CURATOR’S NOTE

Pushpamala N

“As artist curator, I have decided not to have a single overarching theme but to have a loose theme for each venue, sometimes site-specific, around which there are group works that resonate with each other. My larger curatorial concept is to ruminate on the nature of photography in a poetic and philosophical way. The provisional title of the Biennale – Fauna of Mirrors – is an old Chinese myth that talks about an alternate universe that exists behind the mirror; another dimension which is home to unknown creatures. I will argue around the myth to see the practice of photography as a mirror reflection of modern life, creating a parallel world of images- familiar yet strange, perhaps friendly and intimate, sometimes mysterious and hostile – but always magical.”
