Surabhi Ghosh: Ananta Undone
June 6-27 , 2015
Opening reception Saturday June 6, 6-9 PM
In Ananta Undone, Ghosh considers how repetitive pattern reconciles the limits of human experience within the infinite universe. Deploying fundamental motifs—such as the block, circle, and stripe—she alludes to a range of ways humans have attempted to conceptualize or describe infinity: geometric models, repetitive mark-making, bolts of fabric, grains of sand. But her idiosyncratic materials interfere unpredictably in these metaphysical pursuits, and through manipulating them by hand she reveals an inevitable human finiteness.
Ananta Undone consists of a series of drawings and installations and a collaboration with Sarah Nance.
