The March shows of Kolkata Centre for Creativity has been delightful. The exhibition, The Politics of Paper which shows the dynamics of paper as a medium of expression deserves special mention. What caught my eye and stayed with me long after was the full wall installation by N S Harsha. From far it looks like a huge abstract field with black molds of destruction seeping out. As one moves closer, they take on a form and we see an exodus of gentle elephants.
This will be available for viewing from 12th February – 29th March, 2022 at KCC, Kolkata
Among the other shows the centenary retrospective on Satyajit Ray in association with Gallery Rasa was informative. The timeline of his movies and life was neatly drafted. It was on from 13th February to 14th March.
