Panaji : Sunaparanta Goa Centre for the Arts is all set to organise ‘Box Politics & its Poetry’ tomorrow on 7th April. This is basically a group show of new works by contemporary artists as well as works from a private collection, which will be on display from 7th April till 5th June. The show will be open to the public from 10.30 am to 6.30 pm on all week days, except Sundays. Artists Prabhakar Barwe, George Byrne, Kedar Dhondu, Yamini Nayar, Jagannath Panda, Earl Park, Sudhir Patwardhan, Shrimanti Saha, Vasantha Yogananthan and Jiyoung Yoon have displayed their work in ‘Box Politics & its Poetry’.
In the said exhibition, the box turns into the main site of inquiry.The concept of the show goes like this : Over the past year, this architectural unit became central to people’s lives. It was a source of protection and solitude but also of fear and loneliness. The artists in this show position themselves at this threshold and invite a reconsideration of how we perceive and think in a given space.
The works in this exhibition function as a blueprint, a sort of imagined geography. Space is repurposed and we daydream about new forms of human and non-human coexistence. Keeping this perspective in mind, the box was always a circle. As the interior and exterior landscapes are negotiated, the box is experienced both as a geometric object and a vault of memory.
