OBJECTS / ORIGINS: Cultural Reimaginations
A site-specific installation by Indrani Baruah at Periferry : 4 Jan – 2 Feb, 2012
An exploration of form reflective of a culture and people. Forms of time and origins. Unlike
forms of classical modernism, a unique visual language common to this region in India and
beyond in Southeast Asia. Complex forms, feminine and sinuous, that tell a story beyond
material and craft.
This project is a series of aesthetic responses and spatial interventions that will try to reveal
latent and alternate philosophical worldviews. The context of the project is a ferry docked on
the River – a space ‘in between’ – public and in constant flux and a house – a private space
fixed in time.
