Memories fade leaving behind fragments as the only source of recollection to the past. Forming layers with time as they camouflage, exposing only what is left as the intangible. This fading of memories expresses similarities to the phrase “To be or Not to be” from William Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ as a reflection upon the concept of “Reveal and Conceal”. Here, the phrase illustrates the battle within our subconscious that constantly struggles with the choice of “what memories to keep and what to fade”. The phrase is predicted as a puzzle which is constantly curious of the five senses of the body: Smell, Sight, Hear, Touch & Taste, as an intangible treasure that remains infinite and is subjective to oneself.
In this exhibition, 13 young contemporary artists, namely, Abhijit Saikia, Ashik Ali khan, Bharat Dodiya, Dinar Sultana, Gautam Rahul, Mausham Raj, Meghna Patpatia, Puja Mondal, Rashesh Chauhan, Ravi Chunchula, Rinku Chauhan, RiteshUmate and Sapna Kumari explore the possibilities of exposing memories of the obscuring past in their selective artworks. The remaining fragments created by this constant overlap can be called an “Heirloom”.
