The conceptual premise of the exhibition anchors from the line, ‘Works on paper and other visible things, not neccessarily intended to be viewed as drawing’. Embarking from this, the exhibition will attempt to explore and reconfigure drawing as a concept by placing works on paper and artworks in other media upon the same plane of thought.

A conversation with Susanta Mandal, Sakshi Gupta and Maki Nishida
Drawing’s strong characteristic is its infinte possiblity. However, some artists say that it proposes limit and limitlessness simulateneously. Indeed, we often drift in its absolute freedom, not knowing where to start and how far it can lead us. Thus, we are caught in this tussle between romanticising the idea of perpetual freedom and the fear of it becoming our reality. The conversation aims to address the question of modality and the ever so transient nature of drawing from one form to another.
