Art Alive Gallery will be showcasing a group show – Retrieval Systems – curated by Ranjit Hoskote along with five other contemporary Indian artists. The unique art collections are already on display at Visual Art Gallery from 19th November and will continue till 23rd November. The event will be shifted to Art Alive Galleryon 25th November. ‘Retrieval Systems’ brings together works by five contemporary artists namely, Alex Fernandes B Manjunath Kamath Baiju Parthan G R Iranna and Tina Bopiah whose approach is based on the secreting of clues and patterns that add up to larger bodies of remembrance.
The title of the exhibition borrowed its name from the information technology and indicates the electronic storage and access devices that extend our memory. Hoskote added, I would use the term retrieval systems to refer, metaphorically, to the archives of memory and reference that sustain the contemporary artistic imagination, which includes mainly the data that flows from the Net, mythology from various cultures, or the repertoires of art history. Among the five artists, Alex Fernandes works in the shifting terrain between portraiture and anthropology which presents a fascinating series of meta-portraits of Tiatristes – the performers who have kept alive one of Goa’s best-loved theatre forms. B Manjunath Kamath’s sculpture-installation and digital composites presents archaeology of family and community memory from history but with his touch of humour. A multi-part photographic installation by Baiju Parthan describes the meditation on an Indo-Iberian monument that encrypts autobiographical resonances and explores the interplay of dream and memory.
G R Iranna contributes three sculptural works to Retrieval Systems a maimed bell, a dissected boat, and a disarranged Buddha, re-configuring mythic resources and inherited symbolisms to interpret the present. The broken Buddha – Peace & Pieces – spreads the message of peace I wanted to convey the message of peace and healing which we people have lost in this world shared G R Iranna. Lastly, Tina Bopiah has placed a suite of paintings which meditate on the gaps and bridges between fantasia and collective self-representation.
