Isolation, Black Ship, Etc

01 December 2010

The inspiration behind Kazi Nasir’s current body of work comes from 19th-century Russian writer Alexander Herzen’s short story—Who is to blame? Nasir, a Kolkata-based visual artist, presents his first solo exhibition in Delhi. With acrylic and watercolours on canvas, the artist intends to portray dystopia and a reality where society has been reduced to a repressed and controlled state. The artist uses various motifs including war planes, exhaust pipes, roses and thorns, distant blue horizons, etc. to represent an unclear and uncharted future.

Isolation, Black Ship, etc…, until 10 December, Latitude 28, F-208, Lado Sarai, New Delhi. For more information, visit
