Constellations, Feb 13th to March 13th 2021

 

Constellations brings together eight contemporary artists from Bengal featuring Jogen Chowdhury, Shuvaprasanna Bhattacharya, Arunima Choudhury, Chandra Bhattacharjee, Arindam Chatterjee, Anjan Modak, Tamal Bhattacharya and Soma Das, and presents a range of practices.

The crises-laden world that mirrors brokenness also mirrors hope. The paintings of the celebrated senior artists in the show reaffirm this deep-rooted truth. Arunima Choudhury’s paintings in vegetable colours on handmade papers, create a languid world in which the figures are variously portrayed in their intimate, private spaces, undisturbed by the noises of the modern world.
