After a gap of five years Jitish Kallat will present Terranum Nuncius, a solo exhibition at Bikaner House by Nature Morte in association with Chemould Prescott Road. Premiering two new major works, a photographic-and-sound installation Covering Letter which draws from the two phonographic Golden Records that were hoisted onto the legendary Voyager 1 and 2 space probes launched by NASA in 1977, and Ellipsis, his largest painting to date that is replete with signs and a web-work of free associations that challenge the viewer with a compelling tension and ambiguity, Kallat commemorates and re-invokes select sounds and images that were composed for expedition into interstellar space as a planetary message to extra-terrestrial life.
