Subarnarekha (The Streak of gold)
Hemali Bhuta

CURRENTLY INSTALLING A NEW SHOW (the bookshop remains open from Tuesday to Sunday 2-6pm)

OPENING SATURDAY 2 DECEMBER 3.30PM

Hemali Bhuta is a visual artist born in 1978 working in Bombay, India. She is the co-founder of CONA Foundation, an artist run initiative in Bombay.

"Subarnarekha, the accursed line that has not only witnessed the grave consequences of displacement, alienation but is also contaminated with greed and reeks of transgression. The travel from the project’s germination to where it has come to be, interjected with geologies of another apparatus, employing tools of deliberation, distraction, seperation, coincidences within the new genealogical framework to discover the little treasures in the vast landscape. Maquettes as afterthoughts, intercalation in the process wherein the materiality of the maquette and its value has the potential to supersede the art object and its ability to remain just that. Or whether the intention of the maquettes being the future memorials continues to remain a fantasy of the artist. This reversal of the form becomes the catchment of the project where all that glitters does propose to be gold and where traversing through rituals and legends, every scratch, every streak, everyday a new god is born." (Hemali Bhuta)

The works have been produced with the Men Arvor quarries (Saint-Yrieix-la-Perche), the goldsmith Bijouterie Verlinden (Limoges / Eymoutiers / Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat) and the Moulin du Got (Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat)
