KAW Questioning the Identity

Kolkata, November 2018:  Our practice as artists are not far away from the lives we lead and the art we admire. Swarup started his questioning early. As a student of fashion, passionate about photography, experiments in imagery came early to him. As a photographer-scenographer-artist-designer, his practice everyday engulfs visual imagery of forms, lines, shapes, and silhouettes on one hand and pursuing their meaning on the other. The body is a reservoir of memories. It is subjected to gaze, to presumption, to judgment, to biases becoming a bed of politics and layers of subtexts. Swarup’s practice as an artist who visualises and actualises images to question the why and wherewithal of this process of subjection that the body undergoes and explore if in some realm of artistic suspension of disbelief the body can be free; free off every trope of identity construction that traditionally dictates what it should be and what it cannot or should not.

Swarup finds it more than a curious and amusing coincidence that all the interrogative questioning words in Bengali start with the letter ‘Kaw’? the first Bengali consonant?

Ki? (What), Key? (Who?), Keno? (Why), Kokhon? (When?), Kothay? (Where?) and  Ki bhabey?(How?).

Swarup weaves in this labyrinth of interrogations about our identities and how we manifest them in our displayed and secret lives; how our identities are constructed and how they gradually dismantle. Swarup Dutta’s solo show KAW is an inquiry into these myths about our identity, who we are and how we become.

Kaw is a series of three bodies of work if viewed in the order in which they have evolved – Khelna-bati, Armour of Weaknesses, and Otherworldly progressing thematically from a space of androgyny to the periphery of struggle, to the eventual evolution of the mutant, ambiguous in both gender and identity. The three bodies of work raise questions about a few dominant ideas. First being ‘play’. This theme becomes a juxtaposition of child-like indulgence, unfettered dalliance to play-acting in a performative sense. His bodies play. With each other, with themselves, with an odd collection of kitchen props which placed out of the usual kitchen context become weapons, sex organs, costumes, and many more things. There is the play of power and there is the play of light. Androgyny is another theme that runs through all the three series. Swarup comments “It would be great if everyone is both male and female”. Swarup’s bodies are androgynous and never sexually obvious, they are various and non-conformist to type, shape, and size. Issues of identity plague us, everyone seems to be trying to save theirs. Which is leading to conflicts worldwide. The artist wants to address these questions of identity and the problems surrounding it, be it sexual, social, political or religious to name a few.

 

Armor of Weaknesses shows the struggle that the bodies undergo to assume other identities, to become other than what they are. The slipping in and out of painfully and expertly crafted bamboo structures almost like slipping in and out of real and assumed realities and identities.

Otherworldlytakes it to the other end of the spectrum where all lines blur and become hazy. What is may not be? It might as well be something else or something in between. The social construct of identities is kept behind to step into a world of phantasmagoria. In discussing fashion’s association with the otherworldly, he further says, “The individual, the outsider, the pioneer, and the mutant: these are the characters who so frequently lead that mutiny.”

KAW also explores the topic of our encounter with nudity in India. We usually stumble before we engage with this volatile pretension. What does nudity mean within the Indian context? Is it always in the context of erotica that nudity may be discussed? What other ways are there? Playfully nude? Seriously nude? Impoverished nude? Can anything be innocently nude? Are we ready to embrace it?  When a Jain monk take his clothes off or a sadhu does the same, why are they any different? Or is it that in all this a subtext of sexual gaze is omnipresent?

KAW is a personal journey questioning who we are. The formats we follow without questioning. And the mythologies we live in. and the mythologies we invent every day. To Survive!!!

KAW: A solo exhibition by Swarup Dutta, Curated by Dr. Paula Sengupta will be hosted at Akar Prakar, Kolkata on 16th Nvember at 6:30  pm to 9:30 pm.

Exhibition Dates: From16th November till 14th December, from 11 am to 7 pm, (Sunday Closed). 

