‘Dark Side of the Moon’ exhibits madness, intolerance and violence of the times
Gallery 1000A, Lado Sarai, New Delhi in collaboration with Art Multi disciplines (AM)is holding a group exhibition, Dark Side of the Moon. The show is conceived and curated by Ayan Mukherjee. The participating artists include Arindam Chatterjee, Atin Basak, Chandra Bhattacharjee, Chhatrapati Dutta, Srikanta Paul and Saumik Chakraborty.
“Dark Side of the Moon features a collection of images and artistic voices of six different contemporary artists from Bengal which comprehensively discusses the philosophical, physical, and socio-political ideas from our existence that can lead to insanity and ultimately unfulfilled life and times,” says Mukherjee, adding that these art works try to interconnect and coherently exist to showcase the shades of today’s detrimental and hollow times leading towards madness and formulated intolerance and violence.
“Dark side of the Moon is a metaphor for absolute darkness. The darkness can prevail thoroughly and destroy all of the positive emotions of human beings and humanity as a whole. Just like in reality, the light portrayed by the moon is an illusion as we know the moon doesn’t have any light of its own but it reflects the light of the Sun,” adds Mukherjee.
On view till May 15, 11am – 7pm (except sundays and public holidays)
