Ritesh Ajmeri

The aspect of displacing all the axes for cognitive perception is fundamental to my art-works. That is not from the identification or interpretation of the meaning of an object but from the dispersion of its contexts when overridden by viewers. So, ellipsis is the most significant feature of my works, where I could enjoy engaging not viewer’s eyes but minds in the interstices between an art-object and its surroundings. The locus of attention is yet retained by the presence of the art-object.


Sometimes, I bring the question of culture and race, of self and ‘othering’ by inserting a life-size sculpture of me shrouded in ‘colour’, distorted in ‘shape’ and put in strange ‘spaces’.  And sometimes my works employs sarcasm and ‘speaks’ about sarcasm politically, like as if I make resemblance with a speech-bubble against the white mount in the frame in my ‘Brain’ works, which is deeply rooted from my own experiences while watching and participating in the making process of traditional Indian sculptures from my grandfather days. I refer to perceiving the object in actuality, and the mediated reality where the object begets in the form of live telecasts, too. Similarly, ‘Real’ points to the aspect of pervasive spectacularity in my everyday life, which can also be switched off and on fused at any point.


‘Nature’, ‘real-time’, ‘space’, ‘image’, all acquire and moult meanings where I have been situated in my art-practice and middle-class background of India; where media, objects, and images are incessantly susceptible to instability.
