CheMoulding Part II - FUTURING
60 years of Chemould Gallery
+ CAMP invites:
Mohit Shelare, Curve in the Desire.
++
himanshu S and aqui T, Parallel Universe.

In this series of two interventions in the gallery, we recall an art without frames: the in-situ wall paintings, mylar cones, geru floor and the artist-at-work in Nalini Malani’s “City of Desire”, staged as a response to the disappearing murals of Nathdwara, in the old Chemould above Jehangir Art Gallery in 1992.

This time we are on the reverse side of the curved wall, in a womb with a new set of starting points, and with a sense of some futures that began in this city some time ago.

Mohit Shelare, himanshu S and aqui T have distinct practices that suggest new epistemic, infrastructural positions to view the space-time of a city and these 60 years. They take challenging paths from art school or no art school, into the present. They trouble settled histories of art, and produce a discontinuous, affective relay between 1992 events in the gallery, CAMP’s interests in city and desire, and their own readings and writings of desire. These projects emerged from a dialogue between artists, have erupted into forms in the space, and hope to provoke a public conversation in turn.

In this pair of large-scale works, CAMP explore two sides of their practice; one that produces experimental film and video, often with unusual equipment and angles of participation, and another that creates and animates archives of moving images, documents and photography.
