Curated by Subodh Gupta
The curatorial concept informing the exhibition, “My Colour on Your Plate”, is to use the idea of a “map” as a metaphor, rather than a literal image. It seeks to move beyond the practical history and function of maps as the representation of territory and the boundaries of nation states, towards the way maps embody our desires, as a society and as individuals, to constantly make, unmake and remake our own identities. It also attempts to explore our relationship- as human beings, artists, citizens- to the familiar and the unfamiliar, the Self and the Other. Experienced and perceived through various kinds of difference and similarity it will seek to look for what we hold in common, as well as what we struggle to communicate across limits and distances.
