A Discreet Exit Through Darkness: Soumya Sankar Bose

January 12-March 5, 2023

Experimenter, First Floor, Sunny House, 16/18 Merewether, Road, Colaba, Mumbai, Maharastra, India

Experimenter presents A Discreet Exit Through Darkness, a solo show featuring contemporary artist Soumya Sankar Bose. A Discreet Exit through Darkness marks Bose’s debut work in moving image, in the format of a 360° VR film. This is the first virtual reality (VR) non-animated feature-length film.

Through the work, Bose seeks to delve deep into the darkest recesses of his family history and examine the various enmeshed narratives by recounting a telling episode. The work also offers insight into how imagination, folklore and superstition supplant the lack of a coherent narrative when memory fails to navigate the scarred terrains of an obscure past.
