10.12.16 Alex Seton in Kochi-Muziris Biennale

Alex Seton has been selected for the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016 in south western India. In its fifth instalment, the Kochi-Muziris Biennale has been curated by Indian artist, Sudarshan Shetty with 97 artists invited to participate in the exhibition.

The exhibition is set in various spaces across the city of Kochi, the port of Muziris and surrounding islands. In additions to the exhibition the Biennale offers a programme of talks, seminars, screenings, music workshops and educational activities for school children and students.

On the theme of the 2016 Biennale, Forming in the pupil of an eye, Shetty states:

“Forming in the pupil of an eye is not an image of one reality but a reflection of multiple realities and of multiple possibilities in time. It does not question notions of reality, but instead layers many. As its own process, Forming in the pupil of an eye comes from that junction of the physiological with the conceptual. It is an acknowledgement that there is something essential in the way we look at the world, that it is multiple in nature. Forming in the pupil of an eye brings that multiplicity of experience together within the space of Kochi-Muziris Biennale and perhaps to spill over into the world at large.”

Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016
Kochi, Kerala India
