Exhibition Photo Description:
'CONSTRUCTED REALITIES' The title suggests that reality itself is a construct, a structural necessity, one that is read and engaged with through a shared coda of signs. The city space that we inhabit as structure, as discipline displaces earlier cities and cycles of narration, often to be 're-constructed' in romantic or critical terms. Through cinema, media writings and popular music, the evocation of city as construct becomes layered. Meshed into this continually shifting arrangement are other structures -- those of memory and loss -- sites that are dispossessed or repossessed, in pursuit of the city as re-newable structure. As onlooker and archaeologist, the artist seeks to establish an objective practice with “the whole group of functions of observation, interrogation, decipherment, recording…” (Foucault). In this engagement then, sites are 'more' or 'less' real, pasts are evoked or abandoned, and private fantasy is merged with public panoramas. The gaze as it continually moves from physical to virtual reality is extended or withheld, even as it selects or abandons material as the crux of creative expression. Every 'reality' then, has a potentially different 'construction'. Gayatri Sinha
