||India Special Exhibition “Failed Plot”|
The exhibition titled Failed Plot is inspired by the idea of the incomplete picture. Recent terror events believed to have a locus in West or South Asia and enacted in different parts of the world come to be known in media and academic parlance as the “failed plot.” As investigations get underway, the truth remains elusive, and its quest is abandoned. In a million unrecorded ways, these narratives are completed, abandoned, denied, until they uneasily subside in the residue of public memory. In this exhibition, it rather
urges an enquiry into a more personal sphere, of how we receive and make images and imaginary narratives then the actual mechanism of terror in reality. Also it includes other aspirations and life stories, poems,
manuscripts, ideas that may remain incomplete.
There are 14 participating artists whom include Tejal Shah and Chitra Canesh and from their works, the audiences may overlook at the state of Indian contemporary art that attracts global attraction recently.
