New Pictures: Amar Kanwar, Such a Morning
April 14, 2018 - August 12, 2018
This exhibition premieres in the United States Such a Morning (2017) by New Delhi–based artist Amar Kanwar. A tale of quiet engagement with truth, the film begins with a solar eclipse, and follows a math professor as he isolates himself in an abandoned train carriage. It is a story full of conflicting moments, of lightness and darkness, as the professor gradually screens out all light and adapts to his encroaching blindness. Over time, the professor records his epiphanies and hallucinations in an Almanac of the Dark, an examination of 49 types of darkness that emerge as a series of letters.
