A DIFFERENT ORDER

Nandita Raman
Kay Walkowiak

Curated by Cornelis van Almsick

17.11. - 29.11.2014
FRANZ JOSEFS KAI 3, Vienna

The points of departure for this exhibition are two different constructs of thought and space rooted in India: the Western mondernist planned city of Chandigarh, which was built in the 1950s under Le Corbusier with a Utopian approach, and Maha Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, which is – with 40 million pilgrims – the largest gathering of people worldwide. In new sculptural, filmic and photographic works, Nandita Raman and Kay Walkowiak discuss different aspects of these real places with Utopian characteristics. They examine the topos of a failed utopia as well as the phenomenon of this insatiable longing for a place beyond all places. Not least, this exhibition discusses the question of translation this non-place which, as a place of potentiality, keeps our wish machine running.
