Art and its dimension

Art and its dimension
Volte’s Per Emanuelsson and Bastian Bischoff (Humans Since 1982) will take you through a magical journey with their unique concept of A million times, a kinetic work with 61 clocks put together into one big instillation. Ian andRichard ABell (Based Upon) will allure you with their work inspired by natural and urban landscapes, explorations of archetypal forms, patterns and by the narrative histories woven within a place or group of people. Francesco Clemente’s work Taking Refuge depicts the fulfillment of basic human need for shelter, nomadic yet fashionable tent shows a very different and distinctive approach to art.

Among other recognised Indian artists associated with Volte Art Projects are Ranbir Kaleka, Nalini Malini and Sheba Chhachhi.  Kaleka, will be showcasing his paintings, work on canvas, in oils as well as mixed media, are almost surrealist in their treatment of scenes from everyday life. Nalini Malini’s work is influenced by her experiences as a refugee of the Partition of India. Characteristics of her work have been the gradual movement towards new media, international collaboration and expanding dimensions of the pictorial surface into the surrounding space as ephemeral wall drawing, installation, shadow play, multi projection works and theatre.

And lastly, Sheba Chhachhi, photographer and installation artist, her photographic work is predicated on building a relationship with her subjects, the photographs emerging from an invitation to perform the self. The installations address ongoing concerns –the question of transformation, retrieving the marginal and the play between the mythic and social in the context of gender, body, representation, urban ecologies, violence and visual culture. Public art interventions are an important arena for Chhachhi and she has created several onsite works in the city of Delhi over the last few years.

Expressing enthusiasm over this year’s artworks, Volte Art Projects’ founder and director, Tushar Jiwarajka said, “This year’s Volte Art Projects is refreshingly significant and I feel greatly honored for being able to expand our country’s art outlook by joining hands with artists who are not only original but also constantly innovating, breaking the conservative approach towards art with their various forms of subtle and bold expressions.”
