Stone and wood sculptures are passé; the next big thing in sculpture is fibre glass, aluminum, leather and bronze. Ten artists from different parts of India will enthrall the Capital with their experimental art pieces. Titled Expressions in Space, the exhibition is held at Art Pilgrim Gallery and will open on May 6.
“Contemporary Indian sculptures are among the best in the world; yet it is not given its due recognition. This exhibition would be an attempt to awaken art lovers to this reality,” says Geeta Singh, the curator of the exhibition. “This exhibit would showcase a collection of established artists, such as Laxma Goud and Shivaramachari.”
We talked to two artists, who are showcasing their artpieces here and asked them about their work. Artist Srinivas Reddy, who has come from Hyderabad, said, “Abroad, people are in love with art. But in India, we still have to awaken people about art, which is why I prefer covering all parts of India.” He added, “Though this would be my first visit to Gurgaon, I am sure that people from this corporate city have taste for art.” Gagan Vij, a Delhi-based artist, who has come to show his bronze sculptures, said, “Sculptures are being used as space-fillers in most of the exhibitions. But here, every artist would be given a space and he would express his emotions in the form of sculpture.”
