curated by Srinivas Aditya Mopidevi. Bringing together artistic voices from across India

Through diverse mediums, the artists in this exhibition highlight ideas of invisibility,
fragility and extinction. While Deepak Kumar calls for the restoration of greenlands and
insects in the Delhi Capital Region, Shivangi Ladha advocates for the dissolution of the
labels — gender, sexuality, race, caste, creed, disability and class — in the hope
towards one humanity. Manjot Kaur and her collaborators Arvid and Marie present a
video performance on the cycle of life and death. In a playful approach, Harsha
Durugadda carves his self-portrait into Karl Marx’s Das Kapital and Leo Tolstoy’s War

cinematic entry into his homeland.
“We are in a moment politically where there is a fundamental need to reorient our
approaches towards speech and listening. Artists in this exhibition present diverse
possibilities of making oneself heard without necessarily confronting the other,” says
Srinivas Aditya Mopidevi.
