Galerie Mirchandani+Steinruecke presents There is something tremendous about the blue sky, a solo exhibition by contemporary artist Aban Raza. The artist is concerned with the atmospherics of power within the Indian subcontinent, including the violence that
accompanies the curtailment of freedom, the active repression of rights, and the dehumanisation of the marginalized. In the
exhibition, she offers a constellation of moments — some of more visible acute distress than others—where she makes use of colour, elongated human figures and the symbolic landscapes they inhabit to make a commentary on contemporary events that have shaped our recent past. The exhibition invites onlookers to pay attention to those who have participated not only in political action but in the transformation of the political itself.
