Event description

Description

As part of ACAW's 2018 signature program, Thinking Collections: Open Studios spotlighting 28+ remarkable artists in the context of their own intimate studios and creative workspaces —with practices that broaden a variety of artistic and philosophical inquiries, directly or indirectly related to Asia. For full details and agenda visit ACAW.info

Vikram Divecha's engagements with institutions, urban processes and commercial operations leave behind a repository of material at his studio. His strategies of intervention, and collaboration are evidenced throughout these various art objects and Divecha takes his visitors through each adventure: Gare Saint Lazare station, Paris; an inconspicuous venture at Frieze Art Fair, New York; participation from Manhattan’s Road Marking crew; and his growing interest about how light descends upon objects from Melanesia at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Divecha is a Beirut-born, Mumbai-bred artist, currently based between New York and Dubai. His work addresses time, value and labour. Divecha’s practice has developed around what he calls ‘found processes’—those forces and capacities at work within state, social, economic and industrial spheres. His engagements translate into public art, sculptural installations, video and drawings. Exhibitions include - Co-Lab: Contemporary Art and Savoir-faire, Louvre Abu Dhabi, UAE (2017), Rock, Paper, Scissors: Positions in Play, National Pavilion UAE, 57th Venice Biennale, Venice (2017); Tamawuj, Sharjah Biennial 13, Sharjah (2017); Minor Work, Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde, Dubai (2017).
