Installations produced during different residencies and for group and solo shows – 1995 onwards.
Installation as a form was explored fairly recently in India – since early 1990’s. Vivan Sundaram began working on Installations around 1992-93 but Art students in some leading Indian institutions began exploring many dimensions of it. One such experiment was done in Bangalore in 1995 where a group of young artists (John C.F, Ravishankar Rao, Shantamani, Amaresh Bijjal, Rameshchandra and myself) came together to put together a show called ‘Silence of Furies and Sorrows – pages of a Burning City’.
Since then, I have involved in many experiments like ‘Material Immaterial’ in 1995, ‘Territory’ in 1998, ‘I (as in india)’ in 1999, and others.
