Proverbial In(ter)ventions | Ratnadeep Gopal Adivrekar

[Every move brings a change, 2007, Oil on Canvas]

Date: 6 June - 26 July 2009
Venue: NUS Museum
Curator: Shabbir Hussain Mustafa

From pithy statements that condense common experience into memorable form and ponderings on the dilemmas of postcoloniality – Proverbial In(ter)ventions – attempts to dislodge the classical project of producing precise meaning out of nebulous chronologies. Revealed in the artworks is the contention that man is not only made human by the curricular content of humanity’s knowledge and education but also by its inadequacies, ruptures and paradoxes.
