LONDON.- Haunch of Venison London will present an
exhibition of new work by the Indian artist Jitish Kallat. Following his
acclaimed exhibition at Haunch of Venison Zürich in 2008, Kallat’s new work
showcases the full range of his visual vocabulary incorporating video,
sculptural installation, photography and the large format paintings for which he
is best known.
Tackling his foundational themes of sustenance, survival
and mortality in the contemporary urban environment of Mumbai, Kallat offsets a
vivid, hand-made aesthetic with digitised renderings of streets fit-to-burst,
where the cumulative impression of daily existence is pushed to the
extreme. On view 15 February through 27 March, 2010.
