Curated a& introduced by Shanay Jhaveri


Film screening curated and introduced by Shanay Jhaveri, art historian, in response to Sheela Gowda: Therein & Besides exhibition. Beyond the use of locally specific materials in her works, that suggest a real perceptual awareness of the numerous disappearances and evanescence's of manual labor, resulting from the transmogrifications taking place in India, Sheela Gowda's practice also consciously tends to the abstract. She organizes these materials in vivid abstractions, through various physical processes. It is around this notion of a commitment to process, however visible or invisible, its duration and the skill attached to it, that these film screenings have been programmed. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ilisa Barbash and Lucien Castaing-Taylor, Sweetgrass, 2009, 101' Elegiac and staggeringly beautiful, Sweetgrass follows the last modern day cowboys leading their flocks of sheep up into Monatana's breathtaking and often dangerous Absaroka- Beartooth mountains for summer pasture. A presentation of process almost purely through sound and image, with very little supporting text, the film is overwhelming in its expression of an irrevocable finality. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bangalore based artist Sheela Gowda presents her first solo exhibition in the UK at Rivington Place, including a new commission. Gowda is known for creating large-scale sculptural installations which take everyday materials as the starting point and for works that combine abstract forms with references to society.
