Ramesh Kalkur’s project
Ramesh Kalkur engaged with the inside/outside contradiction, quoting and commenting on the Post-impressionism within the post-modern, with wit, reversals and a wry irony. A clear knowledge of the out of sync illusions of underdeveloped economies underscored his work. Working with the aviary he wove an image of the cage as seen from the outside (quoting the 50 mm lens), onto the rectangular frame of the pipe-iron cot. Perceptional knowledge, fauvism, pointillism and weaving skills helped him realize an image surface to contemplate or to sleep on. The modernist object image was thus encaged within the real cage.
