Exploring Home With Four Artists
A lot of us played “House House” as children. But as we entered the real world, reality took the place of fantasy. At a new show in Mumbai, four artists working in various media attempt to explore various ideas and facets of ‘home’, in an exhibition of the same name. As Kamayani Sharma explains about the show, “The works on view repurpose the most dominant idioms of bourgeois aspiration in the rapidly developing subcontinent”.
