Sculpture And Video Art
Sculpture and Video Art was an Associate Residency where artists were free to explore new directions in the production of their projects. It also facilitated greater flexibility to both the artists in terms of time and to Khoj as it allowed for a rolling application process. The residency featured works by three artists from Berlin, California and New Delhi.
About this programme
Associate Residency at KHOJ Studios featuring 3 artists.
1. Takehito Kogenezawa,Berlin.
Koganezawa’s videos often originate from live performances and include the artist as an actor/participant. His drawings are simple coloured pencil lines on large white paper backgrounds.
Converging recognizable objects with abstract fragments, his drawings invoke a surrealist mood. And though surrealist, the artist maintains a light, humorous edge throughout his oeuvre.
2. Michael Peter Cain, California.
His aims for the duration of the residency at Khoj are listed below:
1) to collaborate with electronic engineers to create viewer interactive light-sound and kinetic features for my [Cain’s] sculptures.
2) to participate in dialogues ongoing at Khoj about my [Cain’s] work and other artists’ work through an exhibition of my work, a lecture about my work, brainstorming sessions with residents and members, etc.
3. Susanta Mandal, New Delhi.
In his words: I [Mandal] had been experimenting with wooden structures and canvas, used together to get a different form, which was suitable to deliver my own language. The forms of these structures have been inspired by the ancient weaving looms. While weaving looms produce clothes with designs–here weaving looms produced clothes decorated with history, politics, and human pain. All of my works demand light in a different way. It was not gallery light that was required, but I wanted light to be an integral part of the work itself.
Associate Residencies are shorter self-directed projects where the artist/artists are free to experiment and explore new directions in the process and production of their project. These allow greater flexibility to both the artists in terms of time and to KHOJ in that proposals may be structured into the program as and when they are submitted through the year.
The program is open to local artists and plays a vital role in keeping the spontaneity of KHOJ alive.

Schizoanalysis, as a concept, found currency with the Postermodernist turn, through the writings of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. Posed as a challenge to the violence of psychoanalysis and the Oedipal understanding of the world, schizoanalysis proposed to move away from the clinical underpinnings of psychoanalysis and psychiatry, breaking out of the hierarchies between the doctor and the patient, to…
The Aerosol Chronicles Capture Omlojan is a six-part sequential exploration with sound, voice, and moving images. Conceptualized in the wake of auto-generated toxicities that swarm in the air, this artwork attempts to spend some time with the question of being in common with ‘our’ atmosphere. It is also an exploration in not forgetting that there exist radically different ways of…
