L'informe: Works by 6 Women Contemporaries

December 8-January 8, 2023

Gallerie Nvya, 101-103, Square One Designer Arcade, C-2, District Centre, Saket, New Delhi, Delhi, India

Gallerie Nvya presents L’informe, a group show featuring works from 6 women contemporaries. In this exhibition, each artist explores how one can transcend from form to formlessness in their art. What is immediately visible is how each artist uses diverse medium and techniques to define their expressions.

George Bataille introduced the notion of ‘l’informe’–Formlessness. What Bataille means by Formlessness is that art should be brought down to earth, off of its pedestal where it has been standing since antiquity. For Bataille, creativity is in the process. The Formless, in a way, is abstract and indefinable – Bataille himself claims that a word has no definition. It is performative, rather than explanatory. This is what is at the heart of the exhibition.
