Description

One of South Asia’s most compelling artists, Jitish Kallat has built an immersive practice, ranging from ideas of time, recursion and historical recall, to deliberations on the cosmopolis and the intertwined spheres of ecology and cosmology. The curator of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale in 2014, his work has been exhibited widely at museums and institutions worldwide. His vast oeuvre—spanning painting, photography, sculpture, and installation—reveals his commitment to unveiling the meditative concerns of the self, often simultaneously situating the metropolis while also relating to the cosmic. 

This specially commissioned monograph commemorates a retro-spective exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, in 2017. A collection of illustrations will map the contours of Kallat’s expansive corpus of artworks, exhibition displays and found imagery, exploring the visual culture from which the artist initiates his wide-ranging processes and activates an accumulating personal archive. 

Edited by Natasha Ginwala and featuring an extensive interview with curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, this volume includes essays and conversations involving curators, art historians as well as scholars in the fields of social theory and science. 

Published in association with Nature Morte, Galerie Templon, Chemould Prescott Road.

With contributions by Natasha Ginwala, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Ranjit Hoskote, Girish Shahane, Suhanya Raffel, Dilip Gaonkar, Jyoti Dhar, Bernardo Kastrup, and Shumon Basar. 

Natasha Ginwala is the curator of Contour Biennale 8 and the curatorial advisor for documenta 14 (2017). She writes on contemporary art and visual culture in various publications.
