221208: Krinzinger Projekte: Sakshi Gupta, Zakkir Hussain, Srinivasa Prasad, Navin Thomas, Avinash Veeraraghavan

Krinzinger Projekte: Sakshi Gupta, Zakkir Hussain, Srinivasa Prasad, Navin Thomas, Avinash Veeraraghavan On the poetry of a cloth bicycle One must applaud the fact that this exhibition does not claim to show an overview over the art scene of the six million-city Bangalore. In the past years, many galleries ran into trouble because they promised to present a general overview – a promise they were of course unable to keep. Not so at Krinzinger Projekte. The show is a cooperation between the SKE Gallery in Bangalore and presents five current positions, clearly separated and without any reference whatsoever regarding the „Indian“ aspect of this art. The highlight of the exhibition evolves around Srinivasa Prasad’s objects, which are completely covered by brown jute sacks and arranged in ensembles and sculptures. The well-known image in Indian streets of a fully laden bicycle, artistically covered with jute enfolds a wonderful kind of poetry. These familiar objects develop an aura of saintliness, invoke associations of wanderings and an impoverished life, and tell more about life than many other legends. Avinash Veeraraghavan creates an eerie and nightmarish atmosphere in the gallery’s cellar. The completely abstract film – solely showing shadows and silhouettes accompanied by the sounds of laughing, crying or moaning as well as a few piano tones by Bach - is mesmerising. The works by Zakkir Hussain, Navin Thomas and Sakshi Gupta are, in comparison, much less convincing. They lack what Prasad and Veeraraghavan are so impressively capable of: creating a very special atmosphere.
