This group exhibition brings together the work of fifteen interdisciplinary artists from India and Pakistan to explore themes of space and place.
The diverse works in within | without observe notions of space and its manifestation into a place: tangible and incorporeal, real and imagined, public and private. They give shape to ideas of sites of familiarity and belonging – or conversely unbelonging – and to space and place as containers of social life, culture and history (personal and collective). As possible extensions, these often translate into entities whose political and social environments contribute to a sense of being without place. The works investigate and challenge the various social dynamics that exist within such spaces and places, and how they lend themselves to the circumscribed physicality of land, home, body and mind.
