struggle to assume identities) and 'Otherwordly' (the body moving beyond the well-constructed world) - this will map the artists personal journey as he explores the myths of identity through everyday objects. The exhibition also explores the idea of nudity and gender in our country. Curated by Paula Sengupta, attend this month-long show to question the every day myths that we build around our identity and body.
