Presented by Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre, the exhibition is the largest and first-ever show by TOILETPAPER in India. Curated by Mafalda Millies and Roya Sachs (TRIADIC) with Elizabeth Edelman (TRIADIC) as the executive producer, the artworks are pop-culture-inspired parallel universes of edgy and provocative visuals that investigate our current reality of hyperconsumption, making us question the way in which we engage with an increasingly virtual world, incessantly drowned in visual stimulation.
Spread out across the four floors of Art House, the first chapter of the exhibit, ‘Take a Left, Right?’, invites you into a photomontage maze. The second chapter ‘Is There Room in the Sky?’ is filled with optical illusions that warp your perception of space and time. The third chapter, ‘A House Is a Building That People Live In’ interrupts the concept of the ‘perfect home’ with deliberate misalignments like a home without a roof, a swimming pool filled with bananas and other topsy-turvy household utilities with no apparent function. The last chapter, ‘The Control Room’, is a Lynchian monochromatic space sprinkled with archival objects, images and works from the studio’s HQ in Milan.
It is up to you to decide – in an overdosed contemporary society, how slowly can you run?
Kindly note that this is a paid event.
