Synopsis

One of South Asia's most compelling artists, Jitish Kallat has built an immersive practice, ranging from ideas of time, recursion, and historical recall, to deliberations on the cosmopolis and the intertwined spheres of ecology and cosmology. The curator of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale in 2014, his work has been exhibited widely at museums and institutions worldwide. His vast oeuvre- spanning painting, photography, sculptural installation, and video-reveals his commitment to unveiling the meditative concerns of the self, often simultaneously situating the metropolis while also relating to the cosmic. This specially commissioned monograph commemorates a retrospective exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, in 2017. Illustrations map Kallat's expansive collection of artworks, exhibition displays, and found imagery. In addition, this book explores the visual culture which inspires and influences Kallat's wide-ranging works.
