If in a sacred land a traveler… Shaurya Kumar is an artist of recollection who immerses himself in memoirs and imagery of history, context and time; who works in shadows of memory and pulls up fallen and forgotten objects, even if temporarily. He is an avid collector of memories and an observer of frameworks. Employing diverse sets of tools, media, techniques and processes including print, drawing, sculpture and installation, his studio practice focuses on a phenomenological understanding of an object and space, while revealing a labor-intensive process in art making. Indicating notions of presence and absence, these works play with architectural ruins, transient ephemera, and contextual displacements.

In India, I found a way to my paternal heritage—a path that took me through pattern, color and nature.

Using this set, my exploration resulted in the photo series, Through the Roots; Out to the Clearing. Every image is an aspect of the large-scale space I crea

Photographs by Katarina Weslien Curated by Nandita Raman riktata [emptiness] "Recognition is famously a passage from ignorance to knowledge. To recognize, then, is not the same as an initial introduction. Nor does recognition require an exchange of words: more often than not we recognize mutely. And to recognize is by no means to understand that which meets the eye; comprehension need play no part in the moment of recognition. The most important element of the word recognize thus lies in its first syllable, which harks back to something prior, an already existing awareness that makes possible the passage from ignorance to knowledge; a moment of recognition occurs when a prior awareness flashes before us, effecting an instant change in our understanding of that which is beheld." - Amitav Gosh-
