Project 88 is pleased to present Annex and Dissever – Khageswar Rout’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.

Drawing inspiration from organic forms, Rout renders complex vegetal matter in his intricate sculptures. By eternalising objects that evolve continuously within their lifespans, he examines the space between the perpetual and the obsolete.

In his work, Rout problematises the act of reading or representing signs in nature through rational frameworks. His architectonic depictions of the designs found in sensitive pods, flowers, fruits, vegetables, and even barks of trees, expose their inner arrangements. Acutely aware of their spontaneous growth patterns, Rout highlights how regularising their structures into sculptural forms demands a negotiation between reason and instinct.
