Fame of the discarded
Head over for this unique show at Art Alive Gallery that brings the exhibition Devi that displays weaved discarded materials into magnificent sculptures and installations by sculptor Narayan Sinha.
Devi is the female manifestation of the divine or the supreme lord of the Hindus. Sinha, through his sculptures and installations, showcases that every woman is an avatar of the supreme goddess in one sense or the other. Devi is his ode to womanhood, a tribute to her internal and external beauty, her compassion and her strength that has always inspired him.
The show is a spectacle of the artiste’s creativity and simulating imagination. The artiste has depicted the strong bond between craft and fine arts. The sculptures made of automobile parts, utensils, latches, locks, keys, pipes, boxes, wood, nuts and metal scraps tell a story of the life of every woman, which resonates with all cultures.
The story has a universal and modern language that puts a light on the dichotomy between the simplicity and purity of her soul and the complexity and struggle of her life.
