Shrine Empire Gallery presents 'Shut Up, Internet!' a solo exhibition by Suchitra Gahlot (Born 1977, Hisar)
Suchitra Gahlot’s work reflects her interest in human behaviour and relationships. As an artist, she is interested in exploring all that binds us and yet makes us different people. Her installations often ask the viewer to walk the line between voyeur and participant.
Her current work, ‘Shut Up, Internet!’ is an installation of suspended jars that contain forty thousand emails dating from 1995 that have been torn to pieces. Bits of paper fly to a controlled turbulence within each jar. These seemingly self-contained cells of chaos are reflective of artist's own struggles with digital living.
The installation examines the cacophony of digital living and how we live in a permanent state of responsiveness to every beep or buzz. As we are alerted into submission, we are no different from the devices we own. They own us as much as we own them.
