Territory, An Art Event – 1998

An exhibition of outdoor and indoor installations on the outskirts of Bangalore.
Participating Artists : Raghavendra Rao, Ramesh Kalkur, Azis T.M., Surekha, M.C. Ramesh, Tripura Kashyap, and C.F. John

The works were executed in an open land of around two acres and in an old industrial building, 40 ft. (w) x 100 ft. (l) x 25 ft. (h). Twenty-four hours prior to the opening of the show there was a heavy storm and rain, which partially damaged the details and structures of the outdoor installations. Keeping the theme in mind, we made an attempt to do away with defining lines and ambience. The materials chosen were the day-to-day materials conventionally used for defining boundaries, For example, corrugated metal sheets, gunny cloths, bamboo, chicken wire mesh, and bricks. The rawness of the materials was retained in the works.
