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).

You are cordially invited on

Tuesday 10th July, 16.00 – 19.00
