Reading 05: TIME and the ARTIST as CHRONICLER

This session will engage with the works of artists and how the poetics, narrativity and language of their work allow us readings of time, space, imagination and decay, love and longing; we read in to the works of artists such as Sudhir Patwardhan, Jitish Kallat, and Sahaj Rahal (involving writings on their work from Ranjit Hoskote, Girish Shahane, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and others) as well as the writer and poet Ruth Padel.

About Six Readings- On Time:
Events, situations, and occasions are scattered within the Milky Way of TIME; but TIME also exists within the details of dust, ornament, walking feet, resistance, closed doors, a blooming flower or rotting fruit, ruins, stories, waste, and even arrogance. As we jump to new toys such as post-pandemic and ‘new normal’ what we forget is how TIME exists across pre- and post- as well as new and old... TIME bridges across epochs and events as well as creates multiple ecologies of existence. In these times we discuss space, materiality, and aesthetics to build a better understanding of TIME.
