Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) presents a solo show on printmaking – Between Vows and Words: Anupam Sud covering five decades of her artistic practice.
Sud’s works can be described as simultaneously sinister and enigmatic, deceptive and irreal. Each composition carries a subtle sense of humour, playfulness, and even mischief. Sud’s works are often presented in the style of a puzzle or a game. Despite being figurative and exhibiting a great formal coherence, the plot and content of her works preclude any narration or elucidation. Word puns and visual clues in the form of half-open chest of drawers, dice, or headless torsos, are important in the staging and decoding of mystery in her universe.
The exhibition is part of the Delhi Art Week, a week-long celebration of the rich diversity of Indian contemporary and modern art in Delhi, taking place across four art zones, 37 galleries, two museums and several participating institutions.
