Open Studio Day: The Undivided Mind | Part I | Art & Science Residency

Khoj invites you to the Open Day of The Undivided Mind : Art and Science Residency, Part I.

27th February, 5:30 PM onwards at Khoj Studios

5:30 PM: Panel Discussion with Artists-in-Residence

The CAAS crew re-imagined KHOJ, Khirkee and the surrounding areas of Delhi as a spaceship. After visitors entered the airlock, they entered a visual metaphor of a spaceship. They were invited to shift their perspectives, through collages that collide the realities of living in the extremes of space, with the realities of living in the extremes of dense urban cities.

Expert interviewed footage fed into these juxtaposed living scenarios, further demonstrating how these different environments can learn and inform each other. CAAS was delighted to be joined by Delhi based artist Rohini Devasher, whose video works emphasized the changing shades of blue in the sky and the fragility of greens, these works were positioned alongside CAAS’s scientific prose to deliver a well rounded visual illustration.

The Open Day featured works-in-progress and talks by the resident artists:

City as a Spaceship (Sue Fairburn, Barbara Imhof and Susmita Mohanty)
Rohini Devasher

The work will remain on view till March 3rd, 2015.

Khoj receives support from the Norwegian Embassy.
Barbara Imhof was supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum, New Delhi.
