Soliloquies curated by Aditi Ghildiyal
Anant Art, New Delhi
'Soliloquies: in the season of Quarantine' was a special curatorial initiative by Anant Art in the times of quarantine and social distancing; a situation that punctuates human life expansively and thus, connects us more than we reckon. A ‘soliloquy’, contextualized as an artistic practice and expression in recluse underscores an artist’s imagination. The works delve into the relevance of art as a necessity and beyond the constructs of an essential ‘market’, owing to its therapeutic and enabling effect.

Observation, truth and materiality interweave to create alternative realities that occupy a realm which is corporeal, yet fictitious, clouding lines of physicality of dimensions. The plurality inherent in existing and functioning within these coordinates, challenge and inspire individuals to explore the intrinsic harmony and conflict embedded in such systems, and simultaneously imagine new spaces. Notions of identity and placement amidst variables construct fresh associations and connotations, where the resulting topography is a visually enriching landscape capturing points of dissonance and accord, shifts in reality, and reimagined spaces.
The curatorial endeavour ‘Reimagining: (Un)Reality and Space’ attempts to explore this conceptual premise through the works of a select group of artists and to take a closer look at their practice, in response to and within the physical and metaphorical space which they occupy and sustain in their art making.
