About Tautology of Memory
Tautology of Memory is one of the first exhibition projects in Singapore to engage with a South Asian archaeological site through the medium of video art. It takes into consideration an Indian art practitioner's evolving perspectives on the Ajanta caves in western India (2nd century BC - 6th century AD); simultaneously it also showcases the curators' evolving engagement with the artist's views and the site itself through archival records. This combination aids the exhibition to at once display an artistic and academic process; both these processes fittingly converge in the Sherd Library at the NUS Museum, a space which strikingly represents the visual, material and academic threads of Southeast Asian archaeology through the renowned archaeologist Prof. John Miksic.

Exhibition Period: 23 April - 28 December 2012
