The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Manish Nai is interested in discovering the abstract dimensions of form through the manipulation of matter, exploring the new life assumed by the cast-offs that change from objects of use—jute, cardboard, newspapers, old cloths—to art objects, divested from any function or utility. This conversation uncovers the multitude of representations and associations of indigo seen in Nai’s work. Featured in Trees of Life – Knowledge in Material is his installation of 99 pieces of compressed indigo jute cloths.

A public programme of Trees of Life – Knowledge in Material.
