Join us for a conversation with two exhibiting artists - Siva Sai Jeevanantham and Sridhar Balasubramanium moderated by co-curator Bhooma Padmanabhan. They will speak about their individual practices and the works showcased at the biennale. 

Currently being showcased at Forum Art Gallery as part of CPB Edition 3, ‘In The Same River’ by Siva Sai Jeevanantham charts the journey of photographs from being a personal symbol to being an act of resistance in a political landscape.

Showcasing subtle gestures and postures of the body shot alongside natural forms and hand-made objects, ‘Space Between Us’ by Sridhar Balasubramanium provokes us to think of the growing disconnection between our lives and our land.

Recording: Artist talk with Nico Joana Weber


Event is closed.

You can watch the recording of the screening and artist talk with Nico Joana Weber, where she talks to us on her work ‘No longer single root’ (2021) moderated by co-curator Kerstin Meincke on Youtube.

Weber’s work Markasit (2014) is an audio visual piece narrating a brutalist tale of transformation. Shot entirely on the grounds of the Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany, the film deals with the stark contrast between the university's concrete architecture and its immediate surrounding rural environment. 

Weber’s film “No Longer A Single Root” (2021), a CPB commission and premiere, traces transcultural endeavors that became manifest in different examples of Nigerian building culture and under different historical and political circumstances.
