Being Singular Plural offers visitors the unique opportunity to encounter recent and new film, video, and sound-based works by seven of the most innovative and visionary contemporary artists, filmmakers, and media practitioners living and working in India today: Shumona Goel, Shai Heredia, Sonal Jain, Vikram Joglekar, Amar Kanwar, Mriganka Madhukaillya, and Kabir Mohanty. The works included in this presentation reveal the quiet principles of practice, process, and perception, while being grounded in a vital social consciousness. This timely and discourse-defining exhibition is oriented toward coproducing new work, facilitating research, and assembling a community of practitioners.
My favorite was the room with an adult sandbox in the middle. It had different sized rocks, leaves and dirt. You take off your shoes and walk through while listening to your feet touch them via speakers above your head and microphones on the border of the box. It’s like walking along a rocky beach without having to travel. Loved it!
