As the winter sun makes its way west across the front of the gallery it engages with the architecture of the building, creating geometries that are present in the gallery space as shadows. These markers of time and place advance predictably across the works, a sweeping boundary to the sun’s energy.
Jugnu (‘Firefly’ in Hindi) considers the implication of time and place as protagonists in the processes of making, unmaking and remaking. This series of timber works have been exposed to ultraviolet light to produce geometric images that concurrently respond to and are erased by the sun’s moving rays: the works darken over the duration of the exhibition and the images fade, their relationship to the space lost.
