In her solo show "Garb-Age", Indian artist Shraddha Borawake (Pune, India) ignites a conversation between science and spirituality.


In the solo show "Garb-Age", Indian artist Shraddha Borawake (Pune, India) ignites a conversation between science and spirituality and presents the outcome of her three-month artist residency at SomoS Berlin.
Through a combination of photography, video, performance, sculpture, food and playful dialog, Borawake directs our gaze towards what she describes as “(OUR) global mess,” by focusing on the relations between various forms of knowledge and belief.
Garb-Age consists of installations made from the artist"s collection of curated garbage. Ritualistically arranged, each assemblage recounts how humans have developed interrelated systems to understand the world around them. Starting from simple objects, Borawake invites us to contemplate vast themes concerning knowledge, belief, awareness and the planetary condition.
One impulse for Borawake’s Garb-Age stems from her collaboration with Dutch artist and writer Louwrien Wijers, and in particularly her 1990 panel discussion and book Art Meets Science & Spirituality in a Changing Economy. Like Wijers, the film, sculpture and dialog-spaces of Borawake’s solo exhibition Garb-Age ignite discussion on the interconnections between knowledge and belief systems, rather than their differences.
By looking at the theoretical implications of things, Borawake shows how the garbage of our world is not only material, but also mental. Through transdisciplinary methods, Borawake ritualizes the often chaotic assortment of society’s debris, transforming them into sources of reflection on the precarity of today’s world.
