The Given Prospects Of Our Academic Sphere Allocate The Possibility Of Analyzing The Problematic In Itself. Archiving As An Academic Discourse Has Evolved Itself Into Areas Of Identity Conflicts And Historical Imputations. The Works Done During The Period 2008-09 Are The Study Of Such Collective Existence Of Knowledge And The Imagery Vocabulary Of The Same. Identification Of The Mammoth Existence Of Tiny Structures Has Been The Prime Focus Of Post Modern And Subaltern Cultural Dissertations. My Images Are Raw Materials With Such Multiplicity In Nature. They Are Interconnected Socially, Politically And Historically. The Concepts Are Derived Out Of The Blending Of These And Take Shape Of An Ironic Metamorphosis, Which Is Impartial To Any Constructed Visual Identity. I Historicize In Order To Re-Read / Re-Redefine Which Has A Perceptive Of Specific Context In The Contemporary Social Structure. The Semantic Density And Solidity These Attempts Have To Be Read In This Light. My Endeavorer Is To Initiate Visual Dialogues Of Such Manner Through An Evolvement Of Historical Imageries In Transcended Time And Space. My Own Enquiry Regarding Various Timeless Terms Like Classification, Conflicts And Conquest In Many Given Social Strata Are Represented In A Pictorial Space Which Ignites Many Questions Regarding The Functions Of The Images Which Are Constructed / Reproduced. As A Mere Beholder, I Group, Classify And Emancipate The Different Attitudes And Functions Of Ideas/Images Here In A Specified Territory. It Is Not Merely A Process Of Production/Reproduction Of Images But Rather A Systematic Intervention/Manipulation Of A Visual Practitioner. I, As An Artist, Am Privileged To Be Endowed With The Freedom/Will To Envisage My Knowledge In My Own Perspectives. This Perspective Is Visually Manipulated Through The Pictorial Devises Which I Occupy, A Devise Inherited To Any Mode Of ‘Capturing’, The Scientific And Philosophical Aspects Of Gaze. I Distort Some And Elucidate Some Other. I Function As An ‘Other’ And Articulate The Spaces For The ‘Other’.
