Call Me By Your Name: A Group Show

July 21-August 18, 2021

Vadehra Art Gallery, D-53, Defence Colony, New Delhi, Delhi, India

Vadehra Art Gallery is pleased to present Call Me By Your Name, featuring Anju Dodiya, Atul Dodiya, Arpita Singh, Shilpa Gupta,  Sunil Gupta, Gieve Patel, N.S. Harsha and Sudhir Patwardhan.

Conceptualised by art collector Udit Bhambri as an ode to the complex make-up of contemporary relationships, this exhibition explores the linguistics, imagery and signification of love through expanded notions of coupledom.

The puzzles of love involve two master components: the self and the other, which are a kind of couple. It’s in our nature to acknowledge ourselves in or with some kind of other-hood, so much so that companionship, even when experienced alone, becomes a kind of love. The truth of our times is that any collective identity of ‘we’ is laden with individualities and so in contemporary relationships, we often find we’re living both selfishly and selflessly, acting resilient through constant compromise while balancing self-indulgence with self-sacrifice.
