A compelling showcase of photography, artist-books, texts, films, video and sound installations, an upcoming photo exhibition in Goa reflects the complex and imbricated histories of South Asia and the world. 'Growing Like A Tree: Sent A Letter' opens on December 14th at Sunaparanta Goa Centre.
The title draws from Dayanita Singh’s work, 'Sent A Letter' (2007) that was exhibited as a citation in the first iteration of the show. Expanding on the idea that an unopened photo-book can enfold diaries, exhibitions and correspondences, the show returns to this source to evoke the tactile act of composing letters.
Bringing together new and previously presented works, the curation pushes the boundaries of contemporary image-making as modes of address that offer a changing map of interconnected practices. Marking the third iteration of the exhibition initially curated by artist Sohrab Hura, the show expands on Hura’s collective journeys with practitioners across geographic borders.
The exhibition provides a unique opportunity to witness path-breaking curatorial directions in the field of contemporary art within the subcontinent.
