PURSUIT OF THE RIDICULOUS

August 12, 2012

 

Baroda-based artist Bhuvanesh Gowda recently concluded his show in Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai (July 7-August 3, 2012). The show which showcased sculptural works by the Gowda was titled Pursuit of the Ridiculous. A note for the show by the artist. 

In search of possibilities we encounter impossibilities, which lead to some different possibilities. The impossibilities of today may or may not be possible tomorrow; but they are promising; they call you into the unknown.

I am looking into some possible impossibilities and impossible possibilities.

To me if meaningless is meaningless then meaningful is also meaningless. What is meaningful now or here may or may not be meaningful tomorrow or somewhere else.

The infinite needs the finite to manifest itself. The finite embodies the infinite and one can create pockets of space to dwell in comfortably though they are presently fictional - till they become a fact, in time.
