As If - II : A Closing Opening

Closing event 
As If - II Flight of the Black Boxes

Talk will be from 6:00 pm to 7:30pm
On Tuesday 24th February 
at 24, Jorbagh
The exhibition will remain open till 8:30 pm

Do join us for a closing day talk with Ashok Sukumaran of CAMP, and Aastha Chauhan, Shaunak Sen and Srinivas Aditya Mopidevi who will offer responses and questions to parts of the exhibition. 

Ashok will also describe and show images from CAMP's ongoing As If exhibition series, a diverse landscape and topography of artistic moves. The third part of As If, titled "Country of the Sea" opened at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum in Mumbai two days ago. This talk gives a moment to reflect upon, recognise, squeeze or test some of the things that are at stake in these exhibitions. 

About Flight of the Black Boxes:
Born in experimentation and uncertainty, black boxes of machines and institutions surround us with seemingly smooth and impenetrable functions. But reintroduce the uncertainty, reopen the conflicts, and the box appears stable in neither form nor function. Twelve works by CAMP look out through the unstable interior worlds of cameras, memory devices, surveillance systems, electricity and more, developing feelings and strategies alongside them.

Al jaar qabla al daar (The neighbour before the house)

الجار قبل الدار

“The Neighbour before the House” is a series of video probes into the landscape of East Jerusalem. Shot with a security camera, these images show that before and after instrumental "surveillance", there is inquisitiveness, jest, memory, desire and doubt that pervades the project of watching. In these specific times and places, camera movements and live commentary become ways in which Palestinian residents evaluate what can be seen, and speak about the nature of their distance from others.



CAMP: Beginnings

Beginnings is an exhibition tracing some of the conceptual and artistic origins of CAMP. At ARGOS, Brussels as part of new beginnings at ARGOS itself.

A Photogenetic Line: Experimenter 2019

A 100-foot long branching sequence of cutouts drawing from the photo archives of The Hindu, a 140-year old newspaper. Cutouts here are a way of reframing existing photographs as new organisms and to create a new boundary or border for the image.
