Needling Words Sewing Idioms
Breaking and remaking language structures...
an attempt towards re-visioning mediums of expression
The near intentions of the ongoing project are to locate
fresh tendencies in the production of hybrid languages of communication.
The notion of hybrid here refers to the post-colonial situation of
India and its inevitable relationship with its history.
To locate the notion of hybrid is to meticulously
search into the historical and contemporary cultural analysis of modernity
in India. This analysis for me amounts to analysing the multiplicity
of languages of expression. Juxtaposing variations of verbal, visual
and sculptural languages together, produces synthesized conundrums,
often simple on the surface but cryptic in nature.
This process of layering the “intellectual” humdrum of
verbal languages to the processes of meticulous crafts attempts a
minute critique of contemporary metropolitan situation in India, where
dichotomies at various levels and layers prevail together, forming
an alienated subject, working in a liberal but insular social structure.
