About the Projects
Still Life with a Curtain – Tara Kelton

still-life-with-a-curtain-by-tara-kelton-at-galleryske-bangaloreStill Life with a Curtain explores how private environments of the everyday, and the objects inhabiting them are shaped by modes of creation and circulation, as well as types of commodification, that have risen with the movement of design practices online and on web-based platforms.

Kelton’s work investigates moments in which technology influences perception, labour and the artist’s gesture. A journey through post-internet art focusing on the intersection of the real and virtual world, it is an outcome of applied and creative exercises with 3D visualizers and desktop publishing (DTP) workers that Kelton worked with. The collaborators were asked to materialize information given by the artist according to their own interpretations, resulting in a series of images.

Kelton has had solo exhibitions at GALLERYSKE, Bangalore (2015, 2014), and / Banner Repeater, London (2013). Her work has featured in group exhibitions at ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany, (2016), at the Sandra and David Bakalar Gallery, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Boston (2015), the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, Kochi (2014), Museum of Conflict, Ahmedabad (2014), Franklin Street Works, Stamford (2013 & 2011), Centre for Internet and Society, Bangalore (2013), the Queens Museum of Art, New York (2012), and at Vox Populi, Philadelphia (2011) amongst others. Kelton lives and works in Bangalore.

Signal – Suchender P
signal-by-suchender-p-at-galleryske-bangaloreSuchender P’s practice primarily involves painting, perceptive of the skewed power relationship between the human species and the environment. Drawing on the principal system of flags and associated codes used by international maritime, the current body of work, Signal, proffers narratives of larger global concerns: of migration, climate change, deforestation and urban development.

Layered with oblique references; alphabets and marine codes extend as titles to the drawings and watercolours on paper.

Suchender P’s solo exhibitions include Satyameva Jayate, Anant Art Gallery, Kolkata (2008) and Preaching Museum, GALLERYSKE, Bangalore (2005). His group exhibitions include H. K Kejriwal Young Artist Award show, Mahua Art Gallery, Bangalore (2016), In Other Rooms, GALLERYSKE, Bangalore (2015), The Sakshi Show, Sakshi Gallery at The Park, Chennai (2013), Is urbanization getting crazy? HCG Foundation Art Show, Mysore (2011); the Harmony Art Foundation Show, Mumbai (2008) among others. Suchender lives and works in Mysore.
