About The Event

New Delhi: Khoj International Artists Association presents a group exhibition titled Coriolis Effect: Migration and Memory that will be held at Khoj Studios, S-17, Khirkee Extension, New Delhi from September 29 to October 4, 2016, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. The exhibition is the culmination of a month-long residency at Khoj Studios that includes Indian and African artists and one which seeks to activate the social, economic and cultural relationship which exists between India and Africa. Participating artists are Mahesh Shantaram, Andrew Ananda Voogel, Chibuike Uzoma, João Orecchia, Liza Grobler, Malini Kochupillai and Swati Janu. The critic-in-residence is Persis Taraporevala. Says Sitara Chowfla, curator, Khoj Studios: “Khoj’s neighborhood of Khirkee Village is a dense urban-village environment that is home to a stream of immigrants from within India and across the global South. Arrival is often accompanied by tension and experiences of discrimination based on race and social difference. In this past year at Khoj, we have been deeply contemplating Migration – the voluntary or involuntarily movement of peoples from one place to another. Globally, we have borne witness to the forced displacement of thousands of people from their homelands, and locally we have first hand experienced the trauma of re-location. We are also extremely interested in the formation of memory due to this migration – both individual and collective. We have invited artists to look back at the past and comprehend the present. What happens to your identity when you lose your place of belonging? What are memories of home and place that you carry with you?”
