Exhibit 320 is pleased to announce that Sumakshi Singh has been invited to show at the START Art Fair, London (15-18 September 2016). Two bodies of work that extend her 'In The Garden' series will be curated at the booth as well as the project room.
Sumakshi Singh: Project Title: In The Garden
The project is a curated homage to the experience of two particularly lush, illuminated, breathing, dying and resurrecting gardens which now outlive their creators. The story is of the garden as a portal into a dimension of magic and possibility. Viewers walk into an installation with large delicately constructed white plants made of lace and embroidery suspended from the ceiling along with multiple scrolls of translucent screens displaying a stop motion animation of a garden of light which grows and disappears among flickering fireflies and hummingbirds accompanied by Roger Subriana’s music.

Sumakshi Singh: Booth Solo Title: Interstices: Traces in light, Air and Breath
The booth offered is 'of' the garden, instead of 'in' it.The space will be set up as a mock- natural history museum style exhibit, which displays botanical specimens created with thread. It references memory – a flattening out of experience- a cataloging, archiving and preserving of lace-like words of personal letters which levitate without a ground to attach themselves to, fragile woven-skeletons of pressed flowers, leaves and seeds, floating in glass vitrines, seemingly embroidered on air, fossil like imprints of embroideries on plaster – a repository of the subtle armatures and structures upon which experience plumps itself out but perhaps with spaciousness, air and breath.
