"2018 Triennial: Songs for Sabotage": Anupam...


The space, I strive in is an irreal entity of contrast and diversity; a world within, paralyzed and blurred by the very notion of it. A space where the idea of diversity incorporates a multilayered foliage. While the idea of 'unity' has bee molded to become a canon that ricochet.

I am Anupam and 'irreal surfaces' is the steadfast account of the inequitable space around me. Ironically, the idea of unity itself vanquishes the spatial limits and resonates 'the excess of resistances on the face of 'excess of oppression'.

Excess is something that comes from the understanding of the representational impossibility of the subject, a subject which is a synthesis of form and flux.

This work consists of identifying different works from the politically turbulent period of last 10 years placed alongside with a set of recent works, thereby an attempt to locate the contemporary presence of those same historical discourses.

With the contradiction and consequences of such relevant developments, I have attempted to create an irreal landscape. Whereas, there is yet another landscape, as I mentioned earlier, that defy spatial limits which is a landscape of resistance, one of collective consciousness, a consistent element that breathes life both in tribal land grab movements in Bastar and Odisha in one hand and native American land movement on the other. 

Such is the narrative of my ideas which isn't an in end in itself but only a morbid beginning for a new and at the same time an ever present outlook.
