Vadehra Art Gallery presents,'At the turn of a Page', a group exhibition with artists Paul Bill Barritt, Treibor Mawlong, Bakula Nayak, Renuka Rajiv and Shrimanti Saha. Curated by Shivangi Singh, the exhibition will be on view from 12th June till 30th June 2016 at Vadehra Art Gallery, D-53 Defence Colony, New Delhi - 110024.
The graphic medium has been intrinsic to the artistic practice and production. Whether it is through illustrations in books or in animations with drawings, the medium allows for an experiment between text and image, between oral and drawn. It engages with the aspect of narratives in a distinct manner and not always as contained within the art historically known traditional paradigms. It carries the potential to create a different kind of language to make certain stories and histories visible, which may not always be possible through other mediums.
The exhibition is an inquiry into the self-sustaining art practices of these artists inter-laid in making comics, prints, zines, animations and illustrations with the frame of ‘the story’. If storytelling occurs as an event, being 'at the turn of a page' signifies a moment when stories wait to be seen, heard, touched and felt.
