Ortega y Gasset Projects is pleased to announce ARCHITECTONICS OF DISPERSION immersive acts and objects, the NYC debut solo show of Kuldeep Singh.

About

In ARCHITECTONICS OF DISPERSION immersive acts and objects, Singh creates a diorama-like installation housing objects in textiles, fragile drawings in assorted proportions, shelves of glazed vegetables against mud washed walls - all as an invented mythic realm in which his carefully directed team of collaborating artists set sensuous acts in instrumental music of sitar, violin, and movement.

Poised and immersed, the acts extract eclectic components in transliteration from Nātyashāstra (2nd century AD dramaturgical Sanskrit treatise) and Manasollāsa (11th century AD socio-cultural tome) undulating masculine and feminine in a body through inventive situations - with hypnosis of primitivism, decor and a sense of languor. Large hay-filled pillows and a delicate muslin carpet of lotus medallion drawings, in hues of pale pinks and tinted blues, becomes the recurring site for the attired performers to incarnate. The acts come together to constitute a system that questions human nature's genesis and defects as well as the multiplicity of its facets.

Artists in collaboration:

Harsh Shah on sitar
Kannan Mahadevan on violin
Sophia Salingaros in movement
Daniel Llaría in movement
Mollie Goldstrom in movement
