The exhibition highlighted the interwoven narratives of generations, cultures, and identities. The works by the three artists explored the themes of memory, nostalgia and identity. They showcase the convergence of dream-like states and the unconscious, presenting pieces that blur the boundaries between personal experiences, storytelling, and fiction.
As visitors walked through the two apartments within the exhibition space, they were greeted by the warm and bright ambiance of our apartment complemented by the display of works.
They actively engaged with the work, engrossed in the experience as if watching a film or immersing themselves in a scene.
Anousha Payne’s work is primarily drawn to her interests in spirituality and animism, alongside characters with transformative qualities. Payne’s work is engaged with her Indian heritage in the form of tales of Indian folklore.
The exhibition in our apartment showcased all the artworks together in an inviting and intimate setting. The natural light highlighted each of the details of the curated selection. The ambiance brought the works to life The pieces were also supplemented by a series of events that took place at the venue.
The space fostered an environment conducive to interaction, communication, and exchange among the visitors to the exhibition. Guests even had a chance to meet with the artists creating an evening of dialog along with a tight knit art experience.
Laila Tara H, ‘Lice’, 2023: Laila Tara H’s small-scale paintings on paper draw on the tradition of Indo-Persian miniature painting. Her Iranian heritage, and years spent moving through continents, has informed the language through which she articulates her own history of living in different cultural settings.
The exhibition showcased a curated collection of paintings, wall sculptures, and works on paper.
Isabella Ducrot, ‘Eros V’, 2022 Isabella Ducrot showcases woven cloth as the founding material of her artistic practice. She has assembled a collection of antique textiles through her extensive travels through Asia, originating primarily from Turkey, India, China, Tibet and Afghanistan.
