    Dayanita Singh: Book Object

    Book Object
    20 January – 20 March 2016
    Daily, 9am-5pm
    Hawa Mahal, Jaipur, Rajasthan

    Can a book be both a book and an exhibition? And can a book, shown on a wall as a work, also become a catalogue of its very exhibition? With Museum of Chance (Steidl 2014) Dayanita Singh has achieved all of this, creating a work that is simultaneously a book, an art object, an exhibition and a catalogue. A book with 88 images and a short text by Aveek Sen, Museum of Chance transforms into a book-object and exhibition when its 88 different covers are placed inside specially constructed wooden structures and displayed on a wall. In placing the book directly onto the wall in this way, Singh departs from simply just showing edition prints framed on a wall, turning the book itself into the art object: a work to be valued, looked at and read as such, rather than being simply regarded as a gathering of photographic reproductions.

    Conversation Chambers: Museum Bhavan
    18 December 2015 – 31 May 2016
    Opening Thursday 17 December, 7pm
    Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, Delhi

    Dayanita Singh’s Museum Bhavan is a collection of nine of the artist’s mobile museums which will be shown for the first time in India at KNMA. Singh’s museums are built to expand and contract; their structures hide smaller museums and the images from which they are composed continuously grow. Each museum has its own reserve collection from which the constellation of displayed images can be changed. At KNMA Dayanita Singh will be curator in residence for four months and will engage in a conversation with the Museum Bhavan collection. Singh describes this as a living exhibition which will wax and wane over its course.
