Stone Paper Pillar | 2016

By | G-Spot, Projects
Artist:

Ayesha Singh

Location:

New Delhi

An exhibition by artist Ayesha Singh, whose works at “Stone, Paper, Pillar” drew attention to the evolution of the
column from a structural need to a decorative want. With an interest in creating new spaces in pre-existing
architecture, Singh uses scale to investigate the malleability of space in both its physical and illusionary
manifestations.

Columns, New Delhi (2016) is an installation of large-format photographs that can be walked around and
experienced. The works simultaneously create and fragment the viewers visual and physical experience of the
interior. Referencing facade-like architectural creations, the images can only be viewed from on one side. Singh’s
work is informed by hybrid constructions that emulate architectural tropes from various countries and cultures,
often making themselves incongruous to their physical location. The content of the work draws attention to purely
aesthetic, non-functional and non-structural elements in Delhi’s architecture. Evolution (2017) is a wall piece that
outlines the progression of the capitals of columns, from Egyptian, Greek, Roman to its appropriation.

Queen-size | 2016

By | Projects
Supported By:

Pro Helvetia- Swiss Arts Council, Japan Foundation, Nishit Saran Foundation & Gujral Foundation

Location:

New Delhi

Queen-size is a choreographic exploration that takes the form of a detailed study of the intimacy between two men. Played out on a charpoy, the duet examines the nuts and bolts – carnal, mechanical and emotional – of a close encounter between two male bodies. In deliberately making this encounter visible, Queen-size poses questions around spectatorship, privacy and dissent.
The work has been triggered by and is an artistic response to Nishit Saran’s article titled ‘Why My Bedroom Habits Are Your Business’, first published in the Indian Express in January 2000.
Choreographer: Mandeep Raikhy
Performers and Collaborators: Lalit Khatana & Parinay Mehra
Sound Designer: Yasuhiro Morinaga
Light Designer: Jonathan O’Hear
Photographer: Desmond Roberts
The production of the work has been supported by Pro Helvetia- Swiss Arts Council, Japan Foundation, Nishit Saran Foundation & Gujral Foundation.
