WheredoIendandyoubegin - Shilpa Gupta

By Nicole Sciarone | Metropolis M

Museum Voorlinden's current exhibition Where do I begin is an overview of Mumbai based artist Shilpa Gupta’s practice. Her work deals with larger socio-political topics connected to the border as a concept as well as to its relation with migration, identity and nation formation. She, however, describes her work as “everyday art” as it is a direct response to observing her surroundings. The exhibition has a total of eight of her works on display, ranging from monumental; a performance that was first presented in the My East is Your West exhibition during the 2015 Venice Biennale, to smaller, more intimate works such as the A0 - A5 (2014) series which consists of simple lines with ratios on handwoven cloth, an overview of the range of mediums Gupta works in.
