A Lease of Life: Ritesh Uttamchandani

10-28 February, 2022

Cymroza Art Gallery, 72 Bhulabhai Desai Road, Mumbai, Maharashtra

Cymroza Art Gallery presents a show by Ritesh Uttamchandani titled A Lease of Life curated by Ranjit Hoskote.

At the heart of the show is a series of photographs dedicated to the afterlives of political posters, the strange and unpredictable processes of recycling by which they are turned into awnings, backdrops to tea stalls, working surfaces in markets, and mats for pavement dwellers. These images capture the raw materiality of an economy premised on ingenious improvisations. They also convey a poignant allegorical charge.
