OPENING ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2017 FROM 5.30 PM TO 8.30 PM
Following the closing of his critically acclaimed retrospective at National Gallery of Modern Art (New Delhi), Indian artist Jitish Kallat presents his first solo exhibition in Belgium at Templon Brussels. With a complex body of works in mixed media (drawing, collage, sculpture, photography), the show brings forth several new dimensions to some of his long-standing artistic inquiries. Covariance delves into ideas of time, sustenance, sleep, vision and perception along with a compelling interplay of scales and proximities, and evocations of the celestial and the cosmological, preoccupations that have recurred across Kallat's wide-ranging work.
Jitish Kallat (born in 1974, Mumbai) currently lives and works in Mumbai. Kallat's work has been exhibited widely across the world. His recent solo exhibitions include mid-career survey exhibition titled Here After Here curated by Catherine David at National Gallery of Modern Art (2017), New Delhi and Covering Letter at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (2016). Other key solo exhibitions include CSMVS Museum, Mumbai (2016); Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (2015); San Jose Museum of Art (2013); the Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne (2012); Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai (2011); and Art Institute of Chicago (2010). He has also exhibited in numerous group exhibitions at venues including Tate Modern, London (2001); Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels (2006), ZKM Museum, Karlsruhe (2007); Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (2007); Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin (2008); Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2008); Jean Tinguely Museum, Basel and Musée national d'art moderne-Centre Pompidou in Paris (2011); and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney (2016). He has participated in a number of international biennale exhibitions including the Havana Biennale (2000) and the Gwangju Biennale (2006).
