Lose yourself in the world of sculptures and textile art at a joint show in New Delhi

Two artists, two countries, and a great show. Gallery Ske in New Delhi has on display works by an Indian and a Pakistani-based artist, each of whose works are a comment on society and culture.

In Sakshi Gupta’s At the still point of the turning world, she explores ‘the experience of productivity in active stillness’. The display includes a series of sculptures that convey journeys of the mind through their play of form.

Gardening the Archive, a series of prints and ‘textile interventions’ by Lahore-based British artist David Alesworth, brings to life narratives of history and politics through landscape creations on carpets. This interesting show of artworks presents a unique way of documenting histories and cultures.
