A global vision

first_imgThe Apeejay Arts complex opens its doors to yet another dramatic show, Outpost by artiste Samar Singh Jodha. His latest enterprise is a visual disquisition on a global culture where individual aesthetic notions are framed by commercial interests, and homogenised to such a degree by mass media that spontaneous individual expressions often emerge as accidental bi-products of non-aesthetic pursuits.He highlights this unusual state of affairs via a pictorial trope of discarded containers fashioned into habitat by miners in India’s pristine northeast.

The interplay of narratives represented by a broken people and their robust expression unravels the threads of a global technopoly that promises a rosy future to many of us via rapid innovation, while simultaneously condemning many others to centuries-old regression.
