SHELF LIFE: Dia Mehhta Bhupal

January 25-March 10, 2023

Gallery SKE, A-4 Green Avenue Street Off Green Avenue, Church Rd, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi, Delhi, India

Gallery SKE, New Delhi, is delighted to announce Shelf Life, Dia Mehhta Bhupal’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. This new body of work presents a series of still-life images, based on books and the shelves they occupy. The artist continues her process of collecting previously printed magazines, meticulously segregating them into color fields after they have been rolled, and then proceeding to make 3D objects. These are then arranged to make the image. The ideas of recycling materials continue to be a preoccupation for Bhupal’s practice. These works open us ways to view how we engage with books today and the memories we all carry of encountering a collection of books.
