Waswo X. Waswo: Photowallah at FOCUS Photography Festival Mumbai


Tasveer is pleased to present Waswo X. Waswo: Photowallah at TARQ from 10th March to 8th April in conjunction with the FOCUS Photography Festival


Photowallah presents a survey of Waswo’s hand-coloured studio portraits–produced in collaboration with Rajesh Soni–that playfully examine the ethnographic photograph-as-document that is linked to the colonial era, as well as the fantasy-inspired make-believe that emanated from traditional Indian portrait studios in the late 19th and 20th centuries.

Tasveer at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale until 29th March


In a Kochi-Muziris Biennale Collateral event, Tasveer is pleased to be showcasing a selection of works from Karen Knorr’s critically acclaimed series: India Song


Karen Knorr blurs the lines between reality and illusion in India Song by inserting animals into architectural spaces and heritage sites. This unexpected juxtaposition playfully subverts cultural spaces and punctures meaning traditionally associated with them, while posing questions about power, gender, colonialism and cultural appropriation through allegory. 


The exhibition is on view at Passage Malabar in Fort Kochi until 29th March 2017.
