What: An assemblage of narratives from old to the new, ‘Fragments of Imagination’ engages the viewer’s perception that are extended beyond the image. It is a reflection on the transience of human and material existence and absence both. Even as an aggregation of fragments, what makes this experience a distinct aesthetic procedure is the unity of meaning or the lack of it. The creators will transport the viewers to a journey of voyages, transmitting landscapes, non-cerebral seeing/sensing, human body intricacies, preserving memories, Gods and Goddesses. This exhibition is a transcendental space capture which could provide a place for the viewer where differently experienced and imagined worlds come together.
When: November 1- 25

What: Artist Lena Acharya started to paint with watercolour at the young age of 75. Triveni Kala Sangam presents her third solo show – ‘Perspectives Reset’. Her generation was one caught between two worlds, the British Raj about to leave India, and the Indian nation waiting to be born. The freedom movement was a deeply emotional experience which unfolded during her formative years. Travel was a major part of her emotional foundation, whether it was travelling the length and breadth of India or around the world.
