APR 13 – AUG 26, 2018
Subodh Gupta: "Adda / Rendez-vous"
Monnaie de Paris
April 13 – August 26, 2018

As the kitchen is the centre of every Indian household, Gupta’s practice too is grounded in the quotidian pantry and it is from here that he reflects on not only personal and communal practices, but also on how often intimate and seemingly insignificant objects and experiences can offer a glimpse into the cosmos at large.

The exhibition takes place in the historic salons of 11 Conti along the banks of the Seine, extends up the main stairway and continues in the inner courtyard of the Monnaie de Paris with monumental sculptures conceived especially for this retrospective.

The range of works in the exhibition give insight into the considered use of scale, material, and “the readymade” in Gupta’s oeuvre. Selected pieces will be on display in conversation with the Monnaie’s permanent collection of metal artifacts to encourage reflection on the medium of metal both in terms of its symbolic value as well as the technical and artistic skill required to manipulate and bring meaning to it.
