BOUNDARIES is an exhibition that explores edges, margins and outlines. Whether an impenetrable fortification or a fragmented demarcation, a boundary line is that which separates us from them, private from public, self from other.
Six projects presented in this exhibition are the outcome of the artist’s experiments, ruminations and work over a six month period of the Catalyst grant. While diverse in media and presentation, the works on display find common ground in their explorations of the idea of ‘boundaries’. Together, the exhibition journeys through different forms of containment - from the human body, to the family home, and the idea of ‘community’. Ideas of identity, belonging and othernessare considered through multiple levels of enquiry.
Goa is no stranger to a prolonged and heated debate on the subject of ‘belonging’. For years the insider-outsider debate has waged on, bringing with questions of authenticity - as expressed through tropes of historicty, legacy and the means through which one validates their right to belong.
The exhibition will be on at:
