Kingdom of Cards by Piyali Sadhukhan

Now on view-January 14, 2022

Drawing inspiration from literature, history and media, this latest solo exhibition of work by the mixed-media artist Piyali Sadhukhan, who was born in Kolkata in 1979, is a visceral portrayal of historical events and our shared lived experiences. The works in Sadhukhan’s latest series provides the space for the viewers to get intimate with the works on display and offers them the opportunity to question the fantastical realities of our times.

Sadhukhan’s works in this series, unfold into elaborate mythical narratives. She layers popular literature and fiction, with cut bangles and torched canvases, her medium of choice, fully cognizant of using her artistic tools to even the planes of fantasy and reality. Here, the artist embodies the spirit of a storyteller and uses the devices of narrative storytelling, one of the oldest forms of mass media to discuss such taboo subjects.
