Vadehra Art Gallery in collaboration with KHOJ International Artists’ Association organised Mapping the Show: Chronicles of Silence (Khamoshi Ki Daastan).
The talk by artists BV Suresh presented the developments in his practice: across painting, video & installation. He discussed the varying dimensions that emerged in his work through the multi-media approach: technical explorations, critical negotiations and interventions between the materials & concepts.
Presented in conjunction with the artist’s solo show, ‘Chronicles of Silence (Khamoshi Ki Daastan)’ at Vadehra Art Gallery, the talk mapped his recent work in the show.
‘Chronicles of Silence (Khamoshi ki Daastan)‘ was an intermedia installation by BV Suresh curated by Pushpamala N, a well-known artist herself. This was Suresh’s second solo at the Vadehra Art Gallery, where he presented an array of multimedia sculptures that have come to define his practice.
BV Suresh studied Painting at Ken School of Art in Bangalore (1978) and completed his diploma and post-diploma at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Maharaja Sayaji Rao University, Baroda, in 1985. He went on to do an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art, London, on an Inlaks Scholarship where he studied under Peter De Francia and Ken Kiff (1987). BV Suresh is Assistant Professor of Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Maharaja Sayaji Rao University, Baroda and lives and works in Baroda. He is continuously negotiating the visual fields of the contemporary – that includes everything, from art practice to our immediate surroundings. His work is a take on the issues of realism where he employs multiple realisms, questions of history and narration, and engagement with the circulation of mass media images.
