CONCEPT OF ARTWORK

In a one-of-its-kind collaboration, Bharti Kher and Subodh Gupta come together again for charity, to create an artwork that extends both artists’ long-standing explorations of found objects and ritual within the everyday. Combining elements from their signature materials – the utensil, and the bindi – with a fibreglass tiger head, the unique piece speaks simultaneously to their commitment towards art as a vehicle for social good.


ABOUT BHARTI KHER & SUBODH GUPTA (INDIA)

Bharti Kher’s art gives form to quotidian life and its daily rituals in a way that reassesses and transforms their meaning to yield an air of magical realism. Now living in New Delhi, India, her use of found objects is informed by her own position as an artist located between geographic and social milieus. Her way of working is exploratory: surveying, looking, collecting, and transforming, as she repositions the viewer’s relationship with the object and initiates a dialogue between metaphysical and material pursuits. Subodh Gupta’s sculpture incorporates everyday objects that are ubiquitous throughout India, such as steel tiffin lunch boxes, thali pans, bicycles and milk pails. From such ordinary items the artist produces breathtaking sculptures that reflect on the economic transformation of his homeland. His works investigate the sustaining and even transformational power of the everyday.

雕塑構思:

芭蒂・克爾及蘇博德・古普塔再度為慈善而合作,共同策劃這個別具意義的創作項目。這件作品延續了他們一直以來探索拾得之物和日常生活的創作主調。兩位藝術家將一個由玻璃纖維製成的老虎頭,與餐具及印度婦女畫在額上的圓點等他們常用的物料結合在一起,展現他們以藝術推動社會公益的堅持。


芭蒂・克爾及蘇博德・古普塔(印度)

芭蒂・克爾1969年在倫敦出生,她以獨特手法呈現日常生活裡的平凡事物,重新審視及改變它們的意義,營造出魔幻現實主義的效果。克爾現於印度新德里居住,她遊走於不同國家和社會文化之間,這些經歷啟發她以收集所得的物料創作。她的創作方式猶如一場探索,她透過調查、觀看、收集和改造,改變觀眾與物件之間的關係,並使精神和物質上的追求相互碰撞。

蘇博德・古普塔1964年在印度比哈爾邦卡高爾出生,他在雕塑創作中融入多層式餐盒、盛載印度菜的金屬圓盤、自行車及牛奶桶等在印度常見的生活用品。古普塔以這些平凡的物件,製作出令人嘆為觀止的雕塑,藉以反映其故鄉的經濟變化。他的作品展示日復日的生活所蘊涵的力量,或足以滴水穿石。
