Studio Art presents Imperfectly Perfect, a group show featuring Debasish Mukherjee, Megha Joshi, Pratul Dash, Rahul Kumar
Remen Chopra W. VanDerVaart and Shivani Aggarwal, curated by Asana Singh.
The title of the exhibition contains within it a conundrum, for how can something be simultaneously perfect and flawed? It is on the one hand authentic and on the other entirely subjective. The acknowledgement of the “imperfectly perfect” is a quest for beauty and joy and the liberation from a fruitless search for an ideal. The Japanese concept of wabi-sabi encourages the appreciation of imperfection, negating ideas of perfection and permanence. It is the imperfection that makes something meaningful and precious, signposting its existence, its purpose, a life lived.