Venue: Akar Prakar, Kolkata

The Dark Side of Life: Mumbai City – Brings Mumbai City At Halt

For the first time in the history of Bollywood, a production house Lakhshya Production held its road show for its upcoming movie ‘The Dark Side Of Life: Mumbai City’. An innovative Promotional exercise, the event was attended by its start cast at Adarsh Nagar Signal, near Oshiwara police station on link road in Andheri West.

“It is an eye opener for Mumbaikars who are so involved with the daily hustle bustle of a metro life that they are unaware of the impending unfortunate events which could occur in our city lives,” said producer Rajesh Pardasani while reminding us of the tragic events surrounding Jia Khan and Pratushya Bannerji.

 

Director Tariq Khan puts it plainly, “Hopelessness and despair is one such state of mind which creeps deeper into our minds without us realising about such a parasite growing within us which all of a sudden brings one into a situation of being cornered in life which brings rise to suicidal tendencies in a human being. Our film delves into the subject and even if it succeeds in bringing a single soul to normalcy, would be a winning moment for us.” This is relevant in present times even with the recent example of a senior law enforcement officer committing suicide.

The soul-touching songs are rendered by Jubin Nautiyal, Amit Mishra, Mohammed Irfan, Altamash Faridi and Aftab Hashim Sabri. Principal cast of the film includes Mahesh Bhat, K.K Menon and Nikhil Ratnaparkhi who are supported by Avi, Gul Sayed, Deep Raj Rana, Neha Khan and Alisha Seema Khan among others.

“The film deals with such tragic consequences those which could have been avoided with a balanced mind of an individual which is most lacking in our city lifestyle,” mentioned Naghma Khan of Shaaz Media Entertainment and the project designer of this film.

‘The Dark Side Of Life: Mumbai City’ is releasing on 23 November across cinema halls nationwide.

LOVE IS LOVE

Love is Love for #LMIFW was inspired by the historic 377-judgement which opened doors of expression for many people across India. Love freely, live freely was our inspiration behind Zoe and Noor, and we’re proud to know that our vision received such love and acceptance from the community!

 

During our 4 days at LMIFW, we came to be acquainted with this young guy named Abhijai, who would visit our stall every day and was very taken by our bridal exhibit. It was only after multiple conversations that he confided in us that the main reason why he kept coming back was because he was imagining himself in one of the gowns – the Noor gown to be specific. This honest confession from Abhijai sparked a series of conversations between our designers and the rest of the team, who all agreed that we should not let popular beliefs or mindsets influence or change our motivation behind this collection. Zoe and Noor were created in solidarity for the #LGBTQ movement. Through them, we wanted to echo our support for diversity and freedom of expression and being your true self. And what is fashion if not a medium of expression? What Abhijai saw in Noor meant the world to us, because it reinforced our faith in what we had created. And so we decided to let Abhijai live his imagination on the last day of the fashion week!

And so it was on Sunday that with the help of our talented interns @mehrkalraaaa and @ashwinbudhraja we pulled off this super fun impromptu shoot with @sassy__potatoes! To us, this was the perfect way to wrap up #LMIFW with the hope that one day #LoveIsLove will be a belief and not a movement! We want to once again thank everyone for all your lovely messages and words of encouragement for the collection, it means a lot to us!

Trip 2 is back with new enteries, destinations and stories. Amyra Dastur plays the role of Ira, she’s Nazia’s (Mallika Dua’s) cousin sister.

She’s really quirky, odd and very independent. Brief was to incorporate a gypsy, wanderer type of style in order to show off the difference between Amyra and the rest of the girls. Even the Indian wear which she wears is more on the gypsy zone, ‘don’t mess with me’ kind of vibe.

Her style is very out there and it’s definitely in the Bohemian zone but as one can see, the prints are mixed and don’t match. It’s meant to show off her rebellious nature.

Again pairing the black boots with the dainty white dress is meant to show off the unconventional sense of Fashion and confidence of the character.  Amyra had to undergo a week of trials until they finally managed to narrow down on the looks.
