Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke presents Where do we come from?, Sosa Joseph’s third solo exhibition at the gallery, in which she presents a body of 15 new oil on canvas paintings that were completed between 2019 and 2021.
Sosa Joseph was born and raised in a village in southern Kerala, in a house right by the river. “For us, it all began with the river. It flowed through us every day, every moment”, she says. “The present body of work is my visual exploration of this riverine world, where my memory begins. The river’s ecosystem inspired my imagination, intensified my experience of nature, informed my worldview, influenced my aesthetic, and even gave me my sense of colours and textures. I am deeply thankful.” Sosa Joseph’s works have been exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the 21st Biennale of Sydney; the Setouchi Triennial, Japan; the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam; and the Kochi-Muziris Biennale among other venues.
