Verve Weekend Guide
Granite Lamp & Mirror, New Delhi
Kerala-born artist Madhusudanan’s latest body of work, that focuses on questions of image and identity through the lens of politics, includes artworks in diverse media including oil paintings, sculptures, and ink and charcoal drawings. Continuing his engagement with themes including global wars, and cinema as a historical medium, the artist’s new body of work is an evocative series of creations.
Granite Lamp & Mirror is on display at Vadehra Art Gallery (D-53 Defence Colony), New Delhi until October 25.
Highlighting the photographer’s preoccupation with light, nature and the quotidian world, Datura by Shahid Datawala focuses on plants and flowers, not just as nature’s delights but as characters in a story. Clicked over several months in Mumbai and Paris, Datawala’s photos are reminiscent of the magical natural photos by masters like Karl Blossfeldt. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue essay penned by Matthieu Foss.
Datura is on display at TARQ (F35/36, Dhanraj Mahal, C.S.M. Marg, Apollo Bunder, Colaba), Mumbai from October 12 to November 24.
