Off Margins | Miniatures in the postmodern

The exhibit, "OFF MARGINS: Miniatures in Postmodern," celebrates a 21st-century resurgence in miniature art where artists redefine boundaries and challenge traditional legacies. The showcase further prompts contemplation on whether the emerging art form requires a new name.

The exhibit features eight South Asian artists who blend miniature techniques and visual language with a contemporary essence. Each artist's works revolve around various themes, both tangible and intangible. Some artworks explore psycho-physical shifts in urban spaces, while others depict humor and feminism, the impact of social differences, along with lyrical landscapes.

Arslan Farooqi delves into questions about existence directed towards a collective, cosmic consciousness. Divya Pamnani blends medieval visual language with contemporary essence in exploring ancient Indian games. Gargi Chandola intertwines themes of feminism and human notions of territory and power with a touch of humour. Laxmipriya Panigrahi captures both tangible and imagined details through surreal landscapes. Lekha Shastry’s compositions transverse the boundaries between reality and surrealism, creating lyrical landscapes. Pavan Kavitkar captures shifts in natural and urban spaces, transforming psycho-physical space in social and political contexts. Ravi Kumar Chaurasia examines the hidden implications of development and class differences. Sukanya Ayde envisions an enchanted space- a secret garden- celebrating nature’s carefree aspects and endless possibilities.
