The show titled Tactile and Intangible Melodies by Robin Passi that started off on 21 August at Alliance Francaise De in the Capital displays works made up of mirrors and wire mesh. The pieces displayed were along the path between sculpture and relief, art and design and the art object and art installation.

Passi used mirrors of different sizes to catch reflections of different parts of the environment which creates new relations between space and form. Using mirrors and wire-mesh, he used its flow which pulls together the myriad of reflecting mirrors into a mythical stream of light. So in a sense elements of the tactile and tangible world and evokes intangible myths were been used. But like all myths there has to the some reality for their intangible messages to latch onto, to be believable. His metal orbs with mirrors in them, which, when hung from trees remind one of how bird-lovers carry their caged song-birds to hang from their branches to hear their melodies. These mirror-encrusted globes evoke birdsong in the visual form of reflections.

The works reflected the artiste’s search for meaning from the raw material of day-to-day life, and in doing so he gave us hope for a future filled with creativity, variety and sensitivity.
