surface tension

Each photograph in this exhibition represents some form of tension at a surface.

Not only is the photograph a two-dimensional surface, but Sujata also chooses to play with the medium to represent her subjects even more flatly. This probably arose from her love of Science, in particular familiarity with scientific diagrams and microscope slides, and reducing things to dimensions one can comprehend easily.

Her photography often depicts a tension between conflicting sides trying to achieve a balance, be it nature’s weathering of man-made creations, or the conflict between different materials in a landscape. The struggle between the two sides leads to new creations and these boundary crossings are where her interest lies. Such as a wall becoming a canvas for landscape imagery evolving on its surface, it somehow longs for nature – waterfalls, tributaries, hillsides – while existing in an urban setting. Or the uncanny preservation of a single face in a weathered collage of old newspapers, making us wonder whether someone interfered with nature’s course.

Sujata is currently ‘Crossing Parallels’ artist in residence at TU Delft, where she conducts artistic research on patterning concrete surfaces, in collaboration with Stephen Picken, Professor of Polymers. This evolved directly from her photography series Concrete Abstraction. Her idea is to seed the works and to encourage nature to follow its course in a particular way to create beautiful patterns on concrete surfaces, much like those in Inversion and Hillscape (2015).

textiel factorij update

I am currently working on my part of the Textiel Factorij and have spent a few weeks in India doing research into the arts and crafts techniques used during the age of textile trade between the Netherlands and India. I have been working with craftspeople in Gujarat (Mata ni Pachedi artisans, who paint textiles used in the worship of Hindu goddesses, and who also use block printing to aid their production; Block-carvers in Pethapur; Digital fabrication expertise and the FabLab in Ahmedabad CEPT University.) The theme of my project is automation.

I have recently started a blog about my project Signature Print, and I still have a lot to document!

The artwork outcome of the project will be presented at Twentse Welle Museum (in Enschede, the Netherlands) in 2018. More info will follow!
