Khoj 1998 (Modinagar)
The second Khoj workshop in 1998 was, as the one before, dynamic, liberating and new. In an attempt to widen the artists’ network that had been established we looked further afield and invited artists from Japan, Singapore and Israel and continued our alliance with artists from Africa and the West Indies. Sparked by an intention to continue a firm conversation with our neighbours, we also had artists from Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Twenty two artists from different locations set out to reinvent definite art systems and processes, providing a structure in which the artist is free to orient, probe and act. The workshop was conducted in Sikribagh, Modinagar- venue of Khoj 1997 workshop. In the vast premises of the location, the artists shared their experiences, culture and values; learning and influencing each other to create a vibrant energy. The regeneration of materials both in the making and dismantling gave a fleeting permanence to the works, with a few exceptions, most artworks left tangible traces of their presence.
