Inside the artiste

Inside the artiste
It all started with a thought – How would one know about those missing links of artist’s personal views and ideas, thoughts that have never sprung-up on the surface, at a social gathering or a public viewing.  In December 2013, Exhibit 320 had a critically effective launch of this project and now they leap onto the second chapter of Artchiving; an artists’ perspective. A project cum exhibit theorized by Ranjita Chaney. Participating Artists will be MuktinathMondal, Pooja Iranna, Probir Gupta, Remen Chopra, VibhaGalhotra.

Artchiving; an artist’s perspective focuses on thoughts and opinions about an artist's current state of mind, documented  over a period of time, seeing them evolve addressing to same issues and ideas.

To express largely, this is an effort of presenting art and practice to a broader audience through personal interaction. By documenting, not artists’ works and beliefs alone but their personal and private thoughts in their naked studios and individual places.

The main aim is to create an archive of artist’s practice and their beliefs, attempting at a resourceful exchange of dialogues between artists’ practices and influences in their ongoing journey. Seeing finished works on display from every artist, interviews about their practice and thesis on their work style, is not sufficient.

The basic question is  ‘How is it done’, ‘what is the artist thinking when making or working on a piece and many more?’ Hence, an attempt to collect imagery along with words and information for our archives from this artistic journal.

Where : Exhibit320, When: 22 November to 15 January
